if Leonard Nimoy or Johnathon Frakes was directing instead of JJ Abrams?
don't worry, it'll fit

Maybe, can't tell for sure , but I guess it would be better yes. Because they both have alot of Star Trek history behind them, they know how it works. And the both have directed Trek eps.

Personally, I'm a great fan of Jonathan Frakes' work in Star Trek. second only to that of Nimoy.
It would be worth watching if Jonathan or Leonard directed it; however it really boils down to who writes it and who produces it.
Personally I'd rather not have JJ Abrams involved in the project at all, regardless of his history with the drama 'lost' and Mission Impossible 3.
clarify something for me: did Abrams do anything besides Nemesis? cuz if not, then lets pray he doesn't help with star trek 11.

Um...im just goin to call that a major typo lol I believe you mean MI3 ie the only completed movie on his resume.
yes, that's either a typo or me not knowing whta I'm talking about. you figure it out.
regardless, i saw MI3, so...my comment stands
Well he has done 'Lost' but in terms of movie or trek related experience, he has none whatsoever, except for 'help' from paramount. I don't think that'll be enough though - and apparently they've just cast the actor for the 'younger spock'; Zachary Quinto. Apparently he's from Heroes, but Leonard Nimoy is also meant to be in the film. Hopefully if Leonard feels something is out of place on the set, he'll be the one to set it straight. I really hope they don't screw this film up...
well if the recent trend is anything to judge by, this film will likely be even worse from the point of view of TV show fans...
I hope the film doesn't have any 'timetravel' or 'flashback' sequences. Because its set in the TOS timeframe with TOS characters, it does set a fair few restrictions on the plot and environment due to what has already been established as canon.
However, the main thing I'm concerned about is whether or not the new film will reflect the original series. The original series was based around the unknown, exploring new and frightening regions with only your trusted crewmen and ship to guide you. If the new film doesn't have that element of the unknown or the sense of diplomacy or equality... It will fail as a trek film, in a similar manner that V, IX and X failed.
