Shatner May Not Be In New Star Trek Movie

Gotcha! The article is about the first ST movie, not the new one for 2009.

When the efforts began to get Star Trek restarted, it had more sudden jerks than Kirk's flivver driving in "A Piece of the Action." From reluctant stars to script problems, it seemed as if the Enterprise would never leave drydock. These two articles from 1977, one from The Star tabloid and the other from a Macon, GA. newspaper, illustrate the kind of coverage that the starts and stops got in the press.

But eventually it would happen... and in the days, weeks and months leading up to the 2009 release of the new Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams, I'll be posting many articles and items having to do with the creation of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It was an exciting time unlike any other for Trek fans, and I hope that the posts here help you recapture that period... or if you're too young to remember it, to see what it might have been like.
