ROOT: Live long and may the Force be with you

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — I am begging J.J. Abrams to step away from Star Trek and let someone with an imagination take over the franchise. The new cast is awesome and the special effects capabilities we have these days could make any Star Trek movie epic.

I am also begging J.J. Abrams to step away from Star Wars. He is already on the verge of ruining one great space story. He has no right to destroy the other.

This is the nerd side of me signing off until next year.

George N Root III is a Lockport resident and he often boldly goes where no man has gone before. His column appears every Wednesday and is part of an ongoing mission. He can be reached at georgeroot@verizon.net, but not if you are a Klingon. Live long, and prosper.
