Re: jj abrams not in 3rd star trek movie

Nonsense. The Trek job is Abrams's to keep or to turn down on his terms.

Anniversary nonsense appeals to hardcore fandoms. Paramount has already demonstrated that their business and creative decisions vis-a-vis Star Trek are no longer driven by that kind of pandering.

Moving away just a bit -for just a moment- from the specifics of this discussion, can you imagine being a kid who (potentially, possibly) grows up to make both Star Trek AND Star Wars movies? COOL!
JJ Abrams is quite obviously the Chosen One.

Besides, there's plenty of ways to celebrate fifty years of Trek without a movie. Me? I'll make a pizza dinner from scratch, pulling the pizza out of the oven with my Spock Vulcan Salute oven mitt. Then, I'll cut the pizza with my Enterprise pizza cutter. I'll open a couple of beers with my Enterprise bottle opener, which I'll drink out of my Captain Kirk "Star Trek" pint glass (the Spock one is for lesser occasions, McCoy is for mixed drinks, and Scotty is for, well, Scotch). If it needs it, I'll season the pizza with my Enterprise salt and pepper shakers.

I'll be doing all this in my gold tunic while wearing my gold command robe with my phaser in one pocket and my tricorder in the other. I'll have on my Spock ears as long as they're comfortable and stay on (don't want them falling into the pizza).

I will eat the pizza in front of the TV while watching my favorite TOS episodes while looking for continutity errors to rationalize in bed as I drift off to sleep that night.

A rich, full day. And I won't even miss that there's no new movie.

Can you do a midi-chlorian count with a tricorder?

Somehow I feel like this happens more regularly than just on Anniversary occasions... >_>

Nah. Only when the wife's out of town on business and the kids are at sleepovers at friends' houses. You know. Special occasions. "Me" time.

I think this is good news because now maybe paromunt can get a director that likes and is loyal to star trek to fill his spot
I'd just like to point out that The Wrath of Khan was produced and directed by two people who were not loyal to Trek's original vision, look, style, or storyline, and that movie is considered by the vast majority of fans and critics to be the best of the entire franchise.

Has anyone pointed out yet that "jj abrams not in" the first two Trek movies he directed, either?

And what does "loyalty to Star Trek" mean anyway? Do you have to swear an oath or something?
And a vow of celibacy. Although some of us are better at it than others.
