In the interview he talks predominantly about TOS and how it influenced him. What also comes through (while being diplomatic about it) is that he's not a fan of JJtrek or much of TOS-R.

I'll buy him a drink if I ever meet him because I'm not either.

Re: Doug Drexler on Star Trek...

I think Drexler's work on Star Trek Continues pretty much illustrates what he thinks enhanced TOS f/x should look like. His Enterprise looks really sharp while maintaining TOS' overall aesthetic. His f/x don't jar you out of the story by looking like something from a totally different production from the live action segments.

I read his cgi Enterprise was scaled at about 11ft. as opposed to trying to make a 900 and something foot cgi ship in order to recreate what the original ship looked like on TOS in tandem with the same lenses and similar lighting. He even has his cgi model move like the original right down to touches of subtle camera shake.

I'd like to buy him a drink also. For the same reasons. But also because I know he has Martin the Martian's spaceship (a replica) in his garage.

Love that Doug, his lifelong Trek fandom combined with his actual Trek production work is what makes him such a great Trek resource

In the interview he states he doesn't care for what Abrams is doing based on what he saw in ST09. He also says that he hasn't yet seen STID and he'd probably eventually see it on video or something to that effect. He doesn't seem eager to see it.

It has more depth, so he might take a liking to it.
