Re: Could we Trekkers have saved the Trek XI script? [SPOILERS]
No, no. Trekkers really couldn't. Hell, John Logan, Roberto Orci and Kurtzman all claimed to be hardcore fans and while XI was stronger than Nemesis both had a variety of issues.
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse would be my choice since LOST is about the only consistently compelling show on television at the moment and I definitely know they can come up with great twists, interesting stories, intriguing villians and their form when it comes to structure and plot is amazing.
I'm pretty sure I heard that Damon will be working more directly on the next one.
Lost has some of the most intricate attention to detail I've ever seen. I'd love to see him bring that to Trek.
All these arguments have happened before, and all these arguments will happen again.
