"Rabid Shatner fan". Concentrate on seeing a "Trek" film rather than a "Kirk" film and you may enjoy it despite yourself.
I've been a Trek fan for many years. It's only lately, that I realised how integral Shat was to the whole initiative. Of course I will see XI and bring my family and friends kicking and screaming. But it won't be... real... without the Shat...(dramatic pauses intentional)
"Tough shit" - us Brits know that phrase!
