What Makes a Good Captain



Oh fuck yes.

Bill is EVERYWHERE - and in Cars

From today's SF Chronicle - Pop Quiz with Gary Numan:
Q: Your songs have been done by everyone from Nine Inch Nails to Homer Simpson. Do you have a favorite cover version?

A: I'm told that William Shatner did a version of "Cars" and, if that's true, I can't tell you how cool it is for me to know that Captain Kirk has covered one of my songs. It doesn't get any better than that. If he hasn't, then I remain unfulfilled as a songwriter.

It's true, Gary. You are now officially Fulfilled.

Bill hasn't played Young Hot Kirk in a few decades and yet...

...when rounding up potential villains for the next Trek movie, all of the "key scenes" are obviously for YH Kirk, not YD Kirk.

Captain Kirk Beams Down to the Christmas Parade


Rare footage from 1968, Columbia, South Carolina. It's silent so provide your own soundtrack. Ours was
Did her ... did her ... did all three of them ... did the entire squad at the same time ... /squeal!/ BILL! .. slammed down some Kirk-fu on those clowns and their little cars ... /sigh/ Bill ..."

1-2-3, 1-2-3...



From the Examiner:
The evening was all about laughs with William Shatner. The lighthearted American sweetheart has always been the entertainer who gave more than others

Ahem!

The Captains of the Final Frontier, a new two-hour Star Trek documentary to be aired on the Bio Channel on Wednesday, November 3 at 9 PM, will focus on the “fearless captains of each Star Trek generation.”

In the show, a cast of Star Trek experts will analyze each Star Trek captain, whose “incredible triumphs and epic dark moments” will be discussed with the captains being compared “against each other as leaders and lovers.”
First of all, it's already established that Kirk is the best leader, lover and all-round-guy you wanna be and/or fuck.


So what are they going to do for 2 hours? Let's see...
The Star Trek experts include creators and directors, episode writers, novelists and Star Trek actors.
No fans? Seriously? One fan is more of a Star Trek expert than all of those put together.

Sheesh.

OTOH, it's KIRK so don't miss it!

Bill multi-tasks!

See him talk about Bleep My Dad Says, wrinkles (the interviewer's), horses and retirement, all while displaying some verra nice basket.

Sometimes the Internet is so worth it

... and these comments.

Build your own origami Enterprise!

From the ever-resourceful Jonk.


You can download a pattern and it comes with instructions I will never be able to follow. I know because I just put together a dog crate. Hope they don't laugh at us at the airport.

Here's the pattern and here are the instructions.

If you build it, they will warp.

Bill Dreams of Genie

See Bill's comic acting chops on display in this Canadian TV Special "30 Years of the Genie Awards."

Tip: Bill's stuff is at the end and beginning of each segment so you can skip to those.


Watch it. Really. It's funny.
