Shatner On Board for a New Trek?

by | December 15, 2005 | Comments

CanMag.com reports that Captain Kirk might be returning to the bridge of the Enterprise for the next "Star Trek" film. Not only that – he might be joined by Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard and Scott Bakula’s Johnathan Archer, of "The Next Generation" and "Enterprise," respectively.

The site claims that the idea to set the next "Trek" movie as a prequel, with the action centering on the students of the Starfleet Academy, has been trashed. Instead, they’re considering doing a sequel that will be set in the "Mirror" Universe – which we’ve seen in both "Star Trek" and "Enterprise" before – which will make it possible for several of the ‘captains’ to team up. (After all, there’s no rules/no continuity restrictions in the ‘Mirror’ universe.)

"Apparently Shatner was in talks to do a guest role on Enterprise, but it didn’t work out. Why? Apparently he wanted a) more money b) would rather do Trek films. Solution? The ideas for the episode of the “Enterprise” episode he was going to do will now be incorporated into a movie. Yep, Captain kirk’s back", says the site. "It’ll be Shatner, Captain Picard and maybe Archer".

Let’s just hope this new "Trek" movie is better than "Star Trek: Nemesis"!
