Re: Could we Trekkers have saved the Trek XI script? [SPOILERS]

"Trekkers" should not be allowed near any Star Trek production, ever, unless it's to watch it.
Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof are dyed-in-the-wool Trekkies.

Difference being they were on a team that included people who'd never experienced Trek, or very little, so it provided for a good balance between the two points of view. One would stop the other from doing something that would probably piss off a great deal of Trek fans and likewise one party would stop the other from doing something that would put off the general audience.

I like the new production team aka "Supreme Court". With Lindelof working with Kurtzman and Orci on the sequel script, I'm sure a few of these issues with plot and pacing will be addressed nicely.
