Re: New JJ Abrams interview
He's just telling all the people who don't speak Klingon or hang around various TrekBBSes or don't know who farted and when in an episode that aired in 1967 that these movies he's making, you can enjoy them coming in fresh and without previously knowing anything about Trek.
Sure, I get that. But I would have phrased it differently, if I were him. "This movie was not made for 'Star Trek' fans" sounds rather dismissive. After all, it's the fans who kept the franchise alive for 46 six years. Without the fans, TMP never would have happened. Star Trek would just be a canceled TV show from the sixties, nothing more. I think we deserve better than "this movie is not for you".
