My two kids both have met Carolyn and are fans of hers as well as the original Star Trek. My son first saw the trailer last summer and was really excited about seeing this film. He had it built up so much in his mind that I was worried he might be disappointed.
He wasn't. He and his sister (who happens to have studied Enceladus extensively as a budding geologist) both saw the film at an IMAX theater in Anaheim. Both stayed through the credits and cheered when Carolyn's name came up.
Here is Taylor's review:

It was an Indiana Jones meets Star Wars thrill ride! The relationship
between the three musketeers(kirk, spock, bones) was amazing. The new
actors boldly go to new heights. They took the characters to different
places, emotionally, than what was seen in the original series. At the
same time, it was nice to see a lot of the same characteristics and
lines that we all know and love. I have already seen it a second time.
Its that good. Tyanna and I both smiled for the cassini moment(i dont
want to ruin it for you dad).

I'll send Tyanna's commentary when I get it from her. Needless to say, my 19 year old son loved the film and ranks it amongst his all time top five favorite films. I am waiting for Godot. Then I will go see it...
