Shatner And Nimoy In Trek 3?

1 min read


If Roberto Orci has his way, then fans will see both Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner in the next Star Trek movie.

While Nimoy has been in the other two movies, Shatner has not taken part in the Abrams rebooted Star Trek movies.

According to Badass Digest, “I have learned that the script for Star Trek 3 includes a scene that reteams Shatner and Nimoy onscreen as Kirk and Spock for the first time in canon since 1991’s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. It would be a pretty huge moment for fans of the franchise, and likely the last time we’ll ever see Shatner as James T. Kirk in official continuity.”

Will the actors sign on for this, or will it go the way of the cameo written for Shatner in Star Trek (2009)?

Time will tell. Until then, treat this as a rumor.

  1. Hopefully at teh end of the film Admiral, Starfleet, James T Kirk brings the revamped USS Enterprise, NCC-1701Z, thru a wormhole into the JJVerse to rescue real Spock. No need to explain how Kirk lived after Generations, the man has cheated death so any times it’s become expected. THey pick up the real Spock and, just before heading into the wormhole to return to the real Trek universe, they kick a shuttle craft full of red matter out of the shuttle bay, destroying the JJVerse forever. Then, upon returning to the real time line, real Spock could do a massive mind meld with all of us via subspace, erasing the memory of this nasty reboot from all of our memories forever

  2. This is a FanBoy wish list that seems to come up as every movie is about to go into production; Orci and Abrams would never put that much thought into plot development. Net: I’ll believe it when I see it.

    If you search YouTube, you can find all these fan-made movies that are nothing but wishful compilations of movie clips. Someone was bored.

  3. It would be the franchise’s 50th anniversary for Christ’s sake, they almost have to put Shatner in it somehow.

  4. Shatner is playing Kirk as a joke nowadays, so Mr. Orci would need to be a very STRONG director to make him behave and play it straight.

    Or maybe he can get Mr. Nimoy to lean on him; I remember in that four-way interview that Whoopi Goldberg conducted, Shatner was dominating the conversation and taking every question for himself until Mr. Nimoy quietly put a hand on Shatner’s arm … and Bill SHUT UP. Damn, Mr. Nimoy really DOES have crazy Vulcan powers if he can shut Shatner up. 🙂

    I think Quinto and Pine do an excellent job with what they’ve been given to play, but I have a lot of problems with the characters they’ve been given to play. The Kirk of the first two reboot movies was the public stereotype of Kirk, rather than the Kirk that was actually shown on the screen during those 79 wonderful episodes. Kirk was portrayed as rule-ignoring child with ADHD, when that’s so NOT who Kirk is. The REAL Kirk is a controlled, mature man who takes the rules seriously, who inspires by his courage, his morality, his love for his ship and crew, and his amazing flashes of intuition.

    Even worse than the reboot Kirk was a crying, screaming, murderous Spock, one who appeared to be a moody human who just happened to have
    pointed ears. The REAL Spock is a coolly logical scientist, a pacifist, and a VULCAN, one who inspires by his intelligence, his fortitude, his loyalty, his excellent ethics, and his encyclopedic knowledge of everydamnedthing.

    While I would love to see Shatner and Nimoy in the third reboot movie because I will always love them (especially Mr. Nimoy), what I want even more than that is for the third reboot movie to be a well-written exploration and adventure tale featuring a MATURE captain and a VULCAN first officer. In other words, I want to see the real Kirk and Spock — regardless of who portrays them — and not characters who bear their names but not their personalities.

  5. If they are going to reboot the series, then reboot it. The inclusion of Nimoy is. Watering it down. Don’t bring in Shatner.
