This Week...He’s Boldly Going

In honor of Capt. James T. Kirk who at 90 will head to space, I thought I'd share some of his quotes.



You have to create your life. You have to carve it, like a sculpture. William Shatner

Some of you may not be a fan of space movies or television shows, but I grew up watching Star Trek...Capt. James T. Kirk, Spock, Bones, and Scotty. 

I find age such a foreign concept. I have to be reminded. I still have the extraordinary feeling of adventure, striking out into unknown fields. William Shatner

He may not head to the moon but at 90 he’s going where many of us wouldn’t even think of going. 

Regret is the worst human emotion. If you took another road, you might have fallen off a cliff. I'm content. William Shatner


If you’ve never seen one of the original Star Trek episodes (I used to be able to list all of the original episodes) then I encourage you to find one.  If you’re used to today’s computer-generated images of aliens and sets, you may be disappointed but be patient. 


We meet aliens every day who have something to give us. They come in the form of people with different opinions. William Shatner

Live long and prosper...

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker I think everyone should cheer for him!!! And yes, how fitting is it that Capt. James T. Kirk is heading for space. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I love that quote as well.  Lots of different meaning in it.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I totally agree. He had a show on the Biography channel called Raw Nerves where he interviewed different celebrities. Stay interested, stay curious and keep learning.

Will Hamm I'm not sure I would but it would be interesting. 

Andrea Bedard I agree!!! And just because we reach a certain age, doesn't mean we give up living.

I met Scotty once at a VHS video signing for Star Trek III. He absolutely despised Shatner.

Kathy like Wayne Martin  never been a fan of William Shatner especially  what he was accused of here in the greater Los Angeles area... now with that said gotta love his spirit and attitude despite of all that... I am sure he appreciates that the the Space Force newest branch of the military are using their uniform designs, Endre

We used to watch his show and re-runs too. After him, none of the other Captains seemed as good. 90...who would have thought?

I remember reading recently that Captain Kirk is now 90.  Yet, it made perfect sense when I remembered how old I currently am.  The years do creep up on us.

Kathy, this is the first I have heard of this.  Quite impressed and happy for the 'young' man.  I too have enjoyed Captain James T Kirk for many many years.  Mark

This is a wonderful post of honmor Kathy Streib . I am a huge fan of William Shatner and Star Trek. My daughter (Tina) and I have watched every episode of every Star Trek series as well as every Star treck movie together. We loved that Star Trek was about peaceful missions as opposed to Star Wars which was killing, killing, and more killing.

I love William Shatner!

I didn't read all the comments so this may have already been mentioned...did you see Better Late Than Never?

William Shatner, George Forman, Terry Bradshaw and Henry Winkler go on adventures. It is so good. If you haven't seen it, check it out. I'm sure you can find it somewhere. The four of them are so funny together.

Hi Kathy:

What a fun post about William Shatner. I also grew up watching Star Trek - he was the best of the Captains IMO!

He just finished his flight a little while ago according to the online news.

Anyone ever watch him on Boston Legal?
