He makes a good point - desperate fanboys don't necessarily make the best directors. SW needs a fresh perspective.
Like Star Trek did with John Logan and Stuart Baird?

If we look at SW writers for example, it's a mixed bag.

Re: Impact on Star Trek as Disney reboot Star Wars.

One impact I hope it has on Trek is that we get more of the stuff, without again compromising quality, of course.

GR once spoke of the Galaxy being a big place with room for a lot of stories to be told and I agree. It is every bit as big as a galaxy far, far away so why not get on the ball and take more advantage of all those stories left to tell.

That other franchise is going to do that and so should Star Trek. If they continue to mosey along down the highway at such a leisurely pace they are likely to be left far, far behind.

Hey, it worked with Nicholas Meyer and Harve Bennett.

They learned a few lessons since then, assuming their contributions to the latest Bond film were of any significance (Logan as co-writer and Baird as chief film editor). Just sayin'.
