you are watching actors playing actors playing characters, at least of Spock and Bones (Zachary Quinto playing Leonard Nimoy playing Spock). It's almost like a Sat Night skit, but without the laughs and it works.
Well put - I haven't seen this one yet, but I thought the first one did a really good job of nailing the characters. I was a big fan of the original series as a kid and the subsequent versions never quite got there. These do IMO for the reason you state.
