Do you have any evidence that the whacky ideas of Trek can be attributed to him specifically ?

I think Orci and Kurzman balance him. He seems to come up with all the whack ideas, and they rein him in.
And then mess it up themselves.

Re: I've started hating the word "rehash"...

For the next movie, I think they should have somebody steal the Enterprise and take it to the center of the galaxy. If they are going to rehash, at least rehash a crappy movie and make it better.

The poor plot of Prometheus can largely be blamed on him.
That's not exactly true. Part of the plot of Prometheus was from Dan O'Bannon's original draft of ALIEN. Some of which also was used in the movie Lifeforce.

Re: I've started hating the word "rehash"...

I think Q did well with Picard and Janeway because they were stuffy and 'proper'.

nuKirk would probably like Q and where would the fun in that be?

Prime Kirk was pretty aggravated by Trelane. But true, the contrast would not be as interesting.

Re: I've started hating the word "rehash"...

I want an original idea from these guys in what is most likely their final Trek film before the reboot/rehash gets handed off to new producers and writers.

I'd rather them not bring up the Borg. I'm still Borgged out from Voyager.

Re: I've started hating the word "rehash"...

I want original too but I would bet good money against it happening.

I think we need a series for a chance of that.

No borg for me either, no more!

The Q idea interests me, though I can see the dynamic not working out as well as it did with Picard/Janeway as mentioned above.

Why "luckily" ? He seemed to be doing a good job with the other two.
Lindelof only worked on the script for STiD.

Nope, he's a sniper.

Waste of bandwidth really.

I think there needs to be a balance. Of course there are villians that can and should be used in the new movies, but I never want to feel like I'm being spoon fed a slightly tweaked story from a previous series.

Re: I've started hating the word "rehash"...

It's probably worth noting that Khan was a rehash when they brought him back in 1982. Didn't hurt the movie one bit. Would The Wrath of Khan have been a better movie with some brand-new threat? I doubt it.

Meanwhile, the nitpicker in me is obliged to point that that Lex Luthor did NOT appear in Superman III, which featured entirely new villains. Didn't help that movie one bit.
