^ Oh, actually I totally agree with you, Mr Homm. I almost included a line in my earlier post comparing certain silly scifi fans to certain silly sports fans.
... and the line about Harlan was a joke. Someone once posted a picture of Ellison who was peering out at you and chewing on his glasses with that particular phrase written over it. The image seemed oddly appropriate at the time when I posted.
I just fail to see the logic in assuming (as one poster stated) that J.J. must never have watched any Trek because he once admitted that it was Star Wars that he loved.
