Live Long and Prosper.

L is for Live Long and Prosper!

There have been times when William Shatner's Kirk persona saved his neck just in the nick of time.. Once, scheduled to film an early morning desert scene, Shatner donned his Captain's uniform at home and drove his automobile at warp speed to make the set for the 4am deadline.

"I didn't think there would be any other traffic," he says "There was. A police car with flashing lights pulled me over."

When asked where he was going, Shatner replied "To My spaceship." The police officer sighed and sent him on his way.

"Not without telling me to "Live Long and Prosper."

Shatner is awesome.

I would have let him go too. You can't give Shatner a ticket. Telling Kirk he can't go fast is like telling Spock he can't use logic.

Now that's how you get out of a ticket.

:-D Excellent post! Shatner's Kirk was truly a time capsule for those of us looking back.
