Re: I Like Abrams

But from various interviews and anecdotes one red thread of what Gene Roddenberry actually wanted becomes clear: Less militaristic overtunes and more scientific exploration.

That was one of his criticisms of Franz Joseph's Technical Manual and one of his criticisms of how Nick Meyer handled things in TWOK (IIRC).

I think TNG is a good showcase of his philosophy against which to measure other Trek incarnations, IMHO.
