I always knew JJ Abrams was a jerk.... he even looks like one... (and a hipster... hes a hipster jerk....) Im sure he brought the 3 frame clip to be a troll... not because Paramount said that was all he could bring.
And for those that don't want to look at JJ or Conan, here is a screenshot of the three frames that JJ brought. Spock, in a Volcano, in a "volcano suit".
Ya, 3 frames from the movie is all he brought...
It's a completely alternate reality, JJ's Star Trek. They don't have to have the same behavior, the same Federation, or anything like the original ST. Just the names and stuff.
Once you accept that it's not the same, and stop comparing it, you get much more enjoyment out of it
That's my 2 cents.
The three frames still looked awesome btw.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.
Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.
