What about Mirror Kirk returning from the near future?

Nope. No more time travel. Keep doing it and they would have to rename it 'Time Trek'.

If they really really want Shatner they could come up with some part in the story that takes place in Shat-Kirks time and tie the two together. Maybe the first ten minutes that sets up the story. Some kind of confrontation that is a direct result of what he did as a young man. Shat-Kirk wins but its a sad or remorseful one. Then do the big "Star Trek: Whatever" opening. How to do that with a happy ending knowing whats to come would be tough.

I dunno. It wouldnt be the 'original' Shat-Kirk but good enough I suppose just to figure out a plausible way to get the actor in. Time travel wouldnt be involved either. Certainly its a matter of making it a real part of the story and not some kind of addition that doesnt matter to the rest of it. Not an easy thing to do.

The last 10 minutes to suggest the end of the Pine-Kirk pyrrhic victory working out swimmingly years later would be easier but I dont know if ending a movie with Shat-Kirk would work. If the writers could make it a compelling part of a story that really helps then I would do it for its own sake. Maybe whatever ending in his retirement sharing a drink with his old foe.

Just brainstorming without any thought as to what the story would be or if it would be a good one.

How would Pine and Shatner get on that's the question I don't want Shatner's Kirk beating the crap out of the young Pine's Kirk.

Since they missed their Shatner opportunity for the first one, I will only take a Shatner appearance that isn't James T. Kirk. The only way I might accept a cameo is if the story is framed by Shatner-Kirk (not Prime Kirk, just older alternate Kirk) reminiscing on the past or something like that.

Yea it would have to be at the end. I had a brain lapse and completely forgot they did the Shatner-beginning movie setup, just in reverse. He saved the day then it went to Picard and the gang in the future.

It wasnt all that long ago that many people said they wouldnt accept a reboot. Certainly not an alternate universe. Alot of them changed their minds.

Would the crew meet Prime Kirk or would it be a flashback just wondering.

I'm just wondering why you're back to resurrecting dead threads more than anything else.
