Seriously? your worried about science inaccuracies?!? ALL Sci-Fi Movies have inaccuracies, who cares, except the .01% hard core nerd population who will complain about anything...

The rebooted Star Trek Movie was IMO the best Star Trek movie made, with maybe the exception of Wrath of Khan... The rest of the star trek franchises while entertaining was one big cheese ball fest.

I'm glad Abrams is the Director, means there might be hope that the movie will actually be good... The only movie that was decent was Empire Strikes Back, the rest of the movies were cheesy at best...

the cheese ball fest was what made it fun to watch for me but ye some hard core fans will complain about anything, they would have found fault in GL doing them so you can't win the hearts and minds of everyone with a franchise as big as star wars

I agree that Abrams can make a good action movie which is more of what Star Wars is at least to me anyway. I am not saying science failures make the movies horrible I still enjoyed the new Star Trek but those moments still make me cringe when they happen. And Undiscovered Country was better than reboot.

Hopefully he'll avoid using time travel as a plot device like he did with Lost and the reboot. If he can manage that, I think we'll get a great new movie.

I can't stand J.J. Abrams as a director, and personally think this is a horrible choice. I have never liked a single one of his movies or T.V. shows, IMO he seems to use odd cinematics to distract from the fact that he can't direct, much like Michael Bay uses huge explosions for the same purpose. As to the fact that he is a huge Star Wars fan....so what, so am I, does that mean I could direct a Star Wars movie? I think not.
Dirty deeds done...for a lot of credits!

Well been confirmed, JJ will do the next star wars, hell even been shown on every major news. Hell if world news tonight was calling it and Diane Saywer was sayin it, and they got some good fact checkers, probably true.

So get set kids, JJ Abhrams is going to do Star Wars 7. Hey i look at it this way, can't be ANY worse than Phantom Menace.
