I cannot believe the blasphemy on this thread concerning the god father, without which there would be no board to post on.
Shatner is Jim Kirk, Pine (who does a great job) stars as Jim Kirk.

So if the Don says Abrams is a pig well then there you have it, he's a pig. Of course he was joking and it was half quoted but even if he wasn't you better recognize all the glory that is Bill Shatner. I can't believe that people would say such bad things about the greatest thespian of the past 3 generations.
