Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars
Star Trek fans have a stereotype of being nerds so JJ Abrams' mean-spirited "This isn't aimed at THOSE people!" remarks were just to make his product appear cooler and more mainstream. He gets to be more honest with Wars as he'd just be insulting himself if he said the same thing.
Political spin machines would be awestruck at how this out of context remark has been blown out of proportion.
J.J. Abrams didn't change Star Trek, audience expectations did.
