I had a lot of fun watching the new movie. That's the main difference between this alternate timeline and TOS: now it is pure fun, excitement & adventure with just a hint of deeper intellectual thought. TOS had many moments of fun and joy, but Roddenberry seemed to me to be more interested in thoughtful topics portrayed through a sci-fi lens.
After my wife and I got home, we just had to watch more Star Trek (the 2009 reboot and some TOS Blu-ray episodes).
