    Probably won't be this year or next, though, if I'm reading this right.

    JJ is an Enterprise era Vulcan?

    Brings a whole new meaning to him blowing up Vulcan in the ST '09 :eek:

    Why do you think he erased everything except Enterprise from our beloved canon?

    Well, with Levar and JJ, there's only one of them I like.

    And it's funny how some fans are okay when Levar slammed Insurrection and Nemesis, but get annoyed when slamming JJ. Don't see what makes JJ untouchable.

    He's not, and no-one is saying or implying that he is. Burton is right when he says Insurrection and Nemesis are weak films. He's talking nonsense when he says TNG is 'negated' by ST09. It's not complicated.

    I don't think anyone's saying he isn't entitled to be critical of Abrams or ST09. But this particular criticism just isn't valid. He keeps talking as if Abrams made TNG go away. He didn't.

    To tell the gospel truth, when or if the time is ever ripe and TOS-Trek takes off as a movie franchise (maybe even with recasted characters), who's to say a new Trek TV show couldn't be a reboot of TNG? I'd be down with that. In my opinion, it'd be a better idea than yet another "new" (but really derivative) version of Trek joining the franchise.

    He only means that his opportunity to make pointless guest appearances contacting Janeway (I mean nuKirk) has been negated, not the whole of TNG.

    At the very least, Abrams never made up stories and then used that to slam people in the press. Abrams got you beat once again Geordi....

    The idea of rebooting TNG makes me shudder.....just make a new series, and stop rehashing stuff over and over and over. And people ask me why I stopped watching mainstream TV or go to the films anymore since it's all nothing but remake, remake, remake. I can just picture whatever hack they hire to make it hire someone like Vin Diesel as Picard or Colin Ferrel as Riker......~shudders~ :wtf:

    Burton doesn't really appear to know what he's talking about.

    Generations was better than JJTrek.

    So was Insurrection.

    There, I said it.

    Wow, that someone would waste hours and hours writing that is pretty pathetic.
