I'm tired. Just give the man his 15 minutes of fame and be done with it.

Re: William Shatner wants to return as Jim Kirk in Abramís Universe...

I was waiting for this. I would have preferred it if Kirk could have made it into the last movie. I really, really wanted J.J. Abrams to figure out a way to put him in the film - in a flashback scene with Spock - I don't know, whatever. At any rate, that was then. Now, I just want a strong character driven story, letting our cast of seven grow - on their own - especially the triumvirate.

IDK Maybe give Shatner a quick flashback scene? He's such a big part of the old Trek. I wouldn't think a small amount of face time in a new movie would hurt. But hey, that's me.

I loved his work as kirk but the time for a cameo.was last tome in a message to young kirk to show he was still alive post generations... now its irrelevant.
But he wasn't still alive after Generations. That's why the cameo in question would have been a CANON VIOLATION.

LOL, what's up with you guys?

The interviewer asks him:Is there any chance you can be in the next or a future Star Trek?


And he simply answer: Well, I would love to.




Talk about making things up and blowing things out of proportion and taking things out of context all at once.
Three for three on the over-the-top scale is hardly a record here, but I appreciate it!

No, it was a (birthday?) message Kirk had sent to Spock just before Kirk's disappearance into the Nexus.

The bonus scene appears in IDW Comics's movie adaptation.

Do you really think Abrams cares about canon?

More than his detractors do, at any rate.

Sure but they'll need to get him on a liquid-only diet first.

Seriously, Bill, I think that ship is now far, faaaaaar in the distance. So far, it's gonna topple off the horizon.

He really wants it, though, doesn't he?

I'm pretty sure the next movie wouldn't be able to survive Shatner's huge ego.

Yknow, seeing Shat in a brief cameo as Future Kirk or something would be a blast, but only if it were kept a deep dark secret and really sprung on us only on opening day.

Or whenever Karl Urban blurts it out.

ShatnerKirk's appearance in STXI would have been from the Prime universe ( though at this point it's possible they could do another time travel story and feature Shatner as future Abramsverse Kirk ). The Abramsverse in general is not an entirely clean slate because everything before 2233 is supposed to have been the same.

We could have a scene where Pine Kirk is chillin in his ready room, checking out some new apps on his communicator.
And there's one app that takes a holographic photo of you and shows how you're going to look when you get old.
A hologram of Shatner comes up...cameo achieved.
That would certainly motivate PineKirk to stay in shape.


Maybe the mind-meld prime-Spock did with PineKirk left some residual memory of prime-Kirk and he could have some kind of flash-"forward".

The issue being that Shatner looks a lot older than when Kirk died.

Nimoy has dignity. Shatner has none.
