This week, Shatner gave us Earth-bound humans another reason to envy him as he became one of the few people to ever escape our atmosphere and travel to space.

Here’s what the Western Journal reported on the subject.
“Enter George Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu in “Star Trek,” a subordinate officer to Shatner’s Captain James T. Kirk.
“He’s boldly going where other people have gone before,” Takei told Page Six.
“He’s a guinea pig, 90 years old, and it’s important to find out what happens,” the 84-year-old continued. “So 90 years old is going to show a great deal more on the wear and tear on the human body, so he’ll be a good specimen to study.”
Not done with insulting his former costar, Takei went for one more jab.
“Although he’s not the fittest specimen of 90 years old, so he’ll be a specimen that’s unfit.”
Of course, every good captain knows that responding to an attack with force isn’t always the best solution.
“Don’t hate George. The only time he gets press is when he talks bad about me,” Shatner tweeted Saturday.
“He claims 50+ years ago I took away a camera angle that denied him 30 more seconds of prime time TV. I’m giving it back to him now by letting him spew his hatred for the world to see!”
