"Star Trek" has always looked to the future (aside from episodes where the crew fought Nazis, Romans and other things the producers could easily get costumes for), but Capt. James T. Kirk himself can't help but be impressed by the franchise's half-century of history.Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the original television series has spawned four spin-off series and 13 feature films, including this summer's "Star Trek Beyond".Shatner tended to distance himself from fans in those days.The documentary, "The Captains," was released in 2011, and Shatner began making joint appearances in 2012 with the four spin-off captains, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula. Shatner continues to attend conventions. Shatner acknowledged that he'd like to appear in one of the new films, similar to the way his original series co-star Leonard Nimoy reprised his role as Spock in the last two films, but Shatner isn't sure how that would work.
