Keep in mind Shatner's ego and that he likes to talk a lot...I would take his comments on future Star Trek projects with a grain of salt.

Agreed, bluetiger. Berman and Braga ran ST into the ground. A new series would help bring life back to the franchise, to convince an audience that the glory days of ST aren't behind in the 60's and early TNG days, but are ahead. Wow, that sentence was tortured, but I don't feel like editing it, and you know what I mean... The critical element is not the beloved characters, but the science fiction. The space politics can be there; throw in some Klingons and Romulans, but get back to the unknown, the "strange new worlds" we were promised. In a strange way, Berman and Braga had good ideas with Voyager and Enterprise; they were just too incompetent to pull it off. I betcha that Spock is in the film because Kirk is dead, and he's in the present day, reflecting on Kirk's life. Continuity not violated. Hoping for this best for this film, regardless. I'll be there opening night.

I could handle him being Sarek, but I'd like to see the movie as a flash back and him still being spock.

PopeyesBitch where are you getting you "news" from? There was NEVER talk about a DS9 movie, there was NEVER serious talk about a Kirk returning movie. Shatner wanted to bring Kirk back in a TV movie, movie or novel, but that was only him. The only way I see him fitting in and not Kirk is that Spock is still alive (TNG/DS9/Voy time) and is talking about the past (pre TOS time). So Kirk is dead, Spock is not.

Given Abrams' writing/directing style, it's conceivable that Nimoy could play a "present day" Spock and the bulk of the film flashes back to his first adventure with Kirk in deep space. I personally prefer the idea of having him play Sarek since my understanding is that this film is a re-boot and not a prequel. I suppose it's also possible that somewhere in the film the young Spock meets an older version of himself, played by Nimoy.

I can't see a reboot working too well, especially as a movie. There's 28 years worth of tv shows and 10 movies already made about Star Trek. I don't see the point of getting rid of all that just so you can have characters named Kirk and Spock again. Re-imagining the series is a fine idea, but go forward with it.

Back around the time of Nemesis (could have been a great movie... but dropped the ball badly) there was talk of Riker/Troi having their own ship/TV show. I think that idea could have worked. And like was mentioned... I think Voyager and Enterprise had the right idea, but were missing something. (If I knew what it was... I'd be working in Hollywood right now.) As an aside that really doesn't matter: No one probably remembers the scene, but they made a big deal in Nemesis about Picard being stabbed in the heart as a cadet and his clone never going through that experience. If you will recall from the TV show, when Picard was stapped he looked down at the spear and laughed at it. I think they missed a potentially great moment in the Nemesis movie when the Picard clone was stabbed but didn't look down at the thing impaling him and laughing.

Shatner and Nimoy both need to be in this as the Star Trek I through VI movie-era versions of "old Kirk" and "old Spock". They should be used as a framing devise, with them tellig the story of their younger selves. That is the smart way to make the new movie.

Start a new series - base it on the New Frontier book series, new captain, new ship, and it has a few characters from the Next Gen to help it cross over......That is all!

For the Canadians on here... Bill Shatner says, make friends with fibre... :)
