"I would jump at the chance to work with the inordinately-talented J.J. Abrams on a new STAR TREK film. Yes, I would likely try to steer him toward the original film idea I was asked to pitch, by the late Gene Roddenberry and a production exec whose name I have blissfully flensed from memory (but he had been, if I recall, a hairdresser or clothing designer or ex-boyfriend of someone or other, and he kept trying to press me to include the Mayan Calendar).
No Guardian in 'Star Trek' -- in other words, Harlan Ellison said, "$Give$ $me$ $money$!" and the producers said, "Frell that, we'll just make our own time travel device with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget time travel."
Gotta love dem 'Futurama' references.....
