Seems like Nemesis, Insurrection and The Final Frontier are on the losing end, behind Galaxy Quest.

Are Baird, Frakes and Shatner now allowed to say "Fuck you"?
It's not a matter of whether they're allowed to or not - it's a free country, they can say pretty much anything they want. I don't think they ever had that reaction to fan feedback though. Granted with the advent of internet and social media, it's much easier for everyone to express their opinion, so those three probably never had such feedback smack them upside the head, but it still seems to be to be a poor reaction. One of the costs of fame and fortune is that your every word (and look) can instantly be sent out for everyone to hear (and see) with no chance for editing or retraction - once something is said, it can never be unsaid. Mr. Orci certainly does get to write the screenplays, and gets millions for it, but along with that, he's responsible for what he says, in a way most of us are not.
Life's full of little trade-offs
