Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars
Abrams went off and did other projects for several years before returning to Star Trek. If Star Wars is 2015, then Star Trek is 2017. No problem.
"I think [J.J. Abrams has] done a great thing for Star Trek. Iím very grateful to him. We all owe him a lot. When someone comes along like he has done and picks it up and elevates it, we should be grateful." - Leonard Nimoy
