Abrams going to SW is a little like Roy Williams leaving Kansas for North Carolina. How could KU alum begrudge him returning to his first love after all the success he had with KU? And it's not like things have been bad for KU since Williams left. I'll hold onto that as a metaphor for what just happened here.
I know KU people that still hate Roy Williams.

Trek supposedly inspried Lucas to work in Sci-Fi. The big box office of Star Wars moved Star Trek from Phase 2 to TMP, right? They've been linked before.
Heck, if you look at the books, you've had people crossing back and forth since the beginning. Case in point: Alan Dean Foster, who wrote the first two STAR WARS novels and has also written numerous TREK books, including the novelization of the most recent TREK movie.
Oh absolutely. Christie Golden has done both. So has KW Jeter. (I'm sure you knew that)
