Shatner on Enterprise. Almost.
Back in 2004, rumors were flying that William Shatner might appear on Enterprise. Many TOS cast members had appeared on other incarnations of Star Trek—Bones, Spock, Scotty, and Sarek on The Next Generation, Sulu on Voyager, and Kor, Koloth, and Kang on Deep Space Nine to name a few. So the idea that Kirk could show up on Enterprise was made perfect sense. Well, reasonable sense anyway. In the end it never happened, but with all the talk of Shatner possibly returning the franchise in the next film, we thought it to be a good time to revisit Kirk cameos… almost.
In this episode of Warp Five we're joined by Mike Schindler of our TOS show Standard Orbit to talk about the three key possibilities for a Shatner appearance on Enterprise: the Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens Mirror Universe two-parter, the Mike Sussman Chef concept, and the mysterious Shatner pitch that would have also been a two-parter.
