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

Star Trek has survived many different directors. Frankly, it's amazing that Star Trek still exists at all. I'm sure everything will work itself out. At least now Hollywood has an idea of what a new, successful Trek franchise can look like.
I just hope that Paramount doesn't cut the budget for Trek 3 in response.
Assuming STID makes a good profit and since Bad Robot and Abrams will still be involved in some way, why would they?
While it's different people, you'd have thought The Final Frontier would've had a bigger budget based on the financial success of the prior four films. Paramount may not let another director draw up a huge budget for a follow-up that isn't done by Abrams.
