This is going to hurt my geek street cred, but I'm not totally enamored with everything J.J. Abrams related, and indeed, when I read he "made a mistake" on Star Trek 2, I was curious to hear what that he thought that was.

While I was able to enjoy the movie on the second time I saw it, I would have to agree:  Mistakes were made.

The mistake he thinks he made:  Not revealing that Khan was the villain.

Says Abrams:
"The truth is I think it probably would have been smarter just to say upfront 'This is who it is.' It was only trying to preserve the fun of it, and it might have given more time to acclimate and accept that’s what the thing was," Abrams said."
Actually, Mr Abrams, it would have been smarter not to use Khan at all.
