Seems like it's a little late to be talking unless it's a very small part. Anyway I saw this story on AICN and I'm not surprised Trekmovie.com jumped on it.

Nimoy giving his Vulcan salute at the shuttle landing seems like a bit much.

The most plausible way to return would be a story connected to the Vulcan fallout, but I don't know if that forms part of the sequel story.

That said, Nimoy does seem to be willing to do favours for Abrams (his little bits of work on 'Fringe' for instance) so who knows. It can't be a major thing IF there's anything real behind the remark.

As much as I loved Nimoy being in Trek09 I would rather he wasn't in the next one, I agree with Horatio in that the passing the torch was done in the 1st film and doesn't need to continue.

Is quite ironic though how he could be open for a cameo here when he refused to do one for Generations.

I guess it could depend on what it's nature is.

If I recall from his '95 book he didn't do Generations because Spock would have had no real purpose in the cameo. It was meaningless in terms of the rest of the film. Which would have been true enough based on Scotty and Chekov's appearances.

Seems reasonable. I don't think the movies need him anymore. I wouldn't dismiss a future movie just on account of Nimoy being considered, however I would wonder what they were thinking.

It sort of is. But Generations had issues with or without Nimoy, I think all of us can agree. So did STV, TMP and early drafts of STII (all being projects that Nimoy was initially reluctant to commit to). Not much is known about Phase II's development prior to Nimoy opting out.

And we know he passed on directing it as well (though in their defense, I suppose their offer to him may have been predicated on his agreeing to appear as Spock). How much does he talk about this in his book?

Not in this movie. The next movie is a possibility though.

If he's there, I would hope that there would be a point to it. Don't just put him in there for the hell of it. I think I'm leaning towards Horatio's way of looking at it. The torch is passed, let the new crew have their spotlight now.

Agree. We had Spock Prime as a nice send-off for that crew, but let them shine on their own now and see how things go.
