Star Trek Rumor

Because I love you

George Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu on the original “Star Trek” and now serves as announcer on Sirius’ Howard Stern radio show, recently had lunch with J.J. Abrams, Takei tells Sirius’ Howard 100 News.Asked if he would be in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Trek” feature with Leonard Nimoy, Takei would only issue a “no comment.”

Is Abrams to reunite members of the original cast? William Shatner has admitted he and Abrams met on the “Boston Legal” set shortly before Abrams’ involvement in the “Star Trek” franchise was announced – but both Abrams and Shatner continue to deny that Shatner will be in the movie, which reportedly deals with time travel and hits cinemas in 2009.

When asked why he won’t be in Abrams’ movie, Shatner (who turns 77 in less than a month) likes to point out that his character, Jim Kirk, died in the seventh “Star Trek” feature.

Shatner has co-written a slew of novels for Simon & Shuster that deal with a resurrected Kirk subsequent to the events of “Star Trek: Generations.”

  1. I actually feel very loved right now… more than in recent days. ::sigh:; I love Sulu.

    And I still cry everytime I watch Generations (my favorite ST-TNG feature), despite knowing in advance that Kirk will die.

    As in any fictional series- no one is ever really dead.

    Cognitive Dissonance- Better than reading the papers.

  2. So randomly today, which hasn’t happened in ages, people clicked over from your blog to mine. I don’t know what link they’re using… but it was several of them. I was quite surprised (pleasantly of course).
