William Shatner has said he'd game to helm a starship again if Quentin Tarantino actually does a "Star Trek" film and his trusty helmsman Sulu would be down to join him if he's called to serve.

George Takei was spotted at LAX on Monday when he was asked if he'd like to appear in the film, should QT ever do it. And while you think Takei would offer up a blanket "yes," he wasn't 100% in.

"Well, it all depends," Takei told the photog. "He is a very individualistic filmmaker, so he will decide how he envisions it, who he is gonna cast."

Takei was then flatly asked, if Tarantino calls, what would he say?

"It depends on the script," he explained.

Tarantino has recently shown interest in directing a "Star Trek film," from a script by Mark L. Smith, who wrote "The Revenant."

“I don’t know if I’ll do it or not,” Tarantino recently said in an interview with Deadline. "I’ve got to figure it out, but Mark wrote a really cool script. I like it a lot. There’s some things I need to work on but I really, really liked it.”

Tarantino has famously said he'd only do 10 films, so would a hypothetical "Star Trek" movie, if not written by him, count towards that number?

“You know, I think it has to count,” he told EW. “I think it has to count. A year ago, I was thinking, Well, okay, if I do Star Trek, naturally my last one would have to be one I wrote. Now, I’m like, 'No, no, if I want to do Star Trek that much, I need to want to do it that much.' We’ll see.”
