All I'm saying is given a statement that Shatner won't be in the film or not, we can't rule out a Shatner appearance until we see the entire film. The odds are he isn't in the movie, but I'm just saying it would be a huge surprise if done correctly.

True. And an important point: it's very easy to include Shatner in this film; it's just much harder to have him play James T. Kirk. That's the only real sticking point at all.

A good possibility of seeing Shatner as Kirk in the movie would be throught one of older Spock's (Nimoy) dreams and he sees Kirk and they strike up a conversation and he becomes at peace at the fact that he lost his best friend on Enterprise B. I'm sure Spock wasn't too happy with that, but it did make Kirk go out like a hero, and his second death did the same. The list of possible ways to get Shatner in goes on, but to get him in as Kirk is a littler harder but I don't see him wanting to play another character other than the iconic James Tiberius Kirk.

That's a part of the problem, Shatner is kind of stubborn, vain, and pricey...

Shatner can't be anybody but Kirk and think about it , it is a time-travel story why not go back and save him at the end of Generations while you are the way to stop the Romulan baddies from altering the time line.

Spock is going to need help and he can't rely totally on his past self to help he is going to need someone else so why not an older more experiened Captain Kirk.

He may be Vain, and Stubborn, but I do not think he can be too picky with salary these days, thanks to priceline.com ads.

Great picture Sir Num Nums. He already said he wants to be in the movie, so if asked I'm sure he'll jump at the role.

LOL! Thanks for the image, you are right, but he also knows who will butter his bread, and Star Trek has been his ace in the hole.
