IDK Maybe give Shatner a quick flashback scene? He's such a big part of the old Trek. I wouldn't think a small amount of face time in a new movie would hurt. But hey, that's me.
I loved his work as kirk but the time for a cameo.was last tome in a message to young kirk to show he was still alive post generations... now its irrelevant. This kirk's future is unwritten so no need to show a future version
Yea, Shatner's great as Kirk, the first movie was the opportunity to do Prime Universe Cameos. I wouldn't mind if they brought him in to play another small part, despite the fact we've seen him not looking much different playing Kirk, but, at this point, I'm not hot on the idea of a Prime Kirk cameo
I suspose they could have Spock remember back to a conversation with Kirk in the Prime Universe, right before his trip back in time, and take something from that conversation and make it relevant to the plot of the movie, but, I don't think I'd be in favor of it any other way.
One Day I hope to be the Man my Cat thinks I am
Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?
