I would like to personally thank William Shatner for appearing at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago this last weekend. I was able to get a photo with him along with a personalized autograph. As you know I am a huge TOS fan. So for me this was an opportunity of a life time.
After all there is only one James T. Kirk.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So yes I am 50 years old and I am wearing a vintage command shirt from Ruby costumes. Yes I am Geekus Extremus. If you don’t know what that means see MacReady on the bridge.
I am a Trekkie.
To understand what I mean please read 47years.
The original pilot for Star Trek failed. The entire crew was changed except for Leonard Nimoy (Mr.Spock). A second pilot was shot ” Where no man has gone before.”
This is when William Shatner was introduced to the world as Captain James T. Kirk. Handsome dashing and heroic Kirk defined for a generation the qualities that a leader should possess.
If the actor William Shatner had not deliver the performances that created this iconic character the Trek franchise would never have happened. Since the official crew was developed over time the series hung solely on Shatner’s performances.
Shatner’s ability to make us believe that Kirk’s ship The USS Enterprise and his crew where in danger and his willingness to do anything to save them is why I watched the reruns my entire life. If you don’t understand heroes click here HEROES.
So thanks again Wizard World Comic Con Chicago for giving me this opportunity.
and thanks again William Shatner…Captain
From now on the picture of Kirk for our Captain’s Log will be my autographed copy. How cool is that…
May the Love of Christ be with you always….
…Live long and Prosper
