Thankfully JCVD hasn't had a movie that was a hit in many, many years!!

Was it? I thought it was the Farragut - that obviously being a reference to TOS and Kirk's career in the original timeline.

That was why it seemed to stick in my head.

I agree. JJA is a great director, definitely one of the big ones. The problems of this movie lie in the script, not in the wonderful execution.

OK, I have to correct myself here and apologize to Geek King. I just re watched the scene and it really isn't clear where she gets assigned. If she got on Enterprise, I felt as if we would see her again. I THOUGHT I heard "Gaila, USS Antares", but it was kind of muddled. Would like to see this movie with subs.

BTW, this seems to be going on in 2 threads, this one and "Sulu saved the Enterprise". Maybe a new one should be started about Gaila's fate, plus we're off topic now.

I really had no idea Gaila's fate caused such a stir.

You're right.
But it was his movie. He takes ownership of the complete film.
I have to believe he approved it just like he approved the Enterprise and everything else about the film. That's why I don't think it's wrong to call it the Abramprise or an Abrams film.

Nicolaus owned his film. He had Paramount to work with, he had more tie down and leases than Abrams and he did a better job...but Abrams' look is more exciting.
