Does Abrams not respect the Star Trek franchise?

He seems so bent on showing the ship being destroyed/ripped apart in each film.

He stated he only did Trek as a stepping stone to getting the Star Wars gig. which he did. job done.

Re: Does Abrams not respect the Star Trek franchise?

I think he took the franchise to a level that the new generation of viewers would appreciate. He is not of the body.

Part of Social Psychology is to not let people get too attached to your fictional creation. So they make Spock die, or tear the Enterprise apart, or some other thing for what they call "dramatic effect". But in reality it's about weaning you off of your favorite fantasy.

Re: Does Abrams not respect the Star Trek franchise?

They've all blown the ship up. TOS movies, and in the Next Gen movies and the Jar Jar Abrams movies.

I more upset with his destroying the original timeline and therefore nearly the entire universe of events.

And rogue Starfleet personnel are the bad guys in two consecutive movies. So Starfleet itself and the Federation is corrupt.

Re: Does Abrams not respect the Star Trek franchise?

Hint: He himself says he doesnt like Star Trek and rather wants to do Star Wars movies.

Which he is bad at, too.

Re: Does Abrams not respect the Star Trek franchise?

The original series had several episodes where illustrious figures from the federation turn out to be a disappointment to Kirk, either by having a demeanor being unworthy of their reputed accomplishments, having let their reputation get to their heads, or just being plain corrupt.
