Sounds to me like he just gave away that John Harrison is an alias. Abrams is going to blow a fuse.

Well... since it's either the first and last names of deceased Beatles put together, or the inventor of the marine chronometer that keeps perfect time across longitude - I never figured it could be anything other than a nom de plume.

Saying Harrison is a pseudonym doesn't give anything away though. If anything, it heightens the mystery.

I'm sure it's still more than Abrams, Mr "telling things to the audience is evil" would have preferred.

Wrong.

It tells us that when his identity is revealed it will be a big moment- someone known even to casual Trek viewers as bad ass.
