That was 20 something years ago. I've never met him, but interviews and books seem to think he has changed his view towards fan and trek in general. Back then, he couldn't get any roles in other movies because all anyone saw was James Kirk not Shatner. So, in a sense, that is probably why he had the despisement because it didn't allow him to grow as an actor. But it seems he has since embraced trek and glad it happened.

The only way I can see The Shat in the new movie is if Spock is watching a vid of Kirk in some form. An old letter, historic database, whatever.

I'm getting tired of all this Shatner business and I've lost a great deal of respect for Bill. Much like Hillary Clinton he just doesn't know when to shut up and admit defeat and get behind the party!
