Star Trek's Star: Captain Kirk AKA William Shatner

Captain Kirk, an adventurous guy,
flew through galaxies beyond earth’s sky
on an old sci-fi show
which was canceled although
crazy fans would not let Star Trek die!

First for having the Captain Kirk name,
William Shatner achieved certain fame.
Illusions can shatter;
though older and fatter,
Shatner still is a STAR all the same!

* William Shatner earned both a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his quirky
role as Denny Crane and Emmy nominations until the end of the series
Boston Legal. Also he appears on numerous comedy and tv shows, does 
cameos, interviews, conventions, commercials, twitter, and book writings
and has a star on both the Hollywood and the Canadian Walk of Fame.

    Congratulations Petal very funny write. This is where I belong, in the future trekking, none of that going back in the past, I wanna know how we fair in the future. Can see myself sitting on a beach next to some warm far away sea in a thousand years from now, reading a book of poems by that famous poet of the 21st century, Andrea Dietrich, now wouldn't that be fantastic. Take care, Richard

    Although Star Trek is legendary... I absolutely loved BOSTON LEGAL... one of my favorite series of all time and James Spader was the icing on the cake... I like how you take the facts and weave them into a fun read...:)

    DENNY CRANE! You think maybe he was playing himself? :) That was a good show. Now James Spader is on Black List or something like that. Looks Silent of the Lambish. 00000. :)
