Nimoy called for Star Trek XI?

StarTrek.jpgAccording to Leonard Nimoy himself his agency has already been called by the head of production at Paramount about Star Trek XI to let them know that they might want some involvement. Does this mean we'll see the real Spock back in the new Star Trek from J.J. Abrams?

Here's what Nimoy said in an interview with JAM! Movies through Coming Soon:

"The head of production at Paramount called my agency to tell them about this project and they are aware of Bill's and my contribution to the franchise, and they'd like us to know they might want some involvement. It was all very, very general

They might possibly want Bill and I to set up the story as a flashback. But that's just conjecture on my part."

Yes, conjecture it is, but how else could they be involved? Starting of a flash back, or ending of the film, or even some bizarre time travel shennanigans in the middle. I doubt that actually, flash backs sound good, or just a token walk through part to give them the nod they deserve.

What do you think, should they appear in the film? Is there a tradition to uphold or should the filmmakers really look far from the original to revitalise the series? I think a nice nod would be good, but anything too much and this could turn into a sill time related story, or too much cheese and nostalgia. More probable is it is a courtesy call well ahead of decisions being made.



Everyone is saying this is not going to work. Well, I think Star Trek XI is going to rise and shine! To me, in fact, The Original Series is the best by far, and Spock and Kirk are the characters I feel closer to. This movie could be a tremendous homage to that amazing stories, and I beg Mr. Nimoy to abandon all his reservations about appearing in the Universe that made him so famous.
