I can see the trailer in my mind: This summer... HOOOOOOOONK! (fade to black) Annoying Foghorn Pictures presents... HOOOOOOOONK! (fade to black) a Star Wars sequel that might actually not suck that hard because... HOOOOOOOONK! (fade to black) George Lucas won't write the script. HOOOOOOOONK!

I wonder why they even bother.

We knew that when they announced Disney buying the franchise.

it takes all kind i suppose, because i thought it was a very entertaining movie.

then again i dont give a shit about star trek's history or whatever else "trekkies" care about.

i would say given the star trek reboot, jj abrams on star wars is a good thing. i mean it almost has to be lightyears more entertaining then the prequel junk.

It was not a Star Trek movie.
I have a bad feeling about this.

It rebooted the franchise successfully.
I thought it was great, but I don't echo the naysayers to be cool.

They took the worst parts of Star Trek and made it a movie.

Fortunately I rented it for free, so I didn't contribute. Sadly, it'll be the last new Trek thing I watch as long as this guy has control of the franchise. I ought to obtain Enterprise, ToS, TNG & DS9.

If you know your Trek - then you'll understand my statement.
