Grateful it revived a dead franchise. Made it relevant again.
Well, I really like ENT S4 and think it resembles solid Star Trek a lot more than STID does.

Popcorn shlock with a fucking white Khan is hardly the best we can do? Are we that defeated?
No. But I'd rather have some new Trek with a fun, new, energetic style that has people all over the world actually EXCITED again than to reminisce over material that went off the air years ago.

Look, I've been a Trek fan for 3/4ths of my life. I appreciate the old stuff as much as anyone. But it's the past, and to be perfectly honest, a lot of it was crap back then, too. It's nice to have new Trek. REVIVED Trek. Can't we just be grateful of that?

Which was so much worse than a Mexican Khan who wore make-up to make his skin seem darker the first time we saw him and was pretty pale and surrounded by blond hair, blue eyed followers the second time we saw him.

Some folks seen desperate to have something to complain about.

I just.. can't be that defeated. I can't be grateful that we just get any old shit with the Star Trek name plastered on it.

It's a non-issue anyway. I'm British, and the idea of that vile toad setting foot on the same island as me makes me feel physically sick, but I think he's a pretty perfect fit for Star Wars so can't see him leaving the project.

He's just a guy who makes movies. Its not like he's carrying the plague or making a play for the throne.

Don't carelessly dump him on us like he's some toxic waste product. Even if that is a perfectly valid description of him.

He's Aegon Targaryen come again, with his two sisters in destruction Orci and Kurtzman.

I will not bow.

Freys always bow and hold a grudge.

If the rumours on the IGN front page are true.

apparently Abrahms as thrown a hissy fit over Star Wars being shot in the UK, and wanted production moved to L.A so he could be near his family. WHAT!

Anyway they rightfully told him that wasn't happening and so now he might quit Star Wars and just stick with Trek.

Worst thing that can happen imo, he's perfect for Star Wars. He did good with Star Trek 09, Into Darkness was passable but for the next one I want someone who can write an intelligent story, something that makes you think.
1. The guy's name is Abrams. J.J. Abrams. If you're going to critique the man, at least spell his name correctly.

2. This should have been posted in the Trek XI+ forum.

3. How dare he want to be near his family. What an utter bastard.

4. He didn't write the stories. He just directed the movies. Damon Lindelof and Roberto Orci wrote the stories. He's also not going to write the stories for the Star Wars sequels. Someone else is going to do that. So you saying that Abrams can't write an intelligent story or something that makes you think is completely moot.

5. What the JJ-bashers don't seem to ever get is that it doesn't matter whether anyone personally likes him or not, or likes his movies or not. He and his crew were personally responsible for bringing Star Trek back into popularity again no matter what kind of intelligent or non-intelligent story his writers came up with. Thanks to these films, there's the best chance ever that CBS will bring back Trek to television one day. That would have never happened without these movies, or at least not in quite some time.

Re: Terrible News, Abrahms might be quitting Star Wars to return to Tr

If this is true, good for Abrams. I respect the guy for wanting to be near his family. I don't like his Star Trek, but I can respect the man for picking his family over a boat load of cash.

Again, if there's any truth to this rumor.
