Bob Orci and the lost Shatner scene

I know it's only been a few days since the film was released, but didn't Bob Orci say he was going to post the scene that the writers came up with for Shatner's version of Kirk?

I could be totally off base with this statement, but I thought I remember him saying that he would do that at some point.

If this is true I would love to see how the writers were going to use him just out of curiosity.

If your out there Bob, I loved the movie and I see what you guys meant when you said you couldn't fit Shatner in this time.

The Shat beams onto the Bridge on the final scene and says: "Don't worry kid, you get another Green Girl"

The only way I could see Shat is kind of a "head character" for Spock.

Re: Bob Orci and the lost Shatner scene

When Shatner was in the Nexus .. hehe sorry let me start that again . When Kirk was in the Nexus he had a choice, he could have went back and killed nero before he killed his dad, or go with Picard to Veridian III to save a few million lives. He made his choice.

How the hell would he have even known about Nero????? Nero was just a boy when Generations took place.

Shatner Scene Revealed

The Shatner scene that Orci and Kurtzman wrote has been revealed in an interview with them. I think it would have worked and led into Shatner doing the "Space, the final frontier..." at the end. That would have been quite nice and not forced. Not sure why J.J. didn't give Shatner a call and see what he thought.

Here's the link to the info:

Interesting. But Nimoy's voiceover worked just as well if not better. But it might be nice to see/hear both versions of that last shot and see which was superior.

Oh, I was quite happy with Nimoy doing the voice over. But I think having Shatner do it would have given them an additional reason for having his holographic message to Spock at the end. It would have been less shoe-horning him in because of that.

I don't think it would have hurt the movie at all. I'm guessing Abrams' notion that Shatner didn't want a "cameo" was the big reason behind not doing it, but if they had let Shatner read the script and decide for himself, he might have done it.

Pine should've don the final voice over, to be his opening/inductory entry into his captain's log.

Yuck, sounds forced and corny - Nimoy doing the voiceover worked very well, a lovely nod to STII and a nice fangasm moment for us
Keep Shatner out of nuTrek!

Re: Shatner Scene Revealed

I'm glad Shatner never got to do it..that would not be bringing him back, just using him as a hologram. Not good enough. If Shatner is going to be kept out of the new trek then Nimoy should also.
