Newsroom Conversations: Geeks in the newsroom

News that J.J. Abrams is taking over the “Star Wars” franchise has movie geeks, including the our own Pat Abdalla and Matt Eyer, very excited.
Abdalla: It stinks that he couldn’t merge the two franchises. You know, have a “Star Trek” movie where they stumble onto some Jedi’s.
Eyer: They don’t go that far.
Abdalla: What?
Eyer: It’s “a galaxy far, far away.”
Abdalla: Oh, yeah.
