The story establishes an alternate reality   through time-travel by both Nero and the original Spock Leonard Nimoy , freeing the film and the franchise from established continuity constraints.
The Gene Roddenberry years, when stories might play with questions of science, ideals or philosophy, have been replaced by stories reduced to loud and colorful action. As a story idea, this is sort of brilliant and saves on invention, because young Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Scotty and the rest channel their later selves. The child is father to the man, or the Vulcan, and all that. This is fun. And when Leonard Nimoy himself returns as the aged Spock, encountering another Spock Zachary Quinto as a young man, I was kind of delighted, although as is customary in many sci-fi films, nobody is as astonished as they should be. Holy moly!
