    I love how thanks to JJ Abrams, Star Trek fansites are slowly feeling more like Star Wars fansites. I’ve been saying since the first JJ-Trek the man wanted Star Wars to conquer Star Trek. Looks like mission accomplished!

    My creative solution to one of the world’s biggest problems is for this shithead to retire from moviemaking.

    So interesting to find a Star Trek news site posting this piece of news that mentions Star Trek nowhere.

  • Guest

    He’s associated with the last two Star Trek films and it’s not really a stretch to think that Star Trek fans might also be interested in Star Wars news.

  • TBonzie

    Exactly.

    Sorry, Star Wars sites are only a click away and I wouldn’t expect a site named WarsToday to feature any Star Trek news. With all due respect, if you are that hard up for Trek-related articles, you’ll find plenty of interesting sources among various Trek blog sites. You might even try highlighting interesting thread discussions taking place in the TrekBBS forums.

  • Milo

    Fully agreed! Could not have said it better myself! Keep Star Trek for Star Trek and get rid of the Star Wars on here!

  • Guest

    It’s also not hard to scroll past an article that doesn’t interest you.

    And it’s also not hard to click to a Star Wars site – facility is not the issue here. It is not difficult for someone who is interested in both to bookmark links to their respective fan sites. There is no lack of news sources for Star Wars, especially with a new movie in production. There are relatively far fewer sites which focus on Star Trek so when I go a site named TrekToday, I expect to read about Trek – today.

    Personally, I find Star Wars to be a space fantasy saga and the antithesis of what Star Trek has tried to be at its best – SCIENCE fiction. One has inspired generations of scientists, where the other has inspired people to prance around with magic swords. If one must post non-Trek related articles, I’d much rather see science-related articles posted here.
