How to get Shatner into the movie
 
**MINOR PLOT SPOILERS**


Well? JJ?

Wasn´t he offered a cameo already and turned it down because Nimoy has a much larger role? I think i read something like that somewhere.
Anyway, with the writer strike there is no way to write him in. Fortunately.

Yeah, thats right, I don't think JJ can make changes to the script by himself, so reguardless, it doesn't look like he's going to be in the film...

No Shat is good

Kirk died 3 films ago :lol:

bringing shatner in would be corny and ridiculous. kirk is dead, and any cameo they put him in will just feel like they are trying to work too hard to add him and could ruin the film. if the story works just as well without him, then don't change a thing.

Yeah but everyone dies... This whole story could've taken place before his death... Granted, it would be kind of odd seeing him in the movie when you see him die... *shrugs*

I agree .

Shat is kind of an arse anyway .

And it just wouldnt fit in IMO

Nimoy is a classy choice and was awesome in his TNG appearances , as a matter of fact his being in this film kind of vindicates it for me .

Shatner would've made me barf

He died on screen

It's funny how on one hand trek fans want cannon to be paramount (no pun intended) but are willing to let it slide when it suits them

:p

He refused to do a cameo. And frankly, I don't think he can pull off kirk anymore. I love the guy, but Nimoy still looks like spock

William Shatner is not on the cast list, and I've heard that this is due to the events of Star Trek Generations.

That is very unfortunate... I woud have loved to see him in action again. And I wonder if it would be possible for Kirk to have survived "Generations". Can he still live in the Nexus? If he can, then: Can he leave the nexus to every point in time and space that he wishes?
