Star Trek 2009 and Star Trek Into Darkness screenwriter has responded to an editorial feature on Trekmovie.com criticizing the current state of the Star Trek franchise with some rather surprising comments.
Orci, whose identity has been vouched for by Trekmovie.com moderator Matt Wright, had this to say in response to the article:
Robert Orci wrote:I think the article above is akin to a child acting out against his parents. Makes it tough for some to listen, but since I am a loving parent, I read these comments without anger or resentment, no matter how misguided.
Having said that, two biggest Star Treks in a row with best reviews is hardly a description of “broken.” And frankly, your tone and attidude make it hard for me to listen to what might otherwise be decent notions to pursue in the future. As I love to say, there is a reason why I get to write the movies, and you don’t.”
Robert Orci wrote:"STID has infinetly more social commentary than Raiders in every Universe, and I say that with Harrison Ford being a friend. You lose credibility big time when you don’t honestly engage with the FUCKING WRITER OF THE MOVIE ASKING YOU AN HONEST QUESTION. You prove the cliche of shitty fans. And rude in the process. So, as Simon Pegg would say: FUCK OFF!”
