“Oh, for God’s sake . . . get a life, will you?”
Shatner’s entertaining challenge to Carrie Fisher:
“First of all, Star Wars was derivative of Star Trek, by what ten, fifteen twenty years, whatever it was… Derivative!”
Shatner during his Just for Laughs performance:
“I live in California, but I was raised in Montreal. And yes, I’ve gone where no man has gone before, but I was in Mexico and her father gave me permission! My name is William Shatner, and I am Canadian!”
Shatner as Kirk:
“I don’t believe in no-win scenarios.”
“Spock. IT’LL WORK.”
Shatner as Kirk to McCoy:
“OWW! How long’s it supposed to…”
Shatner’s recorded wake-up call for the crew of STS-133 in the Space Shuttle Discovery on 7 March 2011 on their final day docked at the International Space Station:
“Space, the final frontier. These have been the voyages of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Her 30 year mission: To seek out new science. To build new outposts. To bring nations together on the final frontier. To boldly go, and do, what no spacecraft has done before.”
Kirk Tirakian says
With a first name of Kirk, I was naturally drawn to the Enterprise Capt. character. Of course, if he had acted like Dr. Smith on “Lost in Space” that would have died QUICKLY. William Shatner is special in that way for giving me a role model of sorts.
Captain Kirk was loyal, ethical and a humanitarian, all ideal traits for role models.
