It's nice that he liked it and all but Rod Roddenberry really doesn't have any more insight into Star Trek than the rest of us do so it's really just another opinion.
I tend to agree. Doesn't he run Roddenberry Enterprises, making $$ off of his father's legacy?
Jerk, you mean like every other heir to a family business or Enterprise?

The kid's right. Abrams delivered the goods. And with a ton of style and class.
Oh, certainly the style.

personally, if i had a legacy, that's what i would want my kids to do. this could equally be seen as carrying on the family business.
Carrying on the family business is exactly what it is, in fact. Lincoln Enterprises (originally Star Trek Enterprises) was founded by Gene and Majel in 1967 and is now headed by Rod Roddenberry, operating via the Roddenberry.com website.

No, that doesn't lend his opinion of the movie that much more weight than the average person's, but in the past he's generally come out as a supporter of Star Trek projects because he actually likes them, rather than simply because it's more profitable for him. He's a fan with a somewhat unique perspective.
good for him.

I think a lot of people would wanna distance themselves from "that nerdy trek thing" but he is in it to carry on the legacy and pick up where his parents left off with the family business!

Glad to hear he liked it...but even if he hadn't, I wouldn't have cared in the slightest.

I liked it...and that's all that matters to me.

Cremation does make that rather tricky.

But then, neither do all those people who are just fans of Trek but it doesn't stop them from declaring with great authority: "This is not Gene's Trek!" "Roddenberry is rolling in his grave" etc.
Don't piss in my pants, little man. I'm not one of those people. I loved the movie. I don't even really have a gripe about Rod's opinion. My big thing is he's said again and again that he really didn't know jack about Trek until long after his dad died and now he's acting like he's the Pope of Trekdom and his blessing means something. I'm just saying his opinion is no more important than anyone else who wasn't involved with producing Trek. Shit, I've produced more Trek than he has and my contribution doesn't count for a damn thing in the big picture. The movie has my blessing if anyone cares and I hope they don't. I'd prefer everybody like the movie.
