I need to make a comment before I log back out for a real long time.
The reason why Star Trek began to suck began with TNG. Some hack job liberal writers got together and began to spew their evangelical message with all the fervor of fundamentalists. Sure, Rick Berman has his share of the blame, but the writers were the ones who ultimately burned the ship. It got to be too preachy.
If you look back at the list of fan favorite episodes, none of them had a moral message. Best of Both Worlds? All Good Things? Those were when Star Trek was fun. DS9 understood this, as did the last season of ENT. Voyager never did, and certainly the latter half of TNG didn't.
JJ Abrams understands this and has always understanded this in his other work.
I don't give a damn if most of the Trekkers don't like the new Star Trek. Go watch your TNG, you who were in your twenties and thirties when TNG came on. Give those of us who grew up with Star Trek from a young age something cool again.
That is all.
