After the nuclear holocaust, the only thing left will be cockroaches and speculation that William Shatner might appear in the next Star Trek film from J.J. Abrams. This rumor just will not die. Now, Chronicles Network is heaping a captain's log onto the fire by stating that Shatner and Abrams are actually scheduling meetings with each other to see how this can work. Of course, Chronicles mentions no inside source at all, just presenting the nebulous meetings as hard fact, when it all sort of sounds like cloud talk to me.
The decision will ultimately be a creative one, but it would seem to me that the torch was already passed (in a strong way) to the new crew by Leonard Nimoy as Spock in the 2009 relaunch. With that in mind, should William Shatner even appear in Star Trek XII (or Star Trek 2 or whatever it ends up being called)? Is it time for the next adventure of the USS Enterprise to offer a completely clean break from the original cast or should they find a way to work Shatner in as Kirk for one last hurrah on the big screen?
