Re: Abrams: Star Wars AND Star Trek

As I recall, "Measure of a Man" was the first episode that really blew me away.

To be fair, "Dirty Laundry" is my #2 all-time favorite song, but that's neither here nor there.

Same. But it and "Q Who?" are really the only standouts of the season IMO.

While there was nothing in the first season that was equally as good, there were several more episodes I'd rate as "better than average" than season two. If that makes sense.

Besides The Measure of a Man and Q Who, The Emissary was a definite TNG season two stand out. I also found Unnatural Selection, Loud As a Whisper, and Peak Performance to stand out.

Re: Abrams: Star Wars AND Star Trek

"The Big Goodbye" and "Conspiracy" were two of my favorites from the first year. Roddenberry liked Torme, which made him kind of a marked man in certain quarters.

Re: Abrams: Star Wars AND Star Trek

It makes perfect sense for Abrams to move on to Star Wars. Historical fact, Star Wars has always brought in more money than Trek. Sure he's gonna say all the right things about how he can remain dedicated to both. That's smart and he's not burning a bridge that he doesn't have to. But if it comes where he has to choose, the money is with Star Wars. Plain and simple.

As for what it means to the Star Trek franchise? Well, why should Abrams care about that. He flat out said he wasn't a Star Trek fan before he made ST09, so if the renewed interest his movies generated crashes and burns, what does he care? He's got a great gig either way.

Except he does care if not for any other reason than he's a professional. But beyond that, his name is forever attached, so anyone with half an ounce of common sense knows he has some degree of personal pride involved to ensure it continues to be a success.

Not only that, but his company is still producing the third Trek installment. There's still reputation at stake.

Re: Abrams: Star Wars AND Star Trek

Exactly so.

Abrams doesn't seem to be personally competitive with other filmmakers, but if Into Darkness exceeds the success of his first Star Trek movie as greatly as Hollywood people talking to the press seem to be assuming it will then his little trilogy here gets into pretty rarefied territory. He doesn't want to be the guy who fumbled his third movie.
