Then you missed the entire point of what Star Trek was about.
But the more I watch, the more I think Shat WAS Trek.
No, I think you clearly missed something called Star Trek. It ran from 1966 to 1969. Check it out sometime and you'll understand what she is talking about. It amazes me the number of fans from the Berman era that truly are clueless as to the structure and storytelling focus of TOS.
Anyway, Shatner would be great in the film and only make it better, but I don't require his presence to make it good. As long as all the other ingredients of the stew are cooked properly, I'm good.
