true but there are some people in this forum that didn’t mind a new take on it, and even people who like ENT, VOY, DS9, and TNG. to see from every post from the same handful of people saying i hate this because it’s not TOS, it gets old, and discourages people from participating in this forum discussion, which is supposed to be all era’s of trek.
I like NG- even DS9 and some Voyager. I can accept that the NX-01 existed, but I have problems with some of the things they did.
The problem most of us have with Abrams, is that he didn’t stick to his proposed plan. He said he wanted to create an altered timeline. OKay, fine. But he changed too many things for that explanation to work. He filmed an alternate universe and called it an altered timeline- big difference between the two.
He pretty much did a bait and switch. And changing a timeline does not change locations of planets, either.
And I seriously can not believe that the “Enterprise” we saw, as white and fancy as it was outside, as well as the halls, the bridge and all that…...has engineering the size of a football field and with mazes of pipes, cement floors and cinder block walls…..if he would have used, instead, what was shown in the concept art, showing the horizontal warp core, and all the fancy computers and whatnot, giving a more TMP/TNG type thing, I would be less aggressive on JJ, but instead he used a beer factory, and did a lazy job in trying to disguise that…..the same idea was used in the original ” V “, and it looked just as bad in 1983, JJ had no excuse for that. Add to that his fetish for using lens flares…...I don’t care if that is what he considers ‘artistic’, to me, that’s just watching a bad home video on a 20 year old camcorder. And making James Kirk more like a James Dean wannabe rebel, and Spock a poster child for an emo rock band, that’s also bad…...but this is the same guy who made “LOST”. Is it any wonder James Cawley, whom I considered someone who’s more qualified to make a Trek episode or movie, and at least he’s a dedicated Star Trek fan, unlike JJ who said he never even liked Star Trek to begin with. George Lucas is already alienating the fans of his films since 1997, JJ appears to want to alienate long time fans of Trek.
To me, JJ Trek is Trek in title only.
