I have to think that the idea of adding more than Nimoy reprising their roles would cause problems with the film being a success. This is about restarting/reimagining, moving forward again. Harking back to the past films might excite some of the ST 'base', but alienate new viewers that redoing the show can bring in.

This movie seriously runs the risk of alienating the TNG/DS9/VOY fan base that never watched TOS esspecially internationally, I'm from the UK and TOS seems to be concidered camp and corny here. The TOSR shows aren't even shown here.

There is a new channel been launched called Virgin 1 that is trying to win a audience showing things like the Terminator series and the Unit it has the tag "The New Home of Star Trek" showing ENT/TNG/DS9/VOY with DS9 showing every weeknight note that TOS doesn't feature.

While it would be marvelous to watch that incredible actor don
that character again, I hope it is not too scandalous to suggest
that we might be ready for fresh faces, fresh voices, fresh
interpretations.

All that said, we are dealing with TOS characters in their much
younger modes...there may not be all that much give and take
with the characters, but ah, originality is an often-cherished
approach, I have noticed.

Stewart himself, maybe not...

But someone with his same last name, that would be a good idea.

However, I thought Jon-Luc was the first to go to starfleet, is that not right?

And thats right, too.
I am from germany and TOS was treated like a children´s program.
The first "serious" ST Series was TNG (and I still kinda think like that.)

Well, since this is about Star Trek and not specifically about the original series I don't see why he can't play a role. I loved his character so much, I would never mind seeing him again.

While I like TNG and Stewart as Picard, I dont think he really belongs in a TOS movie, though a cameo before Spock travels back in time wouldnt be appalling. If Stewart is still alive in about 20 years, the studios hires someone to step all over TNG by rebooting it, and they try and cast Vin Diesel as Picard or someone equally absurd when Stewart is still capable of playing Picard (even as an aged Admiral/Ambassador in the future) then I will be the first to say he should be in it.
