The question I mean to pose is if the ST will be a self-contained story i.e. having no unresolved plot lines or references to unexplored areas of the story by the end of Ep IX. Consider the TV shows "Lost" and "Fringe", which Abrams formulated. Consider also his movie "Cloverfield". Admittedly, I haven't seen anything of his beyond that paltry list, but in all these cases, I was left wanting more to satisfy the story questions they raised. One gets the impression that setting up mysteries and leaving them hanging even at the end is a staple of his craft. I know Abrams isn't writing the film, but with the prospect of spinoffs or indeed a subsequent trilogy , could it be that he was brought on board in part due to him being the type of director who could effectively leave tantalising hints to future SW media? Do you think that the ST will be a "closed off" story that will tie up all loose ends or will there be obligatory open ends which beg questions that can only be answered by more Star Wars?
