Contrary to fan's expectations, new movie was not a prequel to original series, but an original story set in alternative timeline. After release in 2009 it was well-received by critics and was nominated for four "Oscar" awards.
From Memory Alpha:

"A cataclysm in the 24th century throws two ships back in time to the 23rd century, altering the course of history. With a different life where he never knew his father, James T. Kirk becomes a brilliant yet cynical misfit who is finally convinced to join Starfleet by Captain Christopher Pike in 2255. Three years later, Kirk, Vulcan First Officer Spock, and the young crew of the new USS Enterprise, with guidance from Spock's future self, must figure out a way to work together to prevent the one responsible for the death of Kirk's father, the future Romulan known as Nero, from destroying the Federation in a mad quest for vengeance."

Abrams, composer Michael Giacchino, actors, and etc. The "original Spock" Leonard Nimoy will not be making an appearance. The film will also introduce a new villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
