    Sure why not give the guy a small cameo? It would be a great easter egg! R2-D2 had a role in Star Trek 2009 so I see no reason why Captain Kirk can't make an appearence in Episode VII. :p Count me officially on board for this idea, Echo!

    I would love to see Trek actors in SW and SW actors in Trek!

    Thankfully, I don't think it will help happen. If Shatner couldn't get into STAR TREK I don't see him in SW.

    Gotta love the stupid media. Shatner has a wicked sense of humor as usual, and they start with the headlines "Shatner wants role in new Star Wars." [face_laugh]

    I like Shatner. He's a funny guy who's not above a little self-deprecating humor and all, but as far as a cameo appearance in the ST? While I woudn't be fussed about it either way, I just don't see the need for it.

    It would actually be great, although I doubt it will happen. He is a great actor.

    Oh God Yes. I would love this. Especially after his 'feud' with Carrie Fisher last year.
    And don't forget his golden moment.
    "Dear Mr Shatner, ...we want you to open the show..... Star Wars?! Hey wait a minute wait a minute, I can do Star Wars...."

    Have him play a wisecracking admiral in the New Republic (or whatever it's going to be called) armed forces. Would be amusing if his second-in-command had pointy ears or used the word "logical" a lot.

    They managed to shoehorn ET, Willow and Indiana Jones into TPM, so why not?

    I have always liked Shatner. However, I think he is joking. On a seriousness note, we need to keep the franchises separate. I would only favor a cameo for him if he was not recognizable. This has to be a serious film effort and needless cameos and other stunts will only cheapen the franchise.

    I adore Shatner, but seeing him on the screen for so much as a frame would so take me out of the movie...

    Simon Pegg and George Tekai were already in TCW. So it's already happened.
