Re: how do people feel about robert orci and Kurtzmen returning?
I just feel like Kurtzman and Orci can't write good sci-fi but they can write excellent set pieces and great character dialogue & development. They just lack one piece of the puzzle imho and that might be addressed with an old-time Trek writer or perhaps run a script draft past the old writing team or something. They could provide invaluable insight and tidy the script up to the point that we have nothing to complain about in here!
The only TV writers I'd let near the new productions would be Roddenberry (circa 1966) or Gene L. Coon. Since they're currently unavailable, I'll stick with Orci and Kurtzman.
