Re: USA Today poll: 70% want Shatner back as Kirk

And I'll bet that at least 70% of the people who took that poll are Trekkies, and not this notorious "general public" we speak of. I don't think the average American cares enough.

Why are the BBKers so ardent about getting Shatner in the film?

They have brought back Kirk, after all. And as he's played by that twentysyomething youngster Chris Pine, there's the potential for more Kirk for decades to come.


I suspect that the Bring Back Kirk people are really just the Bring Back Shatner people. It's not so much Kirk that they want back but Shatner playing Kirk is what they want.

Re: USA Today poll: 70% want Shatner back as Kirk

Now it only says 66% (out of 2,158 votes). Though the exact question is: "Are you disappointed Shatner isn't in the upcoming 'Star Trek' film?"

I voted that I am not disappointed... I don't care if he isn't in the film. I would rather him not be there than for a ridiculous method for resurrecting him being used....

Then by all means vote in the Internet polls. Doubtless Abrams will take his direction from it.
