So how does Paramount celebrate the 50th anniversary of a venerable science fiction icon? By hiring a director with zero genre credits and is known for brain-dead street racing movies.

Oh and Justin Lin is the Executive Producer of Scorpion, a show that brought us this stupidity:

Apparently the studio saw the tanker-loads of money Guardians of the Galaxy made and wants a piece of that action.

So the Star Trek we knew and loved is pretty much dead now, being reborn as just another action franchise. Going to spike my egg nog and drink a toast to its passing. Who’s with me?
