1. J.J. set to direct Star Wars Episode VII
After saying “because of my loyalty to Star Trek, and also just being a fan, I wouldn’t even want to be involved in the next version of those things. I declined any involvement very early on. I’d rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them.”   JJ has apparently changed his mind and is now confirmed as being set to direct Star Wars VII.  What does that mean for the future of Star Trek?  To quote Terry Lynn “Can Star Trek have Christopher Nolan or Joss Whedon now, please? Please!?”
