Sorry, this film's a done deal. You don't have to like it, but there's little point in pretending something will change it either.

JJ, Orci, Kurtzman and the whole team have made their choices, knowing full well it's impossible to please every existing TREK fan out there. No one could, and that's a reality worth accepting as well.

I woud expect no such thing- it would only prolong the release date even more. I was just making a clandestine comment about how a fair number of fans (not all, not most) feel about what we know so far (not commenting on or trashing a movie I have not yet seen).

Was that all politicaly correct enough for everyone (so as not to single out any individuals or try to impose my feelings on canon, continuity, Trek in general, or the boycott of this film... or Shatner being in the film, or the fact that Chekov and Pike are on the ship together, or the secondary hull, or the length of Spock's ears (did that cover most of it)? on anyone else).

I'm gonna have to wear thicker soled shoes with all the broken glass in this place.

Shatner had his "extra" Trek moment in the TNG Generations movie. I noticed he didn't feel like Generations would be a disaster because Nimoy was not going to be in it. He should have just shut up and wished JJ, Nimoy, and the flim his best.

It is not like Bill Shatner is sitting around in a nursing home looking for work. He has had great success on Boston Legal which is rare for an actor his age.

He has wished the film all the best.....although he has commented a number of times(!) he's disappointed not to be in it.

Ah yes, I hope he was too. And I also hope that he comes to this forum, sees my signature and is encouraged to keep doing what he's doing.

Funny thing to me is that JJ and company are pretty much throwing canon out the window and changing everything we know about Star Trek. But refused to put Shatner in the movie citing canon issues that his character was killed in "Generations". Explain THAT.

It depends on how important each canon point is. Death of a main character (like Kirk) seems to me to be a major canon point. Kirk being able to drive and where the ship was built is piddly canon points that can easily fall under Roddenberry's own rule of "revisionist thinking".

Methinks there could be quite a debate over what is considered "piddly canon points"! Oh wait, there already is! That's the nature of the beast i guess.

Since we're once again posting about the Shat, I found this nice little YouTube tribute. Almost like "Bill Shatner....this is your life!" Enjoy.

I was trying find the funny "Boston Legal" clip of Denny Crane being interviewed in the conference room.
