    "Gene's Vision" was $$$, women and sex, the order in which he got any of them was not important.

    He doesn't know the ultra secret extra special super duper handshake. The one that only real Star Trek directors get.

    Isn't that what Harve Bennette (sp) did when they were trying to come up with ideals for Star Trek II? TWOK was more happy accident than a deliberate choice; Bennette happening to think Khan would make a great returning villain.

    And boy was Bennett right about that. You don't have to be a lifelong fan to make a good franchise movie, that's an absurd argument to make. WOK is exhibit A of that fact. You need to be a competent director and do research to understand the material. Bennett, Meyer, and JJ all did this, and I'm certain that Wyatt would as well.

    Fans only seem to ruin and wreck it. See John Logan and Bob Orci, two self-proclaimed fans writing the worst Trek scripts.

    Yes (Logan) and no (Orci). The scripts to Generations, The Final Frontier and Insurrection, at the least, are worse.

    I'd add Nemesis to that list. The entire plot was one gigantic plot hole and the villains motives made no freaking sense.

    I thought Logan wrote Nemesis. That's why I didn't include it on the list.
