Anniversary nonsense appeals to hardcore fandoms. Paramount has already demonstrated that their business and creative decisions vis-a-vis Star Trek are no longer driven by that kind of pandering.
Anniversaries are marketing opportunities. Everyone else who has celebrated a 50th anniversary in recent years has marked it somehow, and most Trek anniversaries have been marked
Yes, and there's no reason at all to produce and release a 150 million dollar movie to support an anniversary unless it makes business sense in general terms. "Marketing opportunities" are exploited to sell product; product doesn't exist to assist marketing (regardless of what the guys in marketing believe).

Paramount's going to let the Bad Robot people run this show for a while - so if the director isn't Abrams it will be someone mutually agreeable to him and to the Paramount suits.

Bad Robot can still be involved even if Abrams does not direct.
You just repeated me.
