"Reading Rainbow" could feature IDW's "Countdown" #4, which shows Ambassador Picard, Worf and Captain Data continuing to exist after Spock disappeared into the black hole.

Time to bump this thread. LeVar Burton has given another interview, this time calling Abrams "egocentric and immature" for violating Star Trek canon.

Read the delightfully titled "Levar Burton Calls Bullshit on JJ Abrams" here.

"There's 'breaking the canon,' which he did (by re-inventing Star Trek's timeline)."
Yeah, you're STILL NOT GETTING IT.

Stick to BBT guest spots and shut the fuck up.

I wouldn't be suprised if Burton's source is Robert Meyer Burnett, ranting and raving about JJ during the filming of the TNG-R bonus features.

The idea that a movie script "erases" 605 television episodes and 10 movies was ridiculously stupid in 2009 and it's still stupid in 2013. Newsflash: NONE of it is real. Really, the argument is sick and only serves to further the assumptions that people have made in the past that "Trekkies" can't distinguish fantasy from reality. No movie script or television script can erase jack squat because they are all fictional stories that were all penned from inside our universe.

People shouldn't still have to point out that their DVDs haven't vanished into a temporal vortex, but here we are.

That's not the point. The point is that even in the internal continuity of the imagined universe ( or multiverse ), nothing was erased.

And I guess to me -- that really doesn't matter either. For example -- I really don't need a black hole/red matter subplot to deal with the fact that Gilligan's Island and Law & Order are separate universes that don't erase each other. I see absolutely no difference between that and the relationship between Star Trek '09 and the rest of Trekdom, red matter subplot or not. They're stories.

I'm inclined to file yawps re: vague/unspecified "things" coming out of Abrams' "camp" right next to character rumors and plot-detail leaks citing nameless "informed sources" and the like.

They need to get Shatner back on the media shit-stirring detail; he's just better at it, while Levar comes off sounding a little... I don't know... defensive?

A little more than defensive. He has brought up JJ and the 2009 movie a few times in interviews and has almost always been critical of it in some way. That's his right of course but this recent interview seems like mud slinging. Talking about "things he heard" that no one else has and then attacking that really isn't doing him any favors at all. It's lacking tact. Even if it's true he is showing himself in a worse light.

Don't be delusional, there will never be another TNG film.
I have to wonder how much of the angst against "new Trek," from the old Trek actors is because their "stock," and thus earning ability is being diminished at Trek conventions - book signings - etc with the popularity of JJ's Trek? Every new ittiration of Trek I'd imagine makes former Trek stars less significant and less bankable.
Well, the entire TNG cast (minus Wil Wheaton) are appearing in Toronto this weekend, and a lot of people on my Facebook friendlist are excited about it.

(Wil's likely not going to be there for two reasons: one, we had him as a guest at Polaris just eight months ago, and two, scuttlebutt has it that he doesn't like the guy who puts on this particular show - which is not a fan-run convention, but rather a for-profit show.)

If I remember, I'll pop back into this thread next week and let you know what kind of reception they got. But I'm willing to bet right now that it will be enthusiastic.
