Re: How Much Does JJ Abrams Know About Star Trek

I believe in that a director needs to delve into this in order to deliver a coherent film. Which is probably why my favorite films are those where the director also wrote or co-wrote the script.

If you direct a real world drama, you usually as a director also get to know the subject matter, otherwise you can't direct a proper film. And there's enough material in the Star Trek universe (and a lot of other fictional universes) to be able to treat it like it was a real world drama.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
