Enough with the cheeseburger analogies, I'm getting hungry.
OK, then how about this: "Star Trek" is like a nice lager, while "Star Wars" is more of an ale....

Are we talking Cheeburger, Cheeburger vs. McDonald's or Trek vs. Wars? Inquiring minds want to know.
Well I am talking about the shows. What is it that makes them different, what about their souls are different.
Does that matter? Even if their "souls" are different, that just means that a director has to adapt his style to fit the tone or genre or "soul" of whatever his current project is.
I certainly think Abrams will be capable of both. He's got a chance to basically manage the team he grew up rooting for as a kid. Based on that, and the ownership he probably feels for SW as a life-long fan, it will be interesting to see if SW fans think he caught the franchise's "soul" or not. They may scrutinize him and be more critical than some Trek fans were.
