    As a Trek fan since childhood, I was shocked at the lack of creativity in Into Darkness. The original Rodenberry wrote modern day fables and mystery plays, this was a rehash of an old story (with a twist)

    To begin with, actors and directors a part of the mix, and producer pull it all together...

    Otherwise, it ain't on the page, it ain't on the stage...

    Yes, indeed, Gene Roddenberry created STAR TREK, but most (if not all) of those memorable stories were based on what other writers (not Gene) turned into screenplays, then were made into TV series episodes, and if Abrams came up with was a rehashing of some episode, nothing new or news about that. to me...

    Just curious why you brought that up to begin with on this black issues oriented website....

    Please accept my apology...

    Nothing was intended or meant, other than air my opinions about a producer of a TV series, and how it all works...This too was being directed at black folk here in general etc.

    FYI
