Re: Lack Of 'Star Trek XI' At Comic-Con Disappoints Abrams

Yeah, Abrams's comments make perfect sense. He's remaking an olde show, but wants people, especially non-hardcores to know that he isn't going to be carrying over any of the outdated over-the-top elements.

Like constant panty-shots.

Or a 'futuristic' computer that is clearly (and noisily) analog.

Or WWII circuit boards in engineering.

Sometimes a faithful redo ends up looking like it's making fun of the original. For example, when they did the Justice League episode "Legends" a lot of people thought they were mocking Golden Age comics, even though it was just a loving recreation.
Time Travel was and will be confusing
