There's plenty of action, some really brilliantly choreographed stuff that gets hinted at in the trailers. Some new expanded sets of the Ent, though maybe that's just really good CG, visually the film is stunning. One can only imagine what JJ will achieve in terms of production values with a Star Wars budget. Its good news for them that they bagged JJ.
As for NuTrek, if a 3rd gets made, maybe a new director will bring something else to it.
Depending on the property, you gotta strike the iron when it's hot. People can wait 10 years for Star Wars sequels just fine; with Star Trek, it has been newly knighted as being 'cool' finally. But you gotta keep the people interested because at the end of the day, at a drop of a hat, people will drop Star Trek for the hotter girl (Star Wars).

Star Trek as a franchise is as iconic as it is vulnerable.
