Following in the less-than-glorious footsteps of Mr. Scott himself, actor Simon Pegg, now it’s Star Trek writer Roberto Orci’s turn to tell those who didn’t like Into Darkness to literally #@&! off!

Bob Orci took to Trek Movie’s recent article about how Star Trek is broken, and how to fix it called, well, “Star Trek is broken – Here are ideas on how to fix it.”

The article was written following a fan vote (done during Creation's Star Trek Las Vegas convention) that basically crowned Into Darkness as the worst. Star Trek. Movie. Ever.

And it ain’t pretty.

Amongst a few choice comments from Roberto Orci are these:

I think the article above is akin to a child acting out against his parents. Makes it tough for some to listen, but since I am a loving parent, I read these comments without anger or resentment, no matter how misguided.

Then he says:

Having said that, two biggest Star Treks in a row with best reviews is hardly a description of “broken.” And frankly, your tone and attidude make it hard for me to listen to what might otherwise be decent notions to pursue in the future. As I love to say, there is a reason why I get to write the movies, and you don’t.”

Followed by:

"STID has infinetly more social commentary than Raiders in every Universe, and I say that with Harrison Ford being a friend. You lose credibility big time when you don’t honestly engage with the [#@&!]-ING WRITER OF THE MOVIE ASKING YOU AN HONEST QUESTION. You prove the cliche of s---ty fans. And rude in the process. So, as Simon Pegg would say: {#@&!] OFF!”

Ouch! Do you agree with Roberto Orci?
