Right, because the Romulans cloning Picard thinking he's the Federation's equivalent to Big Boss or something then giving him like 5 battleships duct taped together into one boring ass monstrosity was totally something that could be ruined (not to mention killing off Data and replacing him with Before).
In all fairness most Trek plots are pretty pulpy.
Space soldiers need to stop Earth's own creation gone bad from blowing them up while showing their junk.
A guy with a vendetta wants to annihilate worlds but wants to show the hero how much better he is before he does so.
A giant space probe wants to talk to dolphins but almost blows up the world in doing so.
Guys with their heads sewn together have Chernobyl in space and our heroes must scooby doo their way to preventing a war.
I actually liked Star Trek 10 in concept, just they were all done terribly. The Abrams movies are kind of the opposite, they have some issues with the writing made up for by some great actors and a good director (when you finish making fun of the lens flares).
