Well, two days ago, on Monday, Star Trek: Beyond director Justin Lin tweeted his support of Axanar. It was shocking. Here was the director of Paramount’s new Star Trek movie, (the movie being arguably the reason Axanar is being sued by Paramount) tweeting that the guys signing his paycheck were being “ridiculous”!
We were blown away. And EVERYONE picked this up it seemed. Cynics said it was a publicity stunt. Fans cheered. And Rob and I were simply stunned. We are both HUGE Justin Lin fans because of his Fast and the Furious movies (3-6). We were both excited to see him take over the STar Trek movie franchise and the disappointing Into Darkness.
What does it mean? We don’t know. But we thank Mr. Lin for his support and reminding us all that the fans make Star Trek what it is.
We all plan on being there when Star Trek Beyond opens. Thank you Mr. Lin!
