I feel like its worth noting that Star Trek didn’t become what it is thanks to the writers/producer/creators. Gene Roddenberry wasn’t a saint, he said and did some pretty sexist and horrible stuff. Rick Berman, Brannon Braga, JJ Abrams, and Bob Orci definitely aren’t much better.
Star Trek became what it is because of the actors, because of people like Leonard Nimoy, George Takei, Deforest Kelly, Nichelle Nichols, Gates Mcfadden, Marina Sirtis, Patrick Stewart, Michael Dorn, LeVar Burton, Wil Weaton, Avery Brooks, Terry Farrell, Nana Visitor, Alexander Siddig, Kate Mulgrew, Garret Wang, and Jeri Ryan.
And people like Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, and Doug Jung have been continuing that legacy the others left behind. And from what I’ve already heard about the discovery cast, I think this is going to continue on for a while.
