The 12 months is 1978. William Shatner, most recognized for his portrayal of Captain James Tiberius Kirk on the (on the time) cult basic “Star Trek,” took half in one of the absurd musical performances of all time. A smoking Shatner recites the lyrics to Elton John’s “Rocket Man” earlier than he breaks into two Shatners for the refrain, after which a 3rd Shatner to convey all of it dwelling. It was pure madness. Please watch the whole thing of the video earlier than shifting ahead. Critically, you possibly can’t miss this.
At this time, the lyrics took on a complete new that means as Shatner flew into house on a Blue Origin rocket this morning. Whereas we can not affirm whether or not or not Shatner packed a bag final evening, preflight, we do know that he wasn’t gone for a “lengthy, very long time.” The mission lasted simply over 10 minutes, or about one fifth the size of an episode of “Star Trek.”
Whereas we have been hoping he would possibly discover a blue girl to smooch on the journey, befriend some tribbles or combat a Gorn, it seems that the 90-year-old actor’s journey wasn’t almost as eventful as his fictional adventures. However say what you’ll in regards to the quick journey, he did boldly go the place few folks have ever gone earlier than. And that is fairly rattling cool.
To have a good time we threw collectively a gallery of tattoos of all issues Star Trek. Get pleasure from!
