WATCH: William Shatner Returns As Captain Kirk at Comic-Con [#SDCC]

At this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, William Shatner returned to the character that made him a household name — Star Trek‘s Captain James Tiberious Kirk. While he wasn’t wearing a gold tunic or a red dress uniform, the 84-year-old actor read from The Autobiography of James T. Kirk, an in-world memoir that chronicles the life of Starfleet’s greatest captain.

The Autobiography of James T Kirk is set to be released in September, but is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

Official description:

The Autobiography of James T. Kirk chronicles the greatest Starfleet captain’s life (2233–2371), in his own words. From his birth on the U.S.S. Kelvin, his youth spent on Tarsus IV, his time in the Starfleet Academy, his meteoric raise through the ranks of Starfleet, and his illustrious career at the helm of the Enterprise, this in-world memoir uncovers Captain Kirk in a way Star Trek fans have never seen. Kirk’s singular voice rings throughout the text, giving insight into his convictions, his bravery, and his commitment to the life—in all forms—throughout this Galaxy and beyond. Excerpts from his personal correspondence, captain’s logs, and more give Kirk’s personal narrative further depth.

    If they can get Shatner to do the audio book, that would be fantastic!

    It fu**ing sucks that Shatner couldn’t be bothered to go his “best friend’s” funeral: the late great Leonard Nimoy!

    • Karl Fischer

      geez, put a sock in it. You don’t know the whole story and if anything think of how William felt by NOT being at his friends funeral moron!

      • Iknowitall

        I’m not a moron! Go and suck your mom’s dick jerk off!

          • Iknowitall

      Yah, Shame on Shatner for choosing to sacrifice his personal desires to honor his friend, and keeping his commitment to a charity instead… /s

      I know the event organizer personally and Shatner was torn up over this. He chose to honor his commitment to attend an American Red Cross fundraiser as a co-headliner. This took place in Palm Beach so there was some serious dollars at stake. Shatner, like most showbusiness professionals, had to sacrifice personally for the sake of satisfying his audience. Hopefully the money raised will help a family in need.

    This could be a great movie and I think Shatner will be in this movie he did not say yes or no he is just was being coy and saying I don’t know you tell me so I think he will be back.
