Many 'Star Trek' fans felt personally betrayed when director J.J. Abrams ditched the series and jumped ship to 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' After all, the two iconic science fiction franchises have been embroiled in a silly war among fans for decades now -- either you're in one camp or the other, it seems. But how would Trekkies feel if Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, took a journey to the 'Star Wars' universe?

The geek world was torn asunder when J.J. Abrams jumped off 'Star Trek' and signed on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' However, it turns out that his decision to do so went beyond simply preferring one franchise over another. According to a new report, Abrams felt strangled by legal red tape wrapped around the 'Star Trek' franchise, which prevented him from creating a true multimedia platform (and making a lot more money).

For some 'Star Trek' fans, it was a slap to the face when director J.J. Abrams stopped going where no man has gone before and decided to journey to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. How will they feel when they see Abrams discussing how great 'Star Wars' is with the chief engineer of the Enterprise, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott (aka Simon Pegg)?

The cast and crew of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' are currently on a whirlwind publicity tour. Starting in Sydney, then Moscow and Germany, now London. We had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban (aka Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy) whose comic relief performance in this sequel is just as terrific as in the first.
He does, however, get to do a little scientific work in the picture, and some of it involves medical tests from some old fuzzy franchise friend – the Tribbles.
Sharp-eyed viewers saw a Tribble in the 2009 picture (it's on Scotty's desk during the Delta Vega sequence) but this time he's front and center. We asked Urban about working with a Tribble and he told us a surprising fact.

Perhaps the title was a pretty clear indication of what to expect, but 'Star Trek Into Darkness' looks a little bleak, huh? For a series that's been built on the concept of humanity standing together and bettering itself, it sure is odd to see the phrase "Earth will fall" in a newly released TV spot.

Director JJ Abrams is infamous for keeping details on his projects on the down low, so many people have already begun speculating what will go on with the production of 'Star Wars Episode 7.' If there's one thing we learned from watching the production of the prequel trilogy, it's that 'Star Wars' fans are as passionate as they are nosy and if there's one thing we've learned from 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' it's that Abrams plays things close to the vest. A recent interview with LucasFilm honcho Kathleen Kennedy shed some light on this whole situation.
