And the ageless wonder -- William Shatner – turns 87 today.
Star Trek’s legendary Captain James T. Kirk is indeed closing in on the big 9-0, but he looks years younger and maintains a workload that would wear out most people half his age.
A cursory glance at his schedule and current projects reveals the following: He’s got – deeeeep breath...
An uber-active Twitter account
A new movie out (Aliens Ate My Homework)
Numerous upcoming convention appearances
He's set to appear at the Star Trek Original Series Set Tour in Fort Ticonderoga, NY, on May 4 and 5
Oh, and this summer NASA will launch a probe to study the sun… and it’ll carry a microchip with his name on it.
And there’s surely more we’ve somehow neglected.
But back to that 87th birthday. Please join StarTrek.com in wishing Shatner a happy birthday.
