2009's reboot of Star Trek was hugely successful (at least domestically), which is why it's surprising it took four years for the follow up to come together, as 2-3 years is the standard model these days. 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness was not as successful (at least domestically), and that may have been due partly to that delay. Which may be why...
