Post Bill Shatner?

So who wants to see Bill Shatner somewhere in the next STAR TREK movie? Just wondering!

I think It would be nice to give the guy at least a cameo! I know a lot of people don't like him however I am a bit of a Shatner fan! I mean the man is STAR TREK! What can I say?

I am very much a Shat fan but I don't want him wedged into a film just to have him. And I prefer the films move on and not look back.

I'll be happy if Bill is in the new movie if :
1. he is happy with it
2. it fits the movie, cameo or otherwise

meanwhile, go get your Star Trek badge from Frosted Flakes as I did

Not really. I think trying to work him in as Kirk would be so convoluted it would be absurd. I saw someone mention that he could play Kirk's uncle but why would Shatner want to do that? Any ideas JJ and crew floated to work him into the next movie would seem like a desparate attempt on his part to be the center of attention. After the success of this movie, JJ doesn't need him to legitimize the next.

Honestly, I might feel different had he been more supportive of this movie but I think JJ was right in making the movie with Nimoy and not Shatner.

No, I don't want to see Shatner in the next movie or the one after that...

I would like to see him as Captain Kirk throughout the whole movie. Not some situation like Spock either.

No thanks! There was a point to Nemoy, Shattner just wants attention. No Shattner anymore please.

Every reincarnation incorporates Spock. Like he is the one great saviour of the Universe. TOS was an ensemble, not a one man show.

Why not have Shatner? But please Captain, slim up a bit......
