I have to admit that I'm a little apprehensive about Abrams' Star Wars... The reason being that my biggest gripe with Star Trek is that it's littered with too many callbacks, too much fan service.

What are the 3 biggest things that a casual, non-Trekkie, moviegoer knows about Star Trek?

1) Klingons
2) Tribbles
3) Khaaaaaaaaaan!!!

And not only can all three be found in Star Trek Into Darkness, but each one plays a major role in the plot.

If there's ONE thing that the prequels suffered way too much from (other than Jar-Jar), it's the ridiculous amount of callbacks and fan service shoehorned into the story for the sake of nostalgia.

Star Wars is in desperate need of a wholly-new adventure, and I don't think we're going to get that with JJ Abrams... Especially not with the same characters coming back (I fully expect to see a "Han shoots first" scene involving Solo's son or something - you heard it here first!)



Oh, and then there's this:
