And now, we interrupt this Presidential campaign with the latest in my series on “Feuds I Wish Would Never End”. I wish this one would last forever:
William Shatner versus George Takei. The former played Captain Kirk on “Star Trek,” and the latter played “Sulu” on the same show.
Recently, Sulu had a gay wedding ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum, and Captain Kirk is mad that Uhura and Chekhov were invited but not him.
In fact, the Shat is so steamed that he had his publicist interview him on the topic, asking softball questions, and posted it on his website. As Shakespeare once wrote, Captain Kirk, Thou Doth Protest Too Much. And beside that, who wants to go to a gay wedding, anyway?
Beam me up, Scotty, and please don’t let this Starship Enterprise tiff ever end.
I do have to give Shatner credit, though. At 77, toupee or not, he looks great (after several wives, including one who died under mysterious circumstances) and regularly answers questions from fans via YouTube video, like this latest one:
Here’s partial video of my fave Shatner video ever:
