Isn't it a Fleet Captain?
So Spock has a locket around his neck with Kirk's picture in it.
Just when you think Star Trek slash has died down.
That's an ironic choice of video for this, given that Harrison Ford still seems to want to play Indy.
Too soon. Too soon.
Just ONE thing?
Y'know, with the right script, it could be magic. Something philosophical and reflexive and bittersweet.
I really think Shatner just wants to get PAID to play Kirk.............
He can always be grandpa Tiberius George Kirk III growing weed on his Iowa farm for the Andorian market
I would go see that!
My personal objection to Shatner playing Kirk again is, I don't think he can do it anymore. Shatner has become too much of a personality rather than an actor, such that if he did show up onscreen, I would think "Shatner!" rather than "Kirk!"
It say a lot that when I hear "Kirk", I think of Chris Pine now.
Yeah, Kirk was a Fleet Captain, Scotty and McCoy were both full Commanders, and the bridge was clearly refit. That sketch (representing "Episode 81") takes place at the tail-end of the five-year mission, after some promotions have been handed out, but before the end of the mission.
Ensign Chekov's presence doesn't jibe well with The Animated Series though, which must occur before Kirk's promotion to Fleet Captain.
Can't say the same, Kirk is either Shatner on TV, or Shatner in the movies.
When I think of Pine, I think of him in other roles other than Kirk.
Going to multiple sites, Shatner's financial worth is above $100 million, and might be as high as $300 million. While he would expect to be paid, a paycheck is unlikely to be the main reason he would do Kirk again.
Greed is a powerful thing..........I remember money being a key sticking point on his returning before.
Wealthy people do not remain wealthy by turning down more money
True--but they also don't go broke by throwing a bone to the fandom that made them wealthy.
Shatner (and Nimoy) both had opportunities to return in Enterprise, that didn't happen.
In Trek 09 and the movie that was replaced with Beyond (which was fantastic btw) thre were mooted appearances that never happened.
I honestly think the ship has well and truly sailed, please prove me wrong.
No, thank you. I happen to think that hamifistedly inserting Leonard Nimoy into the first two re-boot films was a mistake that detracted from the story - and that was with a superior actor playing a superior character. The last thing we need now is a great big dollop of 'The Shat' inserted into any more of the franchise.
Premise ridiculous. You cannot kill the definition of Ho Yay.
maybe they could take a leaf from MCUs book - an opening flashback (or in this case alt-universe flashforward) of a CG deaged 80s Shatner (as opposed to using Shatner in his 80s). maybe it could be done for the whole TOS crew- an opening sequence set at some point in the Trek II-VI era (or shortly after) with them in the maroon uniforms on the NCC1701A - like a mini Star Trek 'VII' with Shatner, Koenig, Takei, Nichols reprising their roles with those CG mocap things but other actors portraying Spock, Bones, Scotty- CG Rogue One style. In that way the Trek V photo at the end of Beyond would be like a foreshadow to the next movie. How would it fit in the following movie though? Would have to be some interdimentonal/timetravel plot (like what they are intending for 4)
With Paramount wanting a lower budget.........that one scene might break the bank.
Terminator 5 managed to do a great job on a 150m budget
