ROFLMAO...OMG....and I thought the Marshak & Culbreath books were horrible.

As someone who, as far as I know, never got a story on Smith's second read pile...
Seriously? I find that hard to believe. You're a published author now. Wow. I guess it is true then that sometimes it just doesn't work with one editor (or doesn't fit a theme, etc.).

I miss that contest...was getting closer each year...and it was so much fun to write short Trek stories.

It didn't get printed. The competition was too stiff.

Re: If STID was a SNW submission... (SPOILERS)

IIRC, Abrams PROMISED us there would be no Khan in this movie. What good are you if you have to lie to people to get them to see your movie?

And?

It was just marketing to pique the interest of movie-goers. Seems like it might have backfired on him though.

IIRC, the only emphatic denial was a Tweet by Simon Pegg, "It's not Khan" - at about the same time as Karl Urban mentioned Cumberbatch's "Gary Mitchell", which he used as a euphemism for villain-who-may-not-be-a-villain.

When did JJ promise?

It did backfire on him with me. I have said loud and often that I refuse to give Abrams a dime if he reboots an episode, especially if he brought back Khan.

I get that he rebooted the series. I applaud him for that. But why retell an old story?

And JD, I assume you have a copy of Star Trek II lying around. Could you go look at it before you spell it "Kahn" again, please?
