Broken Trek Counterpoint

The Hollywood Reporter has posted a response to that "Star Trek is Broken" piece I linked to a few days ago, and I figured I should relink it here in the interest of completeness. The gist of the article, by Mark Hughes, is that Trekkies need to get over themselves:
These films are a different kind of Star Trek -- they are big-screen versions of the original series, the pure space Western action-adventure that we haven't yet seen on the big screen because all the other films have moved so far away from that. Abrams' movies aren't trying to use the original series as a point of departure -- they are using it as their primary template.
Well, not sure how much I agree with that, but I'll leave it to you to determine where you fit on the continuum of not-caring.
