Star Trek game “emotionally hurt” JJ Abrams

Authored by


Did you play the recent Star Trek game? No? That’s probably for the best; even JJ Abrams director of Star Trek was hurt by it, emotionally, you cruel beasts. Apparently JJ Abrams actually worked with the developers for a while until he could see how the project was going to turn out.

Speaking to Gamerhub.TV Abrams said:

“[It] was obviously a big disappointment to me. We were actually involved from the very beginning and then we sort of realised that it was not going in a place where we were going to get what we wanted, so we dropped out and they continued to do it despite… y’know”

He continued to say he was actually hurt by the game:

“For me emotionally it hurt, ‘cos we were working our asses off making the movie and then this game came out and it got, this isn’t even my opinion, it got universally panned and I think that it was something without question that didn’t help the movie and arguably hurt it.”

At least Abrams isn’t living in a fantasy world rainbows and multi-coloured ponies I guess? Besides, I’ve played worse…

Thanks, Eurogamer.

  1. Why don’t the poor, Vulcan mass-murderer, JJ just pretend it’s in a so-called “alternate timeline”?

  2. I want to start a website. It will be asking for money only to fund the seminars associated with holding meetings for the clients and for mailouts. How should I go about setting that up?.

  3. I have a small background in magazine journalism but my new job requires no writing at all, except for emails. . . I would like to start doing some creative writing but I don’t know where to start, as in, what do I write about, and whether it’s actually worth bothering with or not. I’d probably be more inclined to do it if there was a competition or group I could join online or something like that. . . Does anyone do any writing or their own, if so, how did you get started? And what have you gotten out of it?.
