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.
"I just came from a conference in San Francisco with Advanced Micro Devices, and they're working on technology towards building a holodeck."

I wish they would work faster on that.

Also, the holodeck came from the animated Star Trek episode "The Practical Joker" way back in 1974 and not The Next Generation. So there

Burton:
There's 'breaking the canon,' which he did (by re-inventing Star Trek's timeline). But there's also honouring the canon. And to pretend to be the only one is really egocentric and immature.
Well, Lavar, not to put to fine a point on it, but not being able to accept there is another one now is really egocentric and immature, too.

TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise all violated Trek canon. That's sort of why JJ had to do what he did.

If this interview is true, and Levar Burton's words aren't being twisted or taken out of context, all I can say is...Has he started taking drugs?

Seriously, even if, someone in JJ's Camp, or JJ himself wishes JJTrek to be the only one people remember, so what? Like that's really going to happen? I have a really tough time believing JJ has nothing better to do with his time, then to goaround spreadsing his intention of erasing all other Trek, especially since that is impossible.

And this fool Robert Meyer Burnett, doesn't have a clue, the interview starts off with him blathering on about Serialized TV doesn't have A and B stories and 5 episodes??? Huh? Of course Serialized TV deals with A and B stories and 5 act episodes (The 5 acts are Commercial Breaks,DUH?) DS9, B5, Farscape, Walking Dead, NuBSG.... all follow this structure and are serialized (with the exception being DS9 was light on Serialization)

Probably won't be this year or next, though, if I'm reading this right.

JJ is an Enterprise era Vulcan?

Brings a whole new meaning to him blowing up Vulcan in the ST '09

Why do you think he erased everything except Enterprise from our beloved canon?

Well, with Levar and JJ, there's only one of them I like.

And it's funny how some fans are okay when Levar slammed Insurrection and Nemesis, but get annoyed when slamming JJ. Don't see what makes JJ untouchable.

He's not, and no-one is saying or implying that he is. Burton is right when he says Insurrection and Nemesis are weak films. He's talking nonsense when he says TNG is 'negated' by ST09. It's not complicated.

I don't think anyone's saying he isn't entitled to be critical of Abrams or ST09. But this particular criticism just isn't valid. He keeps talking as if Abrams made TNG go away. He didn't.

To tell the gospel truth, when or if the time is ever ripe and TOS-Trek takes off as a movie franchise (maybe even with recasted characters), who's to say a new Trek TV show couldn't be a reboot of TNG? I'd be down with that. In my opinion, it'd be a better idea than yet another "new" (but really derivative) version of Trek joining the franchise.
