    One should start a poll: would you like to be in a Star Trek film?

    And all who vote yes get insulted because they are full of themselves, have a bloated ego, have no dignity, and are way too fat to appear in a film.

    Guilty on all counts. Sigh.

    It would, if anyone who participated and voted yes had anything close to Shatner's fame and history in Trek.

    I think this was a jab at everyone calling him that, wasn't it? I may have misunderstood.

    It was but it wasn't a really relevant or fair jab.
    All those rude things directed towards Shatner are directly linked to his history with the particular subject, his history in Trek and his history in the public spotlight in general.
    Things that don't apply to random fans of Trek on the internet when faced with a similar question.

    Well I think that you can understand both sides. You're right to mislike it. I thought it was kind of fitting, but of course, if you think about it, you cannot lump everyone who criticises Shatner together in one sorry category. There was no insult intended from my part.

    Cameo? Nimoy had a good sized part.

    Or Shatner stands part way up a slope as Chris Pine's skin catches fire.

    Shatner: "YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE THE CHOSEN ONE !!!"

    And you are right to do so. Khan was retarded.

    Hehehe.

    :lol:

    Khan bleached his hair one time too many, I believe. Nothing to eat, no antibiotics, no clean underwear, but a vast supply of peroxide. How does that figure?

    This star trek movie it is to late for him to be in it. But I don't see no reason why he can't be in Star Trek 13. He can play Captain James Kirk grandfather Tiberius Kirk. He's about the right age anyway.

    I think the Tholians could get Shatner's Mirror Kirk to JJ Abrams universe. In the reimagined Mirror Universe, no one inspires Spock to become Emperor, so Kirk lives to a ripe old age, and gets into a battle with the Tholians, and like the USS Defiant, he gets sent over to the Abrams Trek Universe.

    Back in 2004, William Shatner pitched a Mirror Kirk story to the producers of Star Trek: Enterprise to celebrate Trek's 700th episode (which eventually became the totally different "In a Mirror, Darkly" two-parter)
