"I'm always thinking about the DVD part of it because I'm a fan of the DVD," stated Abrams. "So I want to make sure that we are doing stuff that is going to be beneficial. So if its about getting video crews in as early as possible to document moments that might seem insanely mundane or unimportant but in context show how things got made," the director explained. "The crew of a movie like this, especially this crew who work so hard and they did such incredible work, they're usually the invisible person. If they do a great job you're not really thinking about the costume. If they're doing a great job you're not really thinking about that visual effect, that prop or that set and its even more reason that it should be celebrated," he continued. "So what I love about the special features is people like Michael Kaplan, Scott Chambliss, Michael Giacchino or any of these people get to take the stage, talk about and document the amazing work that they do and often get credit for but don't get screen time. So its' really a nice thing to see them front and center," Abrams concluded.
Finally, the director spoke about how some of the logic of the actual events in the film had been plotted out and why decisions were made to cut some explanation scenes. "There are elements in the special features and deleted scenes that address the storyline and the logic of it," Abrams said. "For example, one of the things people had issues with was, 'Oh come on, Kirk is going to run into an ice cave and he's going to find Spock 'Prime'? That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard," mocked the director. "Granted, you know, unlikely but in the scene where they are in the cave, there was a sequence that is on the DVD that was cut from the movie, where Spock speaks to that and he talks about how this is sort of the timelines way of trying to repair itself and it is as much about fate as anything," he stated.
