Well you are right: the et ceteras like Shatner were all there; only Shatner himself wasn't.
True. Was the reason he didn't attend ever given? I've always wondered why he didn't show up.
Perhaps Shatner was trying to distance himself from the Kirk role at that time, so that he wouldn't be typecast? Or maybe he just woke up late that morning and missed his plane.

The well-known press photo taken in front of the shuttle shows all of the main seven less Shatner, plus Gene Roddenberry, all dressed in some really hideous clothing.
FWIR, Shatner was doing what he did pretty much every day that decade, working. Probably KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS or a game show.

loved Doohan with the beard, it's almost Connery-esque.
