Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner will reportedly appear together in a scene in the upcoming film, Star Trek 3. Trekkies around the world are likely holding their breath in hopes that a confirmation of such a statement soon goes viral. To have Mr. Spock and Captain James T. Kirk together on the big screen will no doubt be a long-awaited dream come true.

BadAssDigest was the first to leak word of such a possibility, calling the appearance of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner more of a cameo appearance than actual roles. This would mark the first time that both Kirk and Spock appear on the big screen at the same time since back in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country in 1991.

Badass questions if William Shatner, to whom they refer as being 'prickly,' will actually agree to the appearance. They do note, however, that he has been making noise for quite some time now about wanting to appear in yet another Star Trek film. There was a cameo written into the first Star Trek film for him, but it was dropped before shooting, and there was no place for him in Star Trek Into Darkness. This would undoubtedly be the last time William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy would appear in a film together.

Star Trek 3 still has a while yet before shooting begins--and as anyone from the film world will no doubt attest--a lot can happen between then and now. The film isn't set to hit theaters until some time in 2016. Do you think Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner will make this cameo together?

This could become an integral part of Star Trek history if they do.
