What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

William Shatner

Oh Hollywood

Here’s Who Won At Last Night’s Oscars. Besides William Shatner, That Is.

Django Unchained, two for you. Life of Pi? Four for you, Life of Pi. You go, Life of Pi. Jennifer Lawrence? Do we have a Jennifer Lawrence here? Here you go, one for you… and none for The Hobbit‘s dwarf beards, byeeee!

William Shatner Thinks J.J. Abrams Has Gone to the Dark Side

Willam Shatner is not taking J.J. Abrams taking Star Wars sitting down.

Which is to say he seems pretty disappointed that the director of two Star Trek movies is now in charge of the next Star Wars movie.

Real Live Canadian William Shatner to Chat (Real) Live With Real Live Canadian Astronaut

It was a match made on Twitter, between William Shatner and Commander Chris Hadfield, between an incredulous Canadian who played television’s boldest space captain, and a completely credulous spaceman who’s due to become the first Canadian to command the International Space Station soon. But the two are ready to take their relationship off of Twitter and to an equally public space: a live-streamed conference call between the Earthbound actor who inspired so many real astronauts, and the astronaut who’s inspiring a lot of earthbound folks with his dedication to social media.

Star Trek’s Captain Kirk Tweets At CSA’s Commander Hadfield

It’s one thing to see science and science-fiction collide in something like the real sonic screwdriver, but it’s another when characters are involved. Star Trek’s own Captain Kirk, William Shatner, was recently spotted tweeting at the Canadian Space Agency’s Commander Chris Hadfield. About space. While Hadfield was actually in space headed for the International Space Station. It doesn’t get much better than this, folks.

Kate Mulgrew Invokes Wrath of the Nerd Titans by Stating There Were Only Two Star Trek Captains

The identity of the best captain to ever helm the Enterprise in a Star Trek show is one of the most contentious in the fandom, and certainly the actors who play those five captains have been known to dabble in the controversy from time to time. But Kate Mulgrew, the only female captain of the franchise, may have just shown us that she has the biggest… ah… warp cores.

William Shatner Is Making A Xena Documentary, Starts By Calling Its Fans “Needy”

I’m a die-hard Trekker but that doesn’t mean I have to love everyone who’s ever acting in the long-running saga. For every George Takei or Wil Wheaton, there’s a William Shatner. The Star Trek actor has certainly made a niche for himself in recent years acting as the spokesperson for Priceline and performing in other comedic offerings but he’s also turning into a documentarian. Previously he directed The Captains, a film more suited to his expertise, and a Trek fan documentary called Get a Life, but now he’s set his sights on fans of Xena: Warrior Princess and it’s safe to say he’s out of his depth.

Yes, There’s a Shatner “Impression,” But Leonard Nimoy Covers Even Cooler Stuff In This Video

Here is what you need to know about this interview with Leonard Nimoy from Hero Complex: Yes, there is an “impression” of his Star Trek co-star William Shatner, and it is in the very last couple of minutes. But there is a ton of Trekkie gold in this interview — which lasts about 15 minutes, so plan accordingly — like how Nimoy came up with the “Live long and prosper” hand gesture and which episodes of the show he likes to poke fun at. A perfect way to spend the last few minutes of a Friday before a holiday weekend!
