^I'll bet you $10.00 that JMS & Jackson wouldn't be getting half of the acid being spat at them as Abrams, Orci, & Kurtzman have had; fans would be saying how intelligent a Star Trek movie/TV show is.

To that end, I wouldn't mind seeing an adaptation of the novel The Galactic Whirlpool instead of another thriller for the third (and it seems last) movie. But, a thriller is what we'll be getting, it seems.

BTW, even socialists had a problem with the 2009 movie: Star Trek: Boldly going where no man has gone before, again
You underestimate the fannish mindset. Haters will rise to the top. Even now there are folks who shudder at the prospect of a JMS helmed Star Trek. (hey I'm one of them).

I haven't read the The Galactic Whirlpool in decades. Without clicking the link I don't even recall what its about. Though having clicked the link I see a role for Levar Burton, that might get him to shut up,
