Anniversaries mean something. It's a matter of pride, of accomplishment, that something can endure and still be remembered and loved and treasured 50 years after it's released...

Yeah, yeah. That doesn't mean deciding to spend 150 million dollars on a movie in a given year just because it's a birthday/anniversary what-have-you, when other business decisions make more sense.

You're selling something to a dedicated fan base you can leverage an anniversary - you're selling it to a big audience with no sentimental attachment to it, as is necessary for films as expensive as the new Trek movies, that kind of thing means a lot less.

I wonder if he'll say it. It's something you shouldn't say to any fan base,
It needed to be said, and he said it.

The fact that he hurt your feelings is irrelevant.
Damn straight - not just irrelevant, but a good thing. Need to break a few eggs.
