LOTS OF LENS FLARE!
Ever since the reboot of Star Trek took place in 2009, there have been polarizing opinions on the so called “JJ-verse” This week, Dan and Bill tackle this controversial topic and give their insights into what they like and what they don’t like about this alternate timeline.
It seems that the majority of people that don’t like this timeline are extremely vocal in how JJ Abrams “destroyed Star Trek”. The Trek Geeks discuss those topics and bring up several facts about how these stories actually honor the original series on a variety of different levels! Is everything in this universe perfect? Heck no, and they discuss the things that rub them the wrong way, too.
