Mutiny … Aboard The Enterprise!? What’s Really Going On Behind The Ugly Takei/Shatner Twitter Feud

 Show page:  &   Alternate Listening

A few days ago, William Shatner -- aka "Captain James T. Kirk" -- took an 11-minute, life-changing rocket ride into outer space ...

How do we know it was "life-changing?"

Because Bill has said so -- repeatedly ... on every network television show and podcast that would listen over the past week!

Thus, successfully concluding an argument I began with Gene Roddenberry over a half-century ago ....

That, somehow, Gene should deliberately bring "the mythical Star Trek Universe," and the "reality of Americans one day inheriting the solar system" TOGETHER ... even as the Enterprise was "boldly going where no television show had ever gone before ...."

That -- if done correctly -- this could be the literal 20th Century Beginnings of the Star Trek Universe ... for Real!

Gene wouldn't hear of it.

Quoting that infamous line from DeMille -- "want to send a 'message,' use Western Union!" -- Roddenberry totally resisted my idea -- of DELIBERATELY mixing the Fantasy and the Reality of "the Final Frontier" ....

Well, now it's happened ... and Shatner won't shut up about it!

Where will this all lead?

Join us ... as we continue exploring the "infinite diversity, in infinite combination ..." of "boldly going where one 90-year-old Very Brave Actor has now gone before ...."
