For the record I wasn't bitching, just surprised.

This actually reminds me of the writing gang for TVH. Similarly a writing duo with no previous credits was hired to work on the script for that movie, and it turned out fine (one of my favorite trek movies). Though I suspect Nick Meyer did most of the writing, as will probably be the case here with Orci.
Didn't Nick Meyer write the entire second act?

I'd rather have Lindelof than Orci. Lindelof did some good stuff on LOST. I've never seen anything Orci has ever written that I thought was any good.

There's no such thing. Rick Berman's version of Star Trek is no more or less valid than JJ Abrams' version of Star Trek.

If enough of their audience say the same thing, do you think the producers, director and writers would listen to them? Or just go ahead with what they deign to give them? Sadly, I am sure of the latter. They know better what's good for the audience than the audience themselves.
I've been watching Trek since before TNG, and though I'm not a fan of Abrams movies, the very last thing I want is to go back to Berman Trek. I can see it now, yet another spinoff series featuring Captain Jebediah Nobodygivesash*t of the U.S.S. Continuity Porn. We can call it, Star Trek: Beating a Dead Horse. Screw that. Give me Kirk, Spock, the Enterprise, and a good reboot which keeps these characters alive and relevant. Rick Berman's version of Star Trek was merely one version; it had its day, but that day is done. Thank God.

I usually stay out of this forum, and this thread is a reason why. Anyone who states they have a preference for the prime universe is attacked or mocked.

Because 99% of the time (in my oh-so-scientific estimation), prime Trek actually means Rick Berman's Trek, with the implication that Berman's Trek is somehow more "real" than any other version. Rick Berman's Trek is no more or less valid than any other version of Star Trek, including Abrams' version.

This isn't a discussion about nuclear disarmament that is going to have real world ramifications. Its a bunch do people having fun discussing Star Trek. Various factions of fandom have been sniping at each other for nearly fifty-years, it is part of the fun.

It's TOS vs. TNG all over again.

Yeah, but you'd lose the Star Wars blasters "PEW PEW PEW" in favor of "PEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWW".

Lol, not just that. Just about anyone who doesn't like the new films is attacked or mocked.

Not really, but their positions/opinions/arguments may be - there's no rule against that.

LoL, nope, but if you repeat that often enough in forums which are not this one, someone might buy it.

In my time in fandom I've seen TOS fans mock fans who liked TAS, TOS fans mock those who liked TMP, ST II fans mock fans who liked TMP, TOS fans mock fans who liked ST IV, TOS and TNG fans mock each other... and so on.

I like and watch all Trek, but I still have my preferences. I'll defend the new movies if I hear someone slamming them. If that's "attacking" or "mocking" so be it.
