Re: I'd like a Nimoy "cameo"

Perhaps Quinto can have long conversations with a Spock doll, or an animated dream sequence so Nimoy can phone it in from his living room.

Re: I'd like a Nimoy "cameo"

A Nimoy cameo could be excellent. Imagine it - Earth in utter shambles after Harrison's done his damage. Spock goes to his elder self, finds him utterly shocked.

"This is like nothing I ever faced..."

Most impactful 2-minute cameo ever. Hammers home the alternate reality/destiny schmestiny thing. And whatever rattles Old Spock must be bad news for our crew.

Re: I'd like a Nimoy "cameo"

I'm a big fan of show, don't tell and a ham-fisted cameo like the one you describe at that point would detract more than it would add.

It would not make me happy!! I love JJ's take on Star Trek!

As much as I love Nimoy I do think the tourch has been passed.

Re: I'd like a Nimoy "cameo"

I very much doubt that this will happen...

But I don't see any harm in it if it does.

The torch has been passed without a doubt, but there's no harm in rekindling the nostalgia a tiny little bit.

Remember the speculation (based on visuals in the teaser) about a Memorial Service for someone, that might be reason enough for a quick cameo from him. The mentioned robes would seem to validate the possibility.

Then you would love the scene described. The version you would have a problem with wouldn't show Spock Prime's shock. It wouldn't show Spock Prime at all. It would have some other character telling us Spock Prime was shocked.

Not even close. I'm saying I don't need Nimoy crammed into a scene telling me how bad things are just for the sake of cramming Nimoy into a scene. I'd rather just see how bad things are and have the film itself convey that message to me.

I'm not asking what purpose him being at the memorial would serve, I'm asking what purpose jamming Leonard Nimoy into that scene would serve other than fanwank.

Spock Prime, like most Vulcans, are busy.....repopulating their species!!!! He simply doesn't have the time nor stamina to appear in this movie!!! Side note: if T'pol was real, she'd be pregnant for the next 35 years

Tuvok did say the Vulcan labido increases with age. Spock Prime should be around 150. I'm sure he just lays in bed and waits for the next woman to come in.

Damn, this is giving me all kinds of fan fic ideas...

Firstly let me say I don't care if they do it or not. I was not suggesting it as an idea they better have thought of themselves and included in the film.

Now, help me understand your resistance to the idea. Do you know something more about the film than I, something which would logically preclude a cameo from Nimoy at a memorial service - like you know the service is for someone Spock doesn't or couldn't possibly know or care about, and therefore would have no reason to stand among the mourners and grieve? Could he not be there because he is the deceased?

Next, if a logical reason for him to be there did exist, brings me to his actual 'presence'; heck, Nimoy need not be there in the flesh at all, providing he has no lines. A stand-in wearing his robes with a cg face looking stoically onto the proceedings along with everyone else, (or lurking in the back, even.) Would that really be so terribly fanwanky, and if so please explain why.

Because no one but a hard core fan would even think about it?

I don't care whether he's in the movie or not. It's just not interesting.
