pretzelbucket : Why couldn't there have been a "Behind the Scenes" video to this performance?  Just to see the faces on the production people while he was performing.  Were they dying or buying it or what?

Eamonn Nugent : Jim Kirk's version made it to no1 on Vulcan & Klingon however, Spock thought it was illogical...

Righteous God : William Shatner's performance on the original Star Trek could be said the first truly 'postmodern' acting ever witnessed. An actor quite self-consciously acting yet not acting but being himself. Simultaneously serious yet satirical. LOL. He is a legend.

Jason Collins : Family guy brought me here
