Shatner Plans ‘Star Trek’ Prequel


The actor, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series, wants to bring the glory days back to the show and is working on a treatment that will pre-date the first episode.

He says, “I’m writing a couple of books on the adolescent Captain Kirk/Spock thing as a prequel. It’s also an idea for CBS to use as the next series of Star Trek.”
