First the observation about Abrams wasn't all that denigrating. Not nearly as nasty as "nerdrage" for example. I don't imagine for a moment the adult Abrams thinks like the adolescent Abrams. Nor can I conceive any way to read the post that way. Second, there was no "playing field" when Star Trek became popular. You guys are the ones who can't grasp the difference. Third, it is too soon to attribute staying power to Abrams' offerings.
