I don't think there's any misrepresentation. The first half of the article is a general feeling among fans of SW and ST that originals are fine just as they are.
The second half starts with "The editor of Ex Astris Scientia, Bern Schneider, said at this stage, he wasn't too perturbed by the changes" and continuesd along that line to the end. It then says he doesn't get hate mail and the changes add to the realism.
The point of the article is pretty much that TNG fans are much more amenable to change than SW fans. Surely?
