And seriously, as I said above, maybe it would've been better if we just saw him standing there, taking it all in. Perhaps with a look of satisfaction or approval. Mabye even a very slight smile or even chuckle, as if what he is seeing had triggered a pleasant memory in him.
I'm in agreement with this. I expected him to say nothing, just smile. I would've liked something more memorable, but don't know what that would be. As it is, it's understated and I don't mind it.
I would've loved Shatner's voiceover ending from the context of that article, but I'm very satisfied with what I got.
