The more I read about it, the more I can tell that I have no interest in seeing it. If your Star Trek show is set in a dystopian future, you're doing it wrong, IMHO. I also find the reports of...

I'd be more inclined to believe that if I felt like this event was likely to attract NEW fans. It seems foolhardy to drive off old fans BEFORE you manage to attract a bunch of new ones.
