Give the next Star Trek movie to Simon Pegg!
OMG, Simon Pegg & his group of friends & colleagues writing the next movie? We’d get Harvey Mudd for sure.
Give the franchise to Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright. Because they love and understand ST. Unlike some directors….
Oh, Bones, you have no idea.
This time they should go back and get Mozart or ivory-billed woodpeckers or something like that. Not that whales aren’t important, but Scotty would absolutely lose his shit if Jim filled his ship with salt water.

The reaction from each of them *cries*

So will Nurse Chapel ever actually make a flesh-and-blood appearance on the Enterprise? Orci just laughs. “That’s certainly possible!

All I have to say about this is:
I’m going to punch you in the face, Bob Orci
I am so DONE with Bob Orci. And he claims to be the Trek lover of the writers. Go watch the series again, Bob. This time, pay attention. JFC…
