Hitler learns of JJ Abrams new Star Trek movie...

***AN OLIVE BRANCH TO TNG - Added December of 2015***
I'd like to clarify (and maybe apologize for) some of the TNG comments in this video. See, I am old enough to have had every episode of TOS memorized by heart before TNG aired. I loved it and my love of Star Trek overall was built on it. I also did watch and love TNG. However, in 2009 when this video was made, a number of things had recently happened. One was the HD "restoration" of TOS which was headed up by Mike Okuda - who we all know as an effects guy from TNG. I did not appreciate the vast changes Mr. Okuda made to the effects shots - with a lot of wild camera pans and cartoonish CGI that did not really fit with the rest of the show. I also did not much care for things like adding Aztec hull plating to the original 1701 (this is an iconic ship - leave it alone!). I was especially annoyed when the TNG-HD came around, they announced they would be recreating the original TNG effects shot-for-shot as closely as possible. This is as if to say TNG was sacred ground but we will just do whatever we want to TOS while making smarmy comments about it being campy or whatever. Then this JJ Abrams horseshit gets made, and Alex Kurtzman states he was was a Star Trek fan and he would make sure it was right. Well, he went on to say he really just watched TNG. So to me, here was another TNG jerkoff taking a huge dump on TOS. Not really helping matters at the time, TNG fans were either dumping on TOS because they were mad that the new movie would be going back there, or worse, they were in full support of JJ Abrams taking a complete shit all over these characters. I was pretty miffed at the time and it is reflected in the video, but now, I don't really have anything against TNG. Most TNG fans have now come around to realize these movies are complete shit.
