Star Trek’s William Shatner not too long ago went to area and within the course of, turned the oldest particular person to ever make the journey. Many around the globe celebrated the achievement, although fellow Trek alumni George Takei raised eyebrows with a questionable comment about his co-star’s latest enterprise. Now, Shatner has clapped again with an announcement of his personal.
George Takei spoke about his former co-star at an occasion and basically acknowledged that the actor made a terrific take a look at topic for the results of area journey on the human physique. Whereas these sentiments had been comparatively tame, he then took a shot at William Shatner’s physique and referred to him as an “unfit” specimen, from a bodily standpoint. Shatner responded to the quote on his Twitter, asking followers to not retaliate whereas throwing a little bit shade of his personal:
Very like the unique remark, the Captain Kirk actor’s assertion has niceties that in the end get a little bit shady all through the again half. It is but to be seen how these sentiments will probably be taken by George Takei, who has spoken at size through the years about his former colleague’s alleged habits in direction of him on the set of Star Trek.
The 2 Star Trek actors have been at odds for many years and don’t seem to get alongside properly. The general public feud didn’t begin till after their work on the present ended, particularly when George Takei started discussing alleged issues William Shatner did on set. Shatner, in flip, accused Takei of making an attempt to intentionally injure him throughout their notorious sword-fighting scene in “The Bare Time.”
The previous Sulu actor hasn’t shared a response to his fellow Trek alum, so maybe each side have spoken their piece. Followers would possibly hope as a lot, as many would seemingly desire to see these two on nice phrases, particularly through the twilight of their careers. It is unlucky that not everybody concerned with this franchise can have the relationship Captain Kirk and Spock had.
If there’s some silver lining to the scenario, it’s that William Shatner and George Takei can take photographs at one another and transfer on from the scenario as if nothing occurred. Neither one’s appears to have lingered on the scenario. Hopefully, issues don’t escalate any additional and that the 2 will merely let issues relaxation.
At current, you possibly can catch all Star Trek productions on Paramount+. For extra occurring within the franchise, get the newest replace on what’s occurring with Unusual New Worlds.
