"Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril." - Oscar Wilde
Haha! I'm feeling optimistic though. George Lucas's role will be minimal and I loved JJ Abrams' Star Trek films. It's funny because I was doing some reading online and a lot of Trekkies were complaining that that they were too much like Star Wars. I was thinking "Ah, so that's why I like them then!"
But really, the worry is real. ;)
