    Stewart getting away from Picard has been the best thing to happen to the world. He became something amazing. Especially his appearance on Extras.

    I think you're right.

    Besides, if they do anything special for the 50th, it should include the Shat.

    Yes. I can see positive and negative reactions to this from fandom. Thing is, NOW is the time. Nimoy's role in 09 and cameo in ID stand on their own, but could also be deemed a logical lead up to Shatner's return. For the big 50, YES.

    Just a nice acknowledgement of some sort would be great. Even if it were something like the crew looking across a reflection and seeing their older selves bounced back at them. A nice visual, young and old.

    Nimoy's presence in ID served so little purpose to the story I cannot help feel there was some ulterior motive for his cameo. Like a placeholder of sorts suggesting some greater future involvement.

    I cannot think of any bigger future involvement than his eventually giving us the Grand Tour of New Vulcan.

    Would/should they CGI in the deceased actors?

    Yes they should. It doesn't have to be anything more than a few seconds but it would be an incredible salute to what came before.

    You could probably pull elements from the various movies or from the original series now that we have both in HD to create a nice effect without having to go CGI. (I assume you mean creating CGI replicas) Just create a digital composite, maybe add in some motion into it. :)

    My vote would be NuTrek viewing TOS era counterparts. Have the ensemble cast look at the prime versions of themselves at the same approximate age.

    But I also think that for the 50th anniversary, they should find a way to squeeze Shatner in for a real role.

    It's like Branson, Missouri, but with fewer fake smiles. In other words, it's like Vegas.
