Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars
The guy even admited he was at heart a Star Wars fan, and the theater is essentially Star Wars' homefield so the whole premise is deeply biased in favor of Star Wars.
The beauty of the Trek format is that its flexible enough for all kinds of stories from many different creators.
