    This was so awesome! One of my childhood heros goes to space and returns home with tears in his eyes.
    Maybe someday there will be a starship Enterprise. I can see naming one of the vessels Shatner.
    Congrats to William Shatner!

    I went to a 'dramatic reading' he gave decades ago at Market Square Arena with musical backing. I left early.

    But I applaud him for being a driven person, no slowing down here!

    My wife took issue with this, "The man is 90 years old for Pete's sake, what are they doing to him! look at his gut, he can't possibly survive..." I promptly put a finger on her lips and asked her to stop the nonsense immediately "This is Captain James T. Kirk you're speaking of. Not another word."

    Jimmy Doohan has gone up there, a number of times, though not while alive. It still counts. :)

    I knew Lisa and I would get along when she agreed to pose with my cardboard Kirk:

    Everyone should have dressed in Planet of the Apes suits when he returned.
