The other week, Star Trek Into Darkness writer Roberto Orci took to the Internets in response to an article on Trek Movie about fan’s at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention rating Star Trek Into Darkness as the worst Star Trek movie ever. He wasn’t alone in his reaction, Simon Pegg was also a little hot under the collar about the whole thing.
Although Pegg has not reconsidered his response, and this NerdBastard doesn’t think he should, Orci cooled down a bit, decided he could have handled the whole thing much better, and took to the Twitter-verse for his own mea copa.
Now, everything he says is true, that wasn’t exactly the best way to address the problem, but we all know how late night Internet rage can quickly escalate into something we would never do in the bright morning sun.
Orci really didn’t do or say anything that bad or unforgivable when stacked up against many of the other Internet rants we’ve seen. On a scale of one to ten, his would only rate a 5 at best.
What do you think? Should he have even bothered except for his own peace of mind?
