JJ has officially lied to Star Trek.
Deep breaths. Take deep breaths.

If this is indeed true, then Disney apparently was able to talk him into changing his mind. No big deal - people change their minds every day. Having said once in an interview that he thought someone else ought to direct Star Wars 7 does not constitute a solemn promise by J.J. Abrams to Star Trek, Star Trek fans, or anyone else that he would never or could never ever be convinced to do it himself.
