Default Space...The Final Frontier

It's official: Captain Kirk is real. William Shatner took a flight on the Blue Origin rocket and went into space.



At age 90. My father is 89 and all he does is bitch about assisted living.

Life imitates art or something like that.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Shatner not only still acting, but still appearing at conventions as well! Staying active keeps him young. I know there's a new Star Trek movie that's going to be made, I think they're trying to close the most recent cinematic universe with Chris Pine, would love if he made a cameo!

I want to be Norman Lloyd when I grow up. He died earlier this year at age 106. Played tennis, everyday, from 1923 to 2015. Was married for 75 years. Oldest actor to retire at 100 (he started when he was 3). Too bad I'm not married, don't play tennis, and can't act.

Here's pulling for Shatner to keep at it!

Sounds like a Fleetwood Mac lyric: "I can't help about the shape I'm in. I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin."

Not my original idea, but thought this was funny.

What if when Shatner stepped out of the capsule, all of the people at the landing site looked like this?

LOVE IT!

Or if they were Klingons!

Either way would have made for an incredible prank.
