That About Sums It Up

Wil Wheaton, who starred as an adolescent in Star Trek's Next Generation series, has grown up into one of those rare celebrities I actually think must be interesting in person.

When I saw Star Trek, it was more like J.J. Abrams said, "Listen, this thing that you love? I get it, man -- you love it, and it still exists, and I'm not messing with it. This is my take on it, so if you want to come with me and see what I do with it, welcome aboard, and if you don't, that's totally cool, it's not a big deal."

I think this sums up both the movie, and the general surprise/positive response to it, including its beyond-the-nerding-crowd appeal.
