William Shatner should appear in the next sequel as Tiberius Kirk, James T Kirk`s Grandfather. Family resemblance would be perfect (Kirk in TOS would look just like his grandfather), and Shatner`s current age would be just right. I am sure that a lot of Trek fans would like to see him aboard any star ship. Perhaps even as a captain at some of the ships before Enterprise? And he would not have to travel back in time (which was lame)!

Welcome to the boards, Zaphaell. I would be inclined to agree with you with that idea. Some people on this board are gonna rap you in the mouth, though. But don't sweat it. Like I said, welcome aboard.  :cool:

The Shat is Star Trek. He should be in the next movie. I like the idea of him playing the grandfather.

The only way to have Shatner in this movie would be the Grandfather idea.  But, Shatner is Shatner, and might be insulted with a cameo appearance and not a pivotal role like in GENERATIONS.

I prefer Shatner not to be in it, JJ, stand on your own two feet.

You know that really is a good idea for sure alot better then how they had Spock in the last one. But then we on here as fans like it. So it will not happen!

I don't think I would like to see Shatner play Tiberius Kirk.  He's James T. Kirk.  How awful to see Chris Pine walk up to Bill Shatner and say "Hi, Grandpa."

If Shatner is not in the sequel I will not mind but if he is in the sequel then there are some good ways to do it. Maybe it would be good for Shatner to play a Kirk ancestor but I also think it would be effective to modify the deleted Shatner scene from the 1st draft. I expressed this idea before but here it is again for anyone who did not yet hear it.

I think if Shatner is in the sequel then they should also have Nimoy one more time. This would be like a reinforcement of "the old guard" and where the 1st film had one original cast the 2nd film would have two! It will continue the story to show a brief scene where Spock is helping the Vulcan refugees and takes a break in a nearby cave. During this break he can find solace with a hologram device which will feature Shatner as Kirk. It will be like when they are camping. This can be a good reminder of his old friend and even though it is a cameo it will show this very meaningful relationship. If this does not happen I will not be bothered but I think it is a nice way to show some of the original cast.

Good idea too! Point is to see some Shatner`s performance, that we haven`t seen yet. New would be great, but those who say that Shatner could be offended by the idea to play someone`s grandpa, could be right too. :( (although, I personally think that William is too professional for that). Then some deleted scenes would be a weak satisfaction, but satisfaction after all.

As soon as you would hear Shatner`s reply to that "Hi, Grandpa", you would change your mind! :)

Shatner is also playing a dad or grandpa in that new show I am looking forward to all his responses on (Bleep) My Dad Says.

It could be some other ancestor, like a great uncle or some other Kirk that Jim Kirk never previously met.

I still really like the scene that they wrote for him (in all it's slashy goodness), and would like to see it filmed with Shatner and Nimoy and then their story would be complete and Pine and Quinto can take over fully. Just my silly fannish wish.  :)

Knowing the Shat I doubt he'd take any role but a starring one. Sides they already used Nimoy to bridge the gap between the JJverse and the Prime one. Shatner doesn't nor needs to be in any more Star Trek movies. He's got to be what 70 something now? It was getting ridiculous watching him and his girdle by the time Undiscovered Country came out.
