Should William Shatner have appeared in ENT?

I think there was an idea for William Shatner to appear in Enterprise season 4 in a three episode story arc but it never came about, whether he was supposed to come back as James T Kirk or an ancestor of Kirk's, I'm not sure

I'm not thinking about it like he necessarily should have. And I don't quite understand as who.
But that might have turned some "haters" into "likers", though not all of those.

He would have probably played Kirk's grandfather, just like when Brent Spiner was on the show.

I really liked Shatner's Kirk (second only to Archer). I would have liked it if they could have come up with a good story.

Shatner was approached to play Chef in TATV but the $$$ did not work out.

It depends on the role.  It could be really offensive like Riker's appearance in TATV or really cool like when the guy that plays Data (forgot his name AND too lazy to go look it up) appearing as Soong.

No bashing, I really like Kirk, but Shatner's acting can be a little over the top, so I guess it would depend on the role he was given.  Since he seems to have a high opinion about himself, I can't imagine he would be satisfied with an understated role.  Seems like he could have helped ENT by bringing in the Trek audience (HIS FANS) - seems like he could have taken less $$ - if the story is true about the deal falling through due to $$.  Isn't he so popular/doesn't he have such a great career because of his Trek audience?  Maybe he didn't like the competition from the new Captain.

Sorry.  I seriously mean no offense to Shatner fans.  I used to love Kirk/Shatner until I met him, then I lost respect for him!  I am sure some of you probably have great memories of him or think he is a really great person, but Kirk yes, Shatner no.

wait a minute, that dude with the beard is you? Is Shatner standing up or sitting down cause if he's standing up, you must be pretty tall

What was he like? Is he the arrogant insensitive ill mannered egotistic jerk that a lot of people say he is or is he a nice guy?

He was very nice I was only with him in the photo for about 45 sec. I'm a guy and he shook my hand and said hello.

When I got his autograph I got a great reaction from him when I handed him an 8X10 of Denny Crane to sign.

That's cool.  Part of my opinion of him was formed while waiting in line watching him with the other fans.

I will look at your picture later!  I am glad you had a positive experience.
