I wanted to like this, to see if the Trek line could be re-imagined and brought back. Despite the problems with the first move I still had hope. This movie removed that hope. I could go into all the plot holes, but I'll just focus on the idea that is relies completely on having viewers aware of the original, even though the point is that you don't need to know the original. That paradox is bad enough, but the characters in the movie itself are unaware of the history of their reality (e.g. Khan is an integral part of the Star Trek universe, and no one in Star Trek knows who he is). Disappointing waste.
