Funny how the people actually involved in Star Trek can embrace something new but the hardcore canons would rather just dwell on the past.

That may be because actors have to do new things all the time to earn their paychecks and so they see the merits of reinvention. Unless you're very lucky, you cannot live simply on royalties. This gives you a unique perspective on things.

Shakespeare has been done a million times, and each time, it's slightly different.

You know another good example is Madonna, the woman constantly reinvented herself throughout the 80's and 90's and her fans loved her for it. But I bet if Abrams went to a convention right now some overzealous basement boy would want to give him a fat lip.

It'd never happen. Pine and Quinto would play keep-away with his inhaler.

Take THAT Magnum and you other "purists"! Haven't seen you haters around lately? Still licking your wounds and thinking Paramount will fire JJ for delivering the masses as $250 million plus movie and just decide to "hire" Nimoy and Nic Meyers to "fix things" and bring us back to that dead, boring Bermanverse? Eat the crow!

Nice words from Stewart - it seems reasonable that most of the cast of the other shows are keeping a respectful distance from getting heavily involved in any of the squabbling over the film.

As it should be.

Don't get me wrong.... I sorely miss TNG. I wish the series would have gone on longer. I would have even welcome one more NG movie. ANd still would, actually. Anybody else notice tha in the Countdown comic, our fav android was called "Data: and not "b4"? That was a major beef for me and "Nemesis". They "killed" Data yet he conveniently had a whole new body to "download" into? Terrible gimmick.
