It’s not a Star Trek movie, unless Mr. Shatner is Kirk. Not that I am a big trekkie, but I grew up watching Kirk and the Star Trek TV series, so I’m kind of got stuck with the starship and the original crews.
And, how can it be a true Star Trek resurrection without Kirk? Hmm, so ok, Kirk died at the end of the 1994’s Star Trek: Generations, but in a science fiction movie or TV, no one dies “completely”. There’s always a mishap that makes a comeback for someone.
The new ‘Star Trek’ movie is due for debut in theaters in December 2008, but it’s still not too late to revive Kirk.
