He only means that his opportunity to make pointless guest appearances contacting Janeway (I mean nuKirk) has been negated, not the whole of TNG.

At the very least, Abrams never made up stories and then used that to slam people in the press. Abrams got you beat once again Geordi....

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.
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.
The idea of rebooting TNG makes me shudder.....just make a new series, and stop rehashing stuff over and over and over. And people ask me why I stopped watching mainstream TV or go to the films anymore since it's all nothing but remake, remake, remake. I can just picture whatever hack they hire to make it hire someone like Vin Diesel as Picard or Colin Ferrel as Riker......~shudders~

Burton doesn't really appear to know what he's talking about.

Generations was better than JJTrek.

So was Insurrection.

Wow, that someone would waste hours and hours writing that is pretty pathetic.

You only say that because you didn't read it.
I hope he'll write another for the next Trek movie. It was so amusing.

I don't care that they erased the original timeline, as long as Sulu is still gay.

Re: Levar Burton aka Geordi La Forge criticizes Star Trek 2009

Didn't get past the second sentence:

Some Lame-o wrote:
The first 15 seconds of beautiful effects of the USS Kelvin in space, include some nice communication chatter that includes “gravitational” readings going crazy and “it” looks like a lightning storm. First, lightning storms do not cause gravitational anything so crazy readings are not what “looks” like a lightning storm, at all.
Is that about the standard? The actual line is "Our gravitational readings are going crazy - you should see this. It looks like a lightning storm." There's no indication that the person speaking believes that "it" looks like a lightning storm because of the readings. Rather, they think it looks like a lightning storm because it, y'know, looks like a lightning storm, and by the way, their gravitational readings are going cray-cray, WTF is this thing anyway?

And yeah, lightning storms don't cause "crazy" gravitational readings. This thing does, though, and it looks like a lightning storm. Which is different from it being a lightning storm. And saying that it "looks like" a lightning storm is different from saying that it appears to be a lightning storm.

Those two sentences are about all I need. Whoever wrote that crap collected their ticket, bought their popcorn and took their seat all with a sneer on their face, eagerly anticipating their own hatred of the film. And surprise, surprise - they got what they wanted.

Generations, definitely yes. Insurrection, not so much. Though I give it props for not having any lens flares.

lol I had a good laugh over this.

Generations was an abomination and a poor excuse to get both Kirk and Picard on screen together. The writers must have had it in for Gene when they decided to make a movie where Kirk dies. It was literal Character Assassination.

I kinda liked Insurrection though, but I still think JJTrek is superior to both films. I'm a TOS trekkie, never really got into post TOS stuff.
