    Kirk in his 90s meets Picard at the academy, which is just the kind of STID-ish story Bad Robot might do. This Picard is not so lucky and dies in ‘27.

    The cryogenic thing - not necessarily frozen in ice but a machine thart holds Kirk in time, could be the crux of the plot - part of a larger device, if discovered it could be catastrophic? Connected to Iconian gateways or something?

    Actually, Patrick Stewart seems older than him and looks it despite Shatner being the older one.

    Honestly to me Patrick Stewart has always looked older than he is going all the way back to the start of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    In 1987 he was 47. But honestly he looked in his late 50s early 60s even back then.

    I know how I would end it, too...

    Picard and company, trying to find a way to free him from the Nexus, and return him to his proper time, or secure him a place in the 24th.

    Kirk: "Its too late for me..... My place....is in your history. My life.... my adventures, my friends.... have already happened, it exists in your past. There is no going back. My time is over..... but yours..... your time is now. Make the most of it. Remember, the human adventure..... is just beginning. " With a sly grin, he looks towards a 23rd century turbolift door. He is right where he wants to be. He clasps Jean Lucs arm, and wishes them godspeed, then steps through the doors. Inside, you can see a 23rd century starship bridge, the backs of a couple officers visible, the command chair empty. Familiar TOS sound effects. Kirk steps through the door. The last thing you hear before the door closes with a swooosh..... "Status Report, Mr. Spock." In the Nexus, there are always.... possibilities....

    I like that! A lot! One quibble - does Kirk ever actually say "Status report, Mister Spock"? Decker does, or close. I don't remember Kirk ever doing so.
