Or you know, it could have been left.
Why do these same universes have to constantly be retold in different versions?
I have no desire to see Kirk, Spock, Sulu, Ohuru, etc... again. I saw them. They were done wonderfully by Shatner, Nimoy, Takei, Nichols, etc...
THAT STORY HAS BEEN TOLD
Move on to something else.
Reboots are the worst thing to happen to Hollywood.
