Now don't that just put a bee in my gorram bonnet. Those 14 episodes of Firefly
are better than TOS and every other Star Trek
television show combined. Overall, TWOK is probably a better movie than Serenity
; the rest of the movies (yes, Terry, even First Contact
) are mediocre at best. And pandering too much to fans is exactly why the Star Trek
franchise has been stuck in neutral for nigh on twenty of those forty-plus years. IMHO, of course. Furthermore, if all of this alternate-timeline business turns out to be true, you can all rest assured that this movie will be a reboot. A clever one that incorporates existing canon as a jumping-off point, but a reboot nonetheless. J.J. & Co. are just savvy enough to know that labeling it as such would almost certainly be the kiss of death for them with all the canon-obsessed Trekkies. Again, IMHO.
