|"I'm what Star Trek has become, Captain Kirk..."|
The writer makes some valid points about changing times, characterizations, and myth; in regards to Star Trek. I have not seen the film, and have no plans to, but what he says makes sense and "rings true".
To be honest, J.J. "Kid Dyno-mite!" Abrams strikes me as being a fairly simple fellow; not stupid in the conventional sense, obviously not, he has his gifts, but not the man that should be helming and re-gearing a property known for its subtleties and depth beyond "that spaceship blowed up real good".
