Fight Against Maturity

Who? Me?!

shatner.gif Star Trek star William Shatner has reportedly turned down an offer to boldly go into space for real. Shatner, who played Captain Kirk, is too nervous to take up Sir Richard Branson’s offer of joining Virgin Galactic’s first passenger flight in 2008, reports The Sun.

Shatner, 75, said: “I’m interested in man’s march into the unknown but to vomit in space is not my idea of a good time. Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me.”

Shatner has been offered his £114,000 ticket free. But he insists Virgin boss Branson also pays him. He added: “I do want to go up but I need guarantees I’ll definitely come back.”
