I think the challenge for JJ is trying to stay involved at the director level for both franchises. Since he is committed to doing SW Ep 7 with a release date of 2015 or 2016, not sure how easy it will be to fit in ST 13 unless it moves to 2017, which I guess is more realistic that I thought given the 4 year span between ST 11 and ST 12. Here's keeping my fingers crossed...

I thought the alternate timeline/universe reboot of ST was well done. Since it is a splinter universe, adherence to lore is less of an issue than say First contact killing the borg queen, as opposed to shatner's book (the return) where they destroy the central node in the delta quadrant not long chronologically after kirk is killed (and reanimated by a romulan/borg alliance) at the end of Generations.

I'll give JJ a chance to do it justice, it can't be any worse in theory than lucas selling the SW franchise to Disney with plans to make ep 7-9...

I did read that is still going to produce any future ST movie (and hopefully a TV show down the road)! He's hot property in Hollywood these days, so I am all for taking advantage of the opportunities he is being presented.

As a big fan of both, I am excited---hoping he can revive Star Wars to more of the original feeling---but I do see your point---but I think Gene would just be glad to see that Science Fiction is alive and well and making us think about outer space- --and I think he would have approved of the new Star Trek cast and how they carried out that adventure---hoping the newest one lives up to that.
But I know a lot will think I am nuts---but I think JarJar Binks was the best thing to come out of the newest Star Wars movies----he amuses me---and love how 3CPO and R2D2 were included

Gene Roddenberry must be rolling over in his grave.
Star Trek always had an optimistic view of the future.
JJ isn't going to adhere to Trek lore, and I dread the future movies.
I know a lot of people love both franchises, but for me, the first Star Wars Movie - A New Hope - is the ONLY one worth multiple watching, and George Lucas' prequels really turned me off.
