Nov 08, 2005 | 7:30am EST

Former Star Trek Captain William Shatner is hoping to bring the cult sci-fi show back to TV--he's writing a pilot for a prequel show.

The actor, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series, wants to bring the glory days back to the show and is working on a treatment that will pre-date the first episode.

He says, "I'm writing a couple of books on the adolescent Captain Kirk/Spock thing as a prequel. It's also an idea for CBS to use as the next series of Star Trek."
