Pretty neat.

and how appropriate it is that he is heading into space. Captain Kirk always and forever.
He has done alot of Stem Cell therapy for his horrible Tinnitus

he got from the "Arena" episode of Star Trek...he may be in his 90's but he is really younger then that because of the treatments.
Yes

Very cool! I believe Shatner was invited was de Vries or did he have to pay? Either way I know it was a bucket list item for him so good for him.
There was a funny meme where the hatch is opened  
GiantBlue : 10/13/2021 11:46 am : link
By folks in Planet of the Apes costumes.
I hope he survives, lol, he's no spring chicken...  
BillKo : 10/13/2021 11:56 am : link
..but if there's one guy who has to do this, after his life, it's Bill Shatner!!!!

I believe he paid, and they referred to him as a customer during the launchcast. Should be catching up with him in a week or two.
Did I miss something regarding Shatner?  
bigblue1124 : 10/13/2021 12:14 pm : link
Seems to be a lot of distain for the guy? I don’t recall any past issues with him. I may have missed it? Or is this just BBI member’s being miserable as usual?
guessing it's curmudgeonly  
JonC : 10/13/2021 12:56 pm : link
behavior. Who hates The Shat? Fook them.
He's back already

They probably had somebody tell them in an annual performance review "you're not exactly the person I'd put in charge of my fleet's next five-year mission"

“ Now that we've sent William Shatner to space, can we send Daniel Radcliffe to magic camp? Maybe Elijah Wood to a jewelry store?”

Glad to hear he had the opportunity good for him pretty awesome making a dream happen. Wish him well.
Anyone remember The TOS episode , The Deadly Years ?  
Ron from Ninerland : 10/13/2021 3:16 pm : link
I remember watching that episode in the 60's. In that episode a landing party beamed down to a planet and contracted a virus that caused them to age rapidly. The special effects they used to show the crew aging were excellent even by today's standards.

Ever since I watched that episode I wondered what these actors would look like when they actually aged over the decades. Of course I had no idea in 1968 that Star Trek would be the cultural phenomenon that it has become. As it turned out William Shatner today looks nothing like the older Kirk in that episode, although the older Leonard Nimoy did look like the older Spock in that episode.

Now the real William Shatner, more than half a century after Star Trek has gone into space. This is an explanation point on the incredible phenomenon that is Star Trek.
Well, if some reports are to be believed

Shatner isn't exactly the nicest or most gracious of "stars". Then there's the whole dead wife in the swimming pool thing.
He looks incredible for 90.

Na, actually people said he is super nice if you meet him in an airport.

Remember you are only as nice as your last interaction.

I'm not talking about some randos that ran into him. I'm talking about his colleagues.

His wife drowned in a pool while he was away. This you point out as a reason people are negative about Shatner.

What am I missing here?
