Star Trek Movie Adaptation #6 - Shatner deleted scene?

Star Trek Movie Adaptation #6 (FC 32 pages $3.99)
The Star Trek movie adaptation description notes how the series includes "scenes not included in the original film!"
... there is also the intriguing possibility that the final comic issue will give us a visualization of the never-filmed scene written for the possible William Shatner cameo in the film.

Hmm. it wouldn't be canon but still interesting to include certain deleted scenes in this comic book series but not all of them.

What were the deleted scenes?

I think the Shatner scene as written was terrific, and it would've been nice to include it in the film. It would've been tricky to execute, though, since Shatner today is a lot, well, rounder than he was at the time in Kirk's life when the message was supposedly recorded. A comic-book version wouldn't have that problem.

Do we actually know the scene will appear? Or is it just something the Trekmovie people are inferring? Because it seems the latter to me, which is not terribly exciting.

#1: Opens on Vulcan, as per DVD bonus scenes, with "Spock Birth".

#2: "Amanda and Sarek Argue After Spock Fights", as per DVD bonus scenes.

"Young Kirk, Johnny and Uncle Frank", as per DVD bonus scenes, but names of George Jr and/or Johnny not stated in print, neither does Jimmy wave or shout to anyone while driving.

#3: None that I can recall.

The DVD lists these bonus scenes:
  • Spock Birth
  • Klingons Take Over Narada (this scene appears in "Nero" comic mini-series)
  • Young Kirk, Johnny and Uncle Frank
  • Amanda and Sarek Argue After Spock Fights
  • Prison Interrogation and Breakout (this scene appears in "Nero" comic mini-series)
  • Sarek Gets Amanda (forthcoming?)
  • Dorm Room and Kobayashi Maru (original version; theatrical version is in comic)
  • Kirk Apologizes to the Green Girl (forthcoming?)
  • Sarek Sees Spock (forthcoming?)

Re: Star Trek Movie Adaptation #6 - Shatner deleted scene?

Although nicely written, I think the Shatner scene would have undermined the new Trek crew in the same way that Riker and Troi did the NX01 crew in the Enterprise finale.

Plus I don't think there's enough anti-ageing CG tech in the world to convincingly take the Shat back to 1994 (it would work brilliantly on Mr. Data, though! "It looks fake!" "He's an android!"). As Christopher said, not a problem in comics...

^ They could have just had an audio recording from Kirk, not a hologram.

Except... Mr Shatner said, "No cameos". He wanted any return of the character to have as much impact on the storyline as Nimoy's Spock Prime.

^ I never understood that "no cameos" thing. He's done cameos in the past. Was he referring to cameos so far as Star Trek is concerned, similar to what Nimoy and Kelley said when they were offered roles in Generations?

Maybe it's the old "favored-nations" thing -- whatever Nimoy gets, Shatner wants the same. If there's a big part for Spock, Shatner wants a big part for Kirk.

He was playing a trump card hoping to get something akin to what Nimoy had. A meaty acting role in what he was probably thinking was going to be a big money-spinner of a movie.

Yeah, he's done lots of cameos in the past, but I think Nimoy's participation in this took him by surprise.

If those TMP contract clauses are still binding, it probably would have meant that, had Shatner only done a cameo for JJ, they'd still have had to pay him the equal to Nimoy's salary.

Re: Star Trek Movie Adaptation #6 - Shatner deleted scene?

I'm hoping its the never shot scene of Shartner myself. Just read the script that was posted over on Trekmovie an hour ago. Would be interesting to see in the last issue.

Don't forget that "Countdown" had Nero looking at Shatneresque computer profiles of Kirk before the Narada was swept out of his normal timeline.

Was that realistic for him to want? Any chance of him actually *getting* it?
