J.J. Abrams may not be a "Trek" guy, but he certainly understood the concept of slashfic and provided an endless string of new possibilities while still tossing raw meat at the feet of the old slash fandom. Come on, Spock choking Kirk? FABULOUS!
I really enjoyed that Kirk got beat up so often to begin with. It was like J.J. Abrams took all of the old Star Trek mythos, said, "Yeah I can only work with a fraction of this," cheerfully disregarded everything he didn't like, and just ran with what he did. At times I was a bit freaked out with what he did with Spock, but Zack Quinto did a good job. And they got the eyebrows under control, thankfully.
