The Oscars brings Hollywood glitz and glamour in a serious way, but geeks may have noticed it's long been missing something of the interstellar variety, but this year's show boldly went where no award show has gone before — with a visit from Captain Kirk. William Shatner, in costume as Kirk, of course, appeared on screen as a courageous messenger from the future who was there to save Seth MacFarlane in his hosting duties. The one thing that could make this Star Trek cameo even better?
A visit from the 2013 Captain Kirk, Chris Pine, and Lt. Uhura, Zoe Saldana. Extra Trekkie points to those that caught the Star Trek: The Next Generation opening music during their walk on stage. The actors from J.J. Abrams's upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness recounted their early February presentation of the Scientific and Technical Awards (what else?). Should next year's Oscars feature Benedict Cumberbatch, it'll be a Star Trek trifecta.
