Shatner is ready to go (again)
After the unveil and photos, Shatner talked briefly to the gaggle of reporters, when asked if he had plans to be in the next Star Trek movie, the actor stated:

I have no plans, because I don’t make those plans. JJ Abrams has my fate wrapped up in his two little hands. I would love to be in the next Star Trek, if he so thought that would be good for it
