Re: USA Today poll: 70% want Shatner back as Kirk

Abrams responds, "You and I could come up with dozens of ways, but every way that we came up with felt like it was transparently fan boys trying to get Shatner in the movie."

I could care less whether Shatner is in this or not, but still - Abrams' last sentence sums it up both as clear and as brief as you can get.
Yeah, like old Spock going back in time to team up with young Spock to stop some future Romulans from killing past Kirk is that much better than the work of "fan boys." Don't writers get paid for coming up with stories that do what fans like but in ways that are better than fans could do?
