Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

He's finished ruining Star Trek so he can now move on to Star Wars and make the prequels look like masterpieces.
He couldn't drag Trek lower than The Final Frontier
, both nearly killing the franchise.
Hell, Abram's movie was arguably better than Generations, Nemesis, TMP,
and The Search For Spock
as well, not to mention much of Voyager
He did a good job with Mission: Impossible, too, so I bet he could make a fun STAR WARS movie, assuming this isn't just another crazy internet rumor.
(Yeah, I know. So much for "backing away.")
(Sigh. So much for backing away.)
Just for clarification, I wasn't commenting on the quality of Star Trek 2009
just the fact that other Trek projects have come far closer to "ruining" the franchise.
