Trek gets new helmer

So. J.J. Abrams has the next Trek movie. Abrams of Lost, Alias, and MI3.

Considering all the great candidates who are also fans, and would treat the franchise with the groveling respect it deserves, this is pretty disappointing. It is slightly heartening that Paramount thinks enough of Trek to hand it to their current golden boy.

I could say that I’m disappointed enough that I’ll wait until the movie has been out a while before I go, but we all know that’s not true. I’ll see the previews and be head-over-heels, just like I always am. I’ll line up on opening night. Then, I’m sure, I’ll be crushed. Right now, I’m going to forget about it as much as possible until 2008, when the movie is scheduled for release.
