Writers on Star Trek

George RR Martin thinks the new Star Trek Movie sucks.

"No spoilers here, just a resounding thumbs down. Take a pass."
"the writing sucks start to finish, and the science fictional aspects are ludicrous even for STAR TREK."

Orson Scott Card thinks it was good.

"this movie has everything else I could have wished for: good writing, good acting, a powerful story, and the kind of ethical-dilemma philosophy that Roddenberry faked."

I found it interesting that two excellent writers had two diametrically opposite opinions on the quality of the writing!

Now, I am no trekkie. And I haven't seen the movie yet. I always thought Star trek was more soap opera than science fiction.
