Exactly as I see it.

That could by entertaining and fun to watch........yet no matter how many twists they do you basically already know how it will end.
I think the time to be brave and try something new is now. Star Trek2 will likely be a success and everyone who liked the first one will watch the second. There is no real need to "play it safe" and rehash old storylines because it minimizes risk on the contrary, this could be exactly what puts people of if there ever is going to be anther movie.
