TheHumanCannonball: I'm not that big of a fan of Abram's Trek, though I don't hate them. That said, with him in doing both series, I hope he doesn't start homogenizing things. Lens flare and shaky cam are almost a given

Give him the Harry Potter license and then we can finally do the best three-way crossover trilogy that fanfic writers can churn out.

trapped-in-CH: Abrams should merge the two franchises and then everyone'll be happy!  Trek Wars!


Cool. Maybe we'll get this "Enterprise vs Star Destroyer" thing settled once and for all.

If he does good, JJ Abrams will see the cowboy one more time. He'll see the cowboy two more times if he does bad.

born_yesterday: mongbiohazard: I'm sure it sounds by now like I hated the movie but I really didn't - I really liked it quite a bit. The plot was sloppy as HELL, the science made no sense at all (how the hell was future Spock going to see Vulcan destroyed from a moon in another system without a serious telescope and years to wait for the light to reach him?) - but JJ had a LOT of baggage to shed while reintroducing the old characters to a new audience, so I gave him a mulligan on the plot. He got the characters right, and made them interesting, and made someone new to the series understand WHAT was interesting about them, and that was all very important.

I was 100% with you, right up to here.  I think Abrams used the history of the characters as a crutch to drive the plot contrivances.  Why was the guy who flunked out of Space School, snuck on board the ship, and was just marooned from the ship put in command?  Oh, because he knew about the bad guy's plan because he knew the old guy from the future.  Let's forget for a second that the Federation is well aware that alternate universes exist where a Spock with a goatee is the most evil sonofabiatch in the Empire; I'm sure there are no razors in the future.  But I'm sure his word was good enough.

My point is, take out the names "Spock" and "Kirk", along with the rest of the backbone of the Federation setting, and the movie loses any illusionary vestiges of credibility.


Actually:  I retract that; the Federation had no reason at all to listen to Spock, they had absolutely no farking clue who he really was or where/when the hell he was from.

So your opinion on how any franchise should be run is invalid. Shutup and stop whining that Abrams didn't ham-fist you into ST09 like he did Nemoy.

With utmost respect,

If you wish to engage in an actual discussion with Bill on this topic, I suggest you head over to reddit. He's a regular on /r/startrek.
