I think we can agree that he'd be a better fit for Star Wars.

The majority of critics and viewers thought he fit just right for Star Trek:

It will be interesting to see whether the Star Wars movie he directs gets a higher score than ST09 or Into Darkness.

I remember reading a week or two ago that he turned that offer down so he could work on Star Trek. I guess he changed his mind.

Or the Disney lawyers threatened to Force-choke him if he revealed it before they were ready.

I enjoyed the movie for what it was. But it couldn't even pull off convincing technobabble since it was using "science" that even a fifth grader could tell you was nonsense.

"Magic" fits Star Wars better.

I was never a big Star Trek fan growing up, so for me, working on Star Trek didn?t have any of that, you know, almost fatal sacrilege
Practically flipping Star Trek the bird there.

To be fair, I think he pulls together decent writers for his sci-fi work but countermands them a bit too much.

Orci and Kurtzman are very capable, IMHO. But J.J. basically cut every explanation and mandated most of the sillier aspects. And they had a similar experience with Bay on Transformers.

I'd actually really like to see Orci and Kurtzman stay onboard for Trek but get paired with a thinking man's director, somebody who is highly detail oriented in some way.

Top picks: Aronofsky, Fincher, Nolan, Richard Kelly, Ronald D. Moore, Jane Espensen.

Partner any of these guys with Orci/Kurtzman. I'd also suggest soliciting Dorothy Fontana or David Gerrold for consultant roles.
