My initial reaction was sort of along the same lines as Shatner. Why does he get Star Trek and Star Wars? But the simple truth is that Disney gave Star Wars to Abrams because he so effectively revitalized Star Trek. Love it or hate it, there's no denying that the newest Trek movie was a huge success and Disney is hoping we'll see more of the same from Abrams with Star Wars. They're looking at it from a financial perspective. And I'm one of those people who actually enjoyed the new movie.

And really, Shatner has no business criticizing anyone else when we're discussing how Trek should be handled. When it was given to him the end result was Star Trek V.
