One generation of fans grew up watching William Shatner as Captain Kirk go to places where no man had ever gone before, along with the inimitable Dr Spock, played by Loenard Nimoy.
And after him another generation watched Patrick Stewart taking over command of the starship Enterprise to continue man's quest to reach the outer fringes of space.
Now, a couple of generations later, it may just be possible that both the earlier, as well as the present generation, may be able to see all the heroes of the Star Trek series team up for a memorable galactic ride on the big screen.
According to Stewart, movie bosses have shown interest in getting together the stars from all the past and present series, for one final push towards the final frontier.
"It has been raised. Apparently there's interest in bringing the next generation cast together with actors from different Star Trek series.
"I would love that. I'm very fond of William Shatner," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
