Shatner pitches early Star Trek show

Shatner pitches early Star Trek show
Former Star Trek Captain William Shatner must have gotten a look at last weeks totals for the DVD and video game release of "Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith" (which brought in over $200 million) -- Sci-fi still has some legs out there!

Mr. Shatner says he wants to bring the cult sci-fi show back to TV - he's writing a pilot for a prequel show: Star Trek.
The actor, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series, says he 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." If I worked at CBS I would put that one on a fast track.

I hope the treatment has room for a young Sulu (originally played by George Takei -- who came out of the closet last week) as he explores some of his own darker deep space.
