William Shatner, aka captain James Tiberius Kirk, is apparently NOT appearing in the new Star Trek movie. He wants to be in it though, stating ‘I couldn’t believe it. I’m not in the movie at all’.
One of the problems according to director JJ Abrams is that Kirk died in the Star Trek movie Generations. But in science fiction, you can never truly die. So apart from ‘getting a life’, as The Shat would say, we can only do one other thing: ask Abrams to bring the real Kirk back to Star Trek! Even Denny Crane would do.
