William Shatner knows that 2016 is Star Trek‘s fiftieth anniversary and he has an idea how he would like to be involved in celebrating it.
The idea would include him producing a show.
Speaking at a recent Wizard World Trek convention in Oklahoma, Shatner said that he wanted to “produce and direct a fiftieth anniversary show.” The show would contain “segments (a few minutes each) on the ideas the series birthed and how the show influenced lives.”
The actor went on to share one of those stories, telling his audience how a “Canadian airline executive once loaned the use of a plane. The executive described it as ‘payback’ because Trek had influenced him to enter the aerospace profession.”
“It’s an awesome idea isn’t it?” he asked. “And I’m attempting to sell that idea to some networks and a lot of people are interested in it right now.”
