But is the outrage real? I thought it was all parody.
Here, that's mostly a yes, but other places...

I can't believe the outrage going on here and on Trekmovie. It was a cool gag. Get a sense of humour, people, FFS!!!!!
If you think they're bad, you should see the comments when this was posted on Facebook. They're still not over Trek being rebooted, let alone being able to face JJ on Conan.
There are some folks still getting over the outrage they felt following the Variety announcement back in April 2006.


All you can really do is say "Okay, that's... nice," and take your earliest opportunity to make a graceful exit, because reasonable discussion just ain't going to be happening.
Don't I know it! My "experience" wasn't on Facebook, but I surely dealt with some zealots over the course of several months that made trekker spoofs seem like an understatement.

I wish I'd run into your sage advice about a year ago...
