A Trekkie's Wet Dream!

Star Trek director J.J. Abrams is open to casting William Shatner in a potential Trek sequel!

Abrams revealed on Friday that he wouldn't mind breaking the canon of the series by bringing Shatner's character of James T. Kirk back from the dead! Because…they created new rules to play by in the latest Trek film!

"I wouldn't rule out anything," said J.J. "The point of creating this independent timeline is to not have the restrictions we had coming into this one. And one of those restrictions was that Kirk was dead."

Exciting!

As well as Capt. Kirk, Abrams also hopes to bring original Star Trek super-villain Khan Noonien Singh back to the series.

Says J.J.: "The fun of this [new alternate Trek reality] is that the destiny of these characters is in their hands - it's not constrained by the pre-existing films or TV series… The idea, now that we are in an independent timeline, allows us to use any of the ingredients from the past - or come up with brand-new ones - to make potential stories."

Well, that is if a sequel is even made!

But judging by the major $$$$$ Trek raked in, we'd put our money on a Trek trilogy! At least!

    The new movie is excellent and doesn't need Shatner at all.
    Keep Bill outta it!!!

    Yes! The new timeline means Shatner's Kirk could be alive. But forget about Khan: no one could replace Montalban (well, except for Dana Carvey in that SNL sketch).

    NO! This Star Trek was the best in ages. Be Creative, enough with Khan, there are other villains. That was the problem with the last superman movie….We'd already seen Lex Luthor, there were many other villains to choose from but they went back to the same old one. Khan was great in Star Trek 2. Don't rehash an old plot. As for Shatner. Only if it fits, he can tend to really cheese it up. The series doesn't need that anymore.

    I agree w/Ociannia420, put him on a reality show, the one called "I'M AN ASSHOLE, GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!

    In the sequel to the prequel, Shatner plays a hot air balloon during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    Come on, Perez! Give us a Captain James Kirk photo, will you?
    Even just William Shatner at his age has better pistures!
