Hmm...considering that there soon will be a sequel to "Star Trek Academy" (or was it "Star Trek Troopers"?) I can't shake the feeling that Bill Shatner's participation at the Academy Awards wasn't entirely coincidental or maybe even some kind of "statement" which Captain Kirk the Academy members do prefer.
I think that's a stretch. It was a funny comedy bit, not a "statement" about anything.
(I'm sure the Academy stays up nights fretting about this vital issue!)
