Re: Shatner Almost Had Part In 'Star Trek XI'

History repeats itself. Negotiations broke down with Shatner for an Enterprise guest shot. Fortunately his no show resulted in arguably their best effort, the "In A Mirror, Darkly" episodes.

If anything it's sad Generations marked his last input into the series but if he won't compromise... what can you do? Some of the worst of Trek is directly attributable to appeasing an actor's ego, instead of what was for better for the story. With Nimoy's role so central, Shatner was never really a serious consideration. How could they ever give him an equal word count in the script. It can be something as petty as that in Hollywood...
