Man, George is salty! Needs to let it go! lolGeorge Takei reignites feud with Star Trek co-star William Shatner, 90, after his trip to space saying he's 'unfit' but will be a 'guinea pig' to show what happens to an older body
George Takei, 84, (left) said his former Star Trek co-star was 'boldly going where other people have gone before,' mocking his phrase as Captain Kirk in Star Trek. William Shatner, 90, became the oldest person in space on Wednesday (right) after spending three minutes in weightlessness aboard a Blue Origin rocket. The pair have co-starred in the iconic TV show (inset) as well as six theatrical releases, ending with Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country in 1991.
Their feud apparently began during filming of the show in the 1960s, with Takei accusing Shatner of ignoring him on set. He also accused him of changing the script of the 1989 film Star Trek V so that Takei's character, Hikaru Sulu, would not receive command of a spaceship. In 2008, Shatner went after Takei's mental health after he was snubbed from Takei's wedding guest list. 'There's such a sickness there. It's so patently obvious that there is a psychosis there. I don't know what his original thing about me was. I have no idea,' Shatner said in a 2008 video.
