    William Shatner has stated more than once he doesn't know what George is on about. While Mr Takei keeps saying William Shatner "F you and that horse you rode in on ."

    Ready to boldly go? William Shatner, 90, 'is going into SPACE with Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin': Legendary Star Trek actor would become the oldest person EVER in space

    upload_2021-9-24_14-59-48.png

    Legendary Star Trek actor William Shatner is set to become the oldest man ever in space as part of the second crew to travel with Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin. The 90-year-old actor will take off in the New Shepard capsule in October for a 15-minute civilian flight, according to TMZ. The Blue Origin flight will be recorded for a documentary that was rejected by Discovery and is now being negotiated by Shatner's team somewhere else. It is believed that the actor's spot aboard the spaceship is being comped. His fellow civilian astronauts have not yet been named.

    Technically, not the series, but one of the original movies.
    The Accidental Star Trek Actress
    Layla Sarakalo was a frustrated San Franciscan who could not move her car because the film crew for the movie, “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” had blocked the street.

    Since she had nothing to do she asked the crew if she could be an extra. They agreed and told her she was to listen to actors Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols. She was instructed not to respond. All Trek fans know this scene as the “Nuclear Wessels” scene.

    Not only did she respond, with the line, “Oh, I don’t know the if I know the answer to that. I think it’s across the bay, in Alameda.” she impressed the producers who liked the spontaneity of the improve and kept it in the film. They even signed her up to be in the Screen Actors Guild on the spot. (Anyone speaking a line in a film must be a member)

    In an interview, Ms. Sarakalo said she didn’t know the line was included in the movie until she went to watch it.

    Shatner in space, eh? Well damn, we both lived long enough to see that. I assume there were basic precautions that had to be taken. This was a media event that they couldn't afford an interference with so I assume they gave him the destrcut codes because ..... welll ..... you know ......


    And another thing. That rocket really does look like a big ......

    George 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

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Sulu was always just getting publicity with this schtick, even if Shatner was an ******e back then. He's just been banging the drum too hard too long and probably believes his own nonsense. There are people I worked with years ago and we fought like cats and dogs - yet now we are friends and that's all behind us. This codger is deliberately keeping this going lest we forget he's alive. Sounds like jealousy.
