On the subject of rebooting The Original Series. If you watch the documentry "Trek Nation" made by Gene's son, there is an interesting part in which Gene's son shows JJ Abrams a clip of Gene saying how he thinks it would be great to redo the TOS with "young fresh actors". Cannot find the clip but the documentary is on netflix.
While I do agree that The new Star Trek is heavy on the action and light on the Sci-Fi, I found the movie pretty entertaining, which is the point.
"Science Fiction has been used by authors and film/television program makers as a device to explore more wide ranging philosophical subjects such as identity, desire, morality and social structure etc."

This is what Roddenberry did. Used Sci-fi as a way to explore the human condition. Which is NOT what the latest movie did.
