For all its style and energy and momentum, 2009's Star Trek reboot was sorely lacking in one area: William Shatner. While Leonard Nimoy got to make a well-publicised cameo as a weather-beaten future version of Spock in the movie, Shatner just didn't get the call. There may have been plans for him to appear in a brief flashback scene, but, judging from the film-maker's account of the matter, they seem to have disappeared the instant Shatner started throwing his weight around. And to say that William Shatner took this badly would be a colossal understatement.
