  7. Mook says:

    Well, if they don’t cast Walter White, maybe they can get Jesse Pinkman.  Who wouldn’t want to hear him utter the immortal words, “Beam me up, bitch!” ?

  8. Q2 says:

    Smart-Trek, this franchise is about exploration, peace, and the understanding of other cultures. What Abrams did was star wars in the 23rd century.

  9. Spartacus says:

    Nice, I’m down for smart and action. Also no one told you because they were too bust staring at it, not for being too big but for being nice

  20. Wraith says:

    Team Smart-Trek! Action Trek is just Star Wars.

      Indeed. Trek is about exploring the human condition. Vulcans being about pure logic was not done by osmosis, it serves a purpose. Vulcan logic versus human emotion, what wins out?
