The Wrath Of Shat - William Shatner Reflects On The Original Series And Says He Is Interested In Working With J.J. Abrams In Star Trek XII

But you're dead, Jim!

On second thought, it would be cool if they found a way for Captain Kirk to be pulled out of the Nexus and reprise his iconic role in the next film.

Could they do a Bobby Ewing thing and just say it was a dream?

I watch him in the dreary sitcom he is now in just because he is incredibly funny by himself. I'd love to see him in a well written movie spoof.

lol@that photo Cube..:)


Ok, doing the trekky greeting now :)

Cube, one of my biggest ST gripes is that NG just WILL NOT let the original cast go and stand on it's own.

I didn't like the double Spock, but I tolerated it. Now Shat is trying to butt in?!?

I think this post just made my head explode!

Jan: And have the rather portly Shatner pop out of the shower? Yikes! I don't think the world is ready for that scene.

I haven't seen him in the new sitcom (I did read the Twitter feed of the real dad), but if you want a funny Shatner/Trek spoof, look up Free Enterprise I found it very amusing.

WomanHonorThyself: The minute I saw it I knew I had to share it.

IWASNTBLOGGEDYESTERDAY: Live long and prosper back at ya!

Brooke: We all have our favorite characters and, naturally, want to see them most often.

With the exception of Data, I found many of the characters in TNG annoying. They had one strong woman in the cast and she chose to leave the show because she didn't get enough to do. They later got rid of Wesley and added Ensign Ro which was an improvement.

I don't know why, but TNG doesn't resonate with me on the same emotional level as TOS still does. Personally, I loved seeing the old Spock (Spock Prime) in the last movie. It made the movie for me.

As far as the next movie goes, I would love to see as many of the TOS crew in it as possible. They could throw in a few DS9 folks in too. I'm not going as far as adding anyone from VOY or ENT.

I'm sorry I made your head explode. I guess owe you a new keyboard ;-)

Being a huge fan of TOS, I love to see anyone from the original cast on any movie or series. They are what made Star Trek what it is today.

So, I say, let Captain Kirk come back. It's science fiction, anything can happen.

We have already lost too many greats from TOS, Gene Roddenberry (creator) Majel Barret, James Doohan, DeForest Kelly, Mark Lenard, too many and I miss them all.

Long live Star Trek!

I'd pay good money to see this! :-P

Brooke said...

Cube: I loved Data and hated what they did to him in the last movie. Ugh.

THE MOST ANNOYING character in all of Trek: Deanna Troi.

cube said...

Leticia: I agree. I want to see as much of them as possible. It's science fiction... they can make it so.

Karen Howes: Is the alternative paying bad money to see this?

cube said...

Brooke: I couldn't stand the emotion chip arc with Data either.

As far as the most annoying character in Trek goes, Troi is definitely one of them, but so is Wesley Crusher. I wasn't too fond of Neelix either.

Brooke said...

All annoying.

The emotion chip thing was rubbish. What happened to Data DEVELOPING humanity? Nah, let's just turn it on and off.


And B-4?!? The worst Trek thing EVAH.

I'd rather had them recreate a Lal (sp?) type droid from his own D&R and download him!
