But still compared to other movies nowadays even a messed up Star Trek movie is better!
I just wish a better solution could have been found to do an "origins" story.
It's been said that this is the only way the Star Trek story could have gone. Really? I disagree. That seems to be just lazy.

Was I the only one that was shocked when they did not go back and "fix" everything at the end of the movie? That seems to be extremely against Srar Trek (The Original Series). Because ALWAYS they would fix it so everything would go back to normal. Like in Mirror Mirror, and City on the Edge of Forever. Both dealing with time travel and alternate realities.
