Young folks today are more likely to recognize Shatner as the Priceline Negotiator, but die-hard Star Trek fans only see the USS Enterprise commander who had the honor of being Starfleet's youngest captain.
In 1986, Shatner famously spoofed fanatical Star Trekkers in a Saturday Night Live skit.
Get a life, he tells a bunch of Trekkers at a convention. For crying out loud, it's just a TV show.
Today, the octogenarian is on tour for his one-man performance, Shatner's World.
With more than 980,000 followers on Twitter, Shatner regularly provides updates on everything from his latest media appearances to his charity work.
Check out the old SNL skit here.
Live long and prosper!
