Yes, because all the great writers we know these days were never unknown. They were born with the stats greatbigasswriter tattoed on their heads.

FFS, not a word on paper yet, and some people are already asuming it's gonna suck because of two writers we've never heard about. Has it occured to anyone that perhaps this is the result of two months of heavy back and forth pitching of ideas, to which Abrams and co said 'holy shit, you guys have some amazing talent that we need to exploit?'.

Just because we haven't heard of them before, doesn't mean they're bad.....
People have to have something to bitch about for the next three years. They don't have experience people bitch, they have experience people bitch about what they've already been involved with.

I'm all for giving new people a chance. Just wish TPTB would've picked me.
Oh please no. If your favorite episodes of TOS and STNG are any indication, I don't want you anywhere near a script.

I do however, agree with your bitching appraisal.

I'm having flashbacks to the QUINTO'S SPOCK SHOULD BE CONSTANTLY SHOUTING thread (and who knew back then that he'd actually have one of the most cringe worthy shouts in the whole Trekverse?)

I don't read comic books, if that gives you any idea. I like a consistent world in which I can invest fully and be confident that it will commit to following its own rules for the duration. Changing the reality or rules of your own universe reminds me of an unimaginative cheating spouse with commitment issues. From what I hear, Hollywood is full of those so I guess it fits.
The rules of Star Trek have been changing constantly throughout all the series and movies. We fans just pretend they all represent a consistent and coherent universe. They don't, and never did.

If anyone out there actually believes Trek had a consistent world prior to the Abrams movies needs a reality check. Voyager's 75-year galaxy-crossing journey is a complete joke when TOS, TAS and STV hopped from Earth to the edge of the galaxy and back to earth and then to the centre a couple of times.

And the there's TMP, which completely reimagined the look of Star Trek under the flimsy guise of an Enterprise refit. Sure, that explains it ...

Sure, you're allowed to make fun of typos here. But we don't tolerate using zeroes to spell words.

I suppose in this day in and age who you tag with writing credit is more a formality than anything. The Director, the marketers, the execs, and the actors are going to end up changing it so much it'll barely resemble whatever the original draft was. Maybe that's why Orci's passed it off to two of his pals -- make them make the first draft to bounce off of.

Star Trek has never stuck to such a commitment.

Star Trek is full of continuity issues of its own.

Check out the videos in King Daniel Into Darkness's signature (someone posting in this very thread!):

No Star Trek series is immune. You might have fun seeing which ones you agree with, which ones you can explain away, which ones are excusable, etc. I do!

By the way, is it really necessary to take a swipe at Hollywood spouses???

Um... okay. But suppose I don't want to make something new; I want to make Star Trek. Your argument makes no sense.
