sorry, I am a Sci-Fi fan and a life-long fan of star trek, but to get worked up over it and actually sign the petition, will signify that my life has hit a low that I am not prepared to deal with.
























You know I'm only joking and busting on you.

OUCH!!
I don't believe that I am "worked up over it"...(maybe I am...?) Just really want this to happen....My life is far from hitting a low...been there, bounced back...but, hey, thanx anyway....one sci-fi fan to another...

I'm in!

We'll get a movie about how Kirk has to break out of the crazy farm on earth he's in - Spock has been sending him telepathic messages from another planet that is in peril and everyone thinks he went looney.

He has to stow away on the ship that is going that direction anyway because of another peril that must be addressed. He can be the fun side story for the new movie. And in the end, he and Spock will save the planet and then they can die, again.

He's Dead! The movie is set 200 years after the original series and humans only last just past the century mark (in the story line). Besides he died (twice!) in the first TNG movie.

Spock is a Vulcan and lives, like, 400 years. In the current movie he's about 200y/o. Still considerred by any Vulcans to be a juvenile delinquent for running off and joing the circus.... Errrr, Star Fleet. Got a lot of superciliousness left in him.

Actually, the movie is more of a prequel...taking place around the time of the ENTERPRISE'S first voyages...and, some future/time travel with original Spock who is in the future some 200 years....but...yes, Kirk died in his time,(recorded as dead the first time...but actually alive in the nexus) then, was discovered alive and well 80 years later in a temporal nexus, where Capt.Picard persuades Kirk to leave the nexus, help him save a planet full of civilized beings from certain death, then, Kirk is killed and buried under a pile of rocks. BUT! this is science fiction, time travel is involved, he CAN be saved from death, in MANY ways, and, in the end, reunited with Spock in the 24th century. Shatner wrote a whole series of Trek novels, where he actually was resurected...excellent readind, if your into that stuff. Point is, it can be done, even Lenard Nimoy has stated the film would be far better WITH Shatner in it as Kirk...and, Shatner has stated he WANTS to reprise his role as the great legendary Captain one last time...please, sign the petetion, thank you!

Thanks Redneck Joe.

Hopkins61, Ok, it does make more sense if there are prequel scenes but Shatner's physique (like many of us) has changed drasticaly with age. I suppose if they gave him a girdle and oxygen, he might do justice to the character. It's more likely though to generate the same snickerring as Joan Crawford filling in for her daughter Christina, on that soap opera.

Besides, I never liked Kirk anyway.

Nothing can beat Shat in Priceline's commercial when he says "you know what to do, dog. Bust a MOVE!!!"

I like Shatner too, but Patrick Stewart is in a whole other league as an actor and elevated the role and the show to a new level in Next Generation. The best of the Trek series IMO.

Had not heard about the new movie-when is it supposed to come out?

The movie is due out christmas day, 2008. It is being produced and directed by J.J.Abrahms, the same guy that is in on the creation of the hit television series, "LOST" Lenard Nimoy will have a major role as Spock in it...and, while I respect your opinion on Patric stewart, IMO, William Shatner is the CAPTAIN OF STAR TREK!!!! I think the original cast and crew had the best chemistry togeather, especially in the big screen movies. If you go to TREKWEB.COM, you can find out alot more info, if your interested...but, please, will you sign the petition...thanx!!!
