My Custom Shatnerverse Kirk 4.5" Action Figure -- In the ten Shatnerverse novels by William Shatner with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, Captain Kirk is alive and well in the current Star Trek timeline, having been resurrected after the events of Star Trek Generations. After meeting the true love of his life and having all sorts of adventures, the last few books in the series detail Kirk's current gig as Captain of the Starfleet Q-Ship Belle Reve under the supervision of Admiral Kathryn Janeway.

I've recently been rebuilding my collection of Star Trek Playmates 4.5" action figures, and having collected all the extant Kirks, it was really annoying me that I didn't have him in his most recent incarnation, especially since Playmates did produce the other members of the Belle Reve crew, Admiral McCoy, Ambassador Spock and Captain Scott (all in the versions seen on Star Trek: The Next Generation).

Reading up on customizing techniques and having doubles of both figures needed to create my Shatnerverse Kirk (a Generations Kirk and the mail-away exclusive Captain MacKenzie Calhoun figure), I got to work last night, and much to my amazement, I think it worked. Here are the pictures to prove it.

I recommend the Shatnerverse series of novels, by the way, to anyone who was disappointed with where Trek went after First Contact, because Shatner and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens really capture the characters voices and personalities, and it's a gas to be able to experience so many stories about Kirk tooling around the galaxy with Picard, Janeway, and the holographic Doctor from Voyager, not to mention his only friends from the early days of his career to survive into the 24th century, Spock, Bones and Scotty.

Can you tell I am excited to see the new movie coming out this Friday?
