Re: How Much Does JJ Abrams Know About Star Trek

There's a line from The Music Man about " knowing the territory ". Robert Wise didn't know it;Nicholas Meyer did. Does Abrams? I think he has a limited understanding of Trek, akin to someone who has just learned a new language, but hasn't spoken it their whole life
IIRC, Nick Meyer knew next to nothing about Star Trek and was not a fan of the show before getting the job to direct TWOK.
