I agree to an extent. I am a Star Wars fan as well. I wasn't impressed with episode 1. Ep2 was a little better. And Ep3 was killer. Of course the original trilogy can never be equaled by any newer incarnation of Wars. However, Wars and Trek are technically of two different genres. Trek is Science Fiction while Wars is Science Fantasy. The two are almost like oil and water. They shouldn't mix. Abrams has attempted to inject way too much Star Wars into Star Trek and has thus destroyed what Star Trek is. He has diluted Trek's uniqueness by making it just another generic action/adventure/stuff go boom flick for the short attention span generation. And that makes me very angry. And sad.

I Am Zim, do you have an account on StarTrek.com? Many anti-Abrams Trek, Trek fans on that message board.
Ah. Forgot about Jar Ja...er...Keesner
I do hate that little munchkin. And I do have an account at StarTrek.com, I just haven't been there is quite some time.
