And yet, he didn't.

People really need to let this go.

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

You'd think Trek fans would have a better grasp of the whole "alternate timeline" thing.

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

Abrams was in part criticized for making Star Trek too much like Star Wars. It does not logically follow that he will ruin Wars too (unless you think he will make it too much like Trek...?)

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

^That's actually a pretty good point.
I'm a big fan of Abrams so if and at this point it's still a big if, he is doing SWVII I'm thrilled. At this point the only people I would be happier about would be Whedon or Speilberg, and I'm pretty sure those two have been 100% ruled out.

Star Trek has survived many different directors. Frankly, it's amazing that Star Trek still exists at all. I'm sure everything will work itself out. At least now Hollywood has an idea of what a new, successful Trek franchise can look like.
I just hope that Paramount doesn't cut the budget for Trek 3 in response.
Assuming STID makes a good profit and since Bad Robot and Abrams will still be involved in some way, why would they?
While it's different people, you'd have thought The Final Frontier would've had a bigger budget based on the financial success of the prior four films. Paramount may not let another director draw up a huge budget for a follow-up that isn't done by Abrams.

So what? STAR TREK is more than just its "continuity."

Time to move on . . .

Interesting news. Not sure what to think at the moment, but part of me likes this news, while other part of me wants to know who will direct the next trek movie?

I was much happier when I realized this five or six years ago.

Why couldn't Abrams do both, hypothetically?

There's no rule that says you have to commit yourself to one franchise exclusively. Or can't alterate between series.

Just saying.

Creative incest. Should Peter Jackson have directed Harry Potter films? Or should George Lucas have directed The Motion Picture back then?

Why not?

Directors go cross genre with franchises all the time.
