See what some of your fellow Trek fans had to say on the matter:

“The Shat got my vote.” – Scott Baker

“Nichelle Nichols should totally make an appearance... Uhura needs to be taken seriously.” – Brenna Hart

“Shatner might be cool in a cameo. After all, the new ST is set in alternate timeline/universe.” – Benjamin Sebelius Jensen

“I voted for Walter Koenig. Not only has he been in other Trek stuff, he was in Babylon 5. Not many sci-fi actors can do more than one. He’s a good actor and should get more votes.” – Steven Murphy

“George Takei.” – Sara Robertson

“None of them. The new timeline should survive on its own.” – Matthew Runyon

“Got to be Kirk... because he's dead...” – Jonathan Cohen

“I think it should be George Takei for Into Darkness and save William Shatner for the last one as a grand finale.” – Michael J. Engel
