Believe me I've been in the 'Shatner should come back one more time' crowd for years now! I had an idea for a New Voyages/Continues episode set in the Nexus where Young Kirk would be showing Old Kirk events in his life, in a Wonderful Life/Christmas Carol-type thing. A Discovery Nexus thing could be interesting! If they have the right story they have to do it quick. More likely in the Kelvin Universe with Shatner as Old Pine than Kirk Prime, as suggested for Orci’s ST13. He was going to be Mirror ‘Tiberius’ or the Chef (a doppleganger who Daniels plucks out of time to stand in for Kirk at an historical event) in Enterprise S4 but I think there were money issues, so In A Mirror Darkly was made instead. This conversation has taken place so many times since 1994, but all roads lead to a brick wall. Is its a curse? But just outside of Trek: Over night I've been thinking and The Orville may be Bills best option. Have him as Captain Jase C Burke, flagship Captain on his last mission, just about to retire. A lauded hero who the ladies swoon for. Taking the Mick out of Shatner's image but not too much and a respectful homage. Ed is skeptical but ends up respecting Burke. Maybe by the end of the episode Burke finds a new purpose in life, so effectively a better finale than Generations. Kirk in all but name. If he does any of the above I want him on a ship in Starfleet/Planetary Union uniform one last time!!
