But to say that Trek fans are some how defeated because Abrams Trek is popular is pure non-sense.
The popularity of Abrams' movies is the only reason we have a prayer of seeing Star Trek
back on TV/streaming to begin with. He makes visual/action movies because that's how tentpole movies are nowadays. He's just doing what works. On TV/streaming, whoever takes over would do what works for that medium. Even if it's still Abrams or maybe Bob Orci in charge, the results would be very different.
