You know how in Jurassic Park, “life finds a way.” Well in real life, fans find a way.
The recently rediscovered Star Trek: The Original Series script by Norman Spinrad may get its day in front of the cameras after all. The folks who run the Star Trek fan series Star Trek: Phase 2 were excited by the script and are working with the author to bring his story to the screen. Spinrad is enthusiastic and dares to hope that William Shatner will make an appearance.
“I’d like to have William Shatner act in it — not as Kirk, but as Bayne!” he wrote on Facebook.
And Shatner being Shatner, I think I just might talk him into doing it since I did write ‘The Doomsday Machine,’ and he could read the script, and it’s just the sort of off the wall notion he might like.”
Here’s hoping Shatner will take a break from his stage show for one last Star Trek episode.
