This. Fans always know best. Remember the BringBackKirk movement. I can't believe TPTB never bought into it! It would have been gold!!!
Wow, I just checked out that site. What ********ness.

Yes, even more literally than the BringBackKirk people could ever have expected.

Paramount brought back James T. Kirk...

...and too late, the BBK folks realized that they should have called themselves Bring Back Shatner.

Depending on whether or not they liked the movie, that's a twist ending worthy of the Twilight Zone

Someone should remake Shatner's Twilight Zone episodes with Chris Pine - now that would be a twist!
