He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
I am so upset with Abrams post new Trek II. On the other hand, I now feel confident he can do a decent Star Wars film.
This wasn’t the end of the interview, ya know. He went on to say that he’d come around to the philosophy, and tried to make a movie that drew from that to appeal to everybody.
Maybe this one is not what you wanted from a Star Trek movie, but dude there are PLENTY of heavy philosophy Star Trek movies already.
