'I have done a movie for the future fans of Star Trek, not for the old' J.J. Abrams, today in Spain.

-The director and producer was fan in his youth of 'The Star Wars' but never he was him of 'Star Trek'-

I'am a Old Fan, and I do not want STAR TREK that be as,,,,SW, ok ?

admirer that trusted that never involved to a"SW", in a projectof STAR TREK, maybe that be the first one and time finalizes it.

If he's after new fans, that could only mean a Shat appearance.

Nothing would draw in new fans like a Shat surprise appearance. Think about the hype, it would be huge.

And how does that work, exactly? "Grandpa, who's that old guy? Wasn't he the lawyer on on that court show?"
"It's William Shatner, now get excited."

How would the Shat draw new fans to Trek? Shat is old Trek. Do you think non fans of Trek will become fans of trek because Shat has a cameo? Let me guess, people will say "Wow, I heard Shatner, the guy from Boston Legal, has a small part in the new Star Trek movie. I love his character on Boston Legal so I better watch this new movie!!" See how silly that sounds

Yeah, that sound silly, about as silly as saying, "Paul McCartney was that guy from Wings."

That's my point. How many Shat fans aren't aware that he played Kirk? Even if people are fans of Shats based on his current TV roles, they won't go watch a new Trek movie based solely on the fact he is in it (cameo?). Now if Oprah was the new Uhura....

Oh, yes, because mediocre tinsel garbage with a recycled plot is so much better than nothing at all. Especially in the event that said garbage results in nothing at all... right?

They should have left it alone until someone who actually cared about the property instead of his wallet and their bottom line came along.
