haha that was fun:-D

Shatner & Abrams on Jimmy Kimmel: FUNNIEST clip EVER!!!

Shatner would make a great Jedi.

Long Live the Shat!!!!!

Captain Kirk and Lando together in the same scene…wow.


Zoe said “I get to be part of this positive franchise now for the rest of my life”.

Hope she means she will keep doing Trek for as long as they make movies and not just that her work already will be as a badge she can say she has shared in for the rest of her life.

Love Ellen.

Chris Pine looks a lot more relaxed, natural and lovely when he is dressed in a neat, casual way as opposed to being dressed up to the “nines” in expensive suits and ties, with his hair moussed or whatever.

Chris seems to have the most fun on the Ellen show.

The Shatner-Kimmel bit was hilarious. William Shatner looks great for a guy who’s eighty.

WOW :-D SHATNER is the MAN! Great clip :-D

It’s very clear that Shatner and handlers have decided he does not need to be seen as Captain Kirk again, but rather as some type of Jedi holding a light saber in the next Star Wars film. And I think they’re right!

I think we saw the last of the good Captain at this year’s Oscars…

Was it just me, or did Shat get more applause? Not that I’m trying to bash Billy Dee or anything. Thoughts?

Yes, I also think The Shat got more applause… I even think he got the most applause. Well… it….was fun :-)

Great clip.

Shatner should be in the next Trek movie as Commodore Matt Decker!!!

Star Trek Enterprise should continue in novel form. A final original timeline TV Series called Star Trek Phoenix should be put on TV along with an Abramsverse Original Series in 2017.
