So that article is basically saying that the non-stop action and the reduction in "Trekkiness" (I haven't seen the movie, so this is hearsay) is because of the studio listening to audience gripes about Trek in global market polls and wanting TDK numbers for this movie?
Yes. They want to make a movie that people will actually like and will justify them spending $10.00 on a ticket, unlike the old guard.
LOL. Syfy is showing Generations now, then Insurrection, then Nemesis.
I am just sitting here, shaking my head at Syfy. Some programmer in there must, MUST have a seriously twisted sense of humor. If ever there were a bigger chasm between what was needed and what we got during those TNG-era-movie years... this was pretty much it.
