"I'm a Doctor, not an elevator." -- Bones, 'Star Trek'

Film Really useful interview with Star Trek co-writer and executive producer Roberto Orci which clarifies that the new film isn't a remake or a re-imagining, it is mostly canon and they're only messing with anything that hasn't officially been established: "The reason we aren’t starting over is because the people involved, both fans and behind the scenes, have worked so hard to specify what is canon - then to simply ignore it would be unnecessary. There is so much about The Original Series that is worth continuing. It is not like Batman where you can ignore everything. That being said there are some things that have never been specified fully in canon that we take liberties with."
