One of the many reasons director JJ Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie worked so well was the way in which they managed to make Leonard Nimoy part of the story, while also setting up his replacement. Now that things are up and running in this parallel Trek universe though, don’t expect to see any other members of the original Enterprise crew in the next one.
411 claims they’ve heard from sources close to the production who confirm that none of the previous Trek casts will be invited on to the set for the new film. They’re moving forward into the new world they’ve set up…. unless of course the plot really does end up using Khan as rumored. Then they’re just redoing old stuff with different people.
Either way don’t expect to see beloved franchise staples like William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, George Takei, or any of the others involved. It’s probably for the best.
