I would of prefered a new cast in the future as well. Enterprise K or something with brand new technology and the likes. I think that maybe they are keeping that for a future tv series. (I can always hope)
Going back in the past and changing Canon I have nothing agaist it and I am a Dire fan of trek. In TOS canon was not followed during the series itself anyway so it's nto a big deal.
a few things do bother me. Having the flagship in the hands of cadets it very bizarre to say the least. I hope it,s explain in a very good way in the movie. The visuals are way nice. And please stop being bothered about the car in the begining. We still have things from the roman period here and it's been what 2000 years ago. Makes sense to have a few cars still on the road even if it is in the 23rd century.
I for one will be there on opening night. I would not miss it for anything.
PS Enterprise was a great series. You just have to keep an open mind. Season 3 and 4 were just grand. Having a glipse in the vulcan culture was awesome.
