I was resisting the urge to refer to it as that this time.  :rofl:

It would have been great if Shatner had been able to fly on a SpaceX Crew Dragon to orbit.  Three or four days actually in space would have meant much more.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

I agree, but Musk being a younger guy than Bezos, he is probably more of a fan of Pickard and fake Star Trek than Kirk and real Star Trek.  :laugh:

I wonder why everyone but Shatner was wearing a red shirt?

It seems Shatner has been very moved by the experience.  He is having great difficulty expressing how profound the experience was for him.  I hope to hear more from him after he's had time to process things.

I'm wishing him all the best, but if I were 90 year old Bill Shatner, I think dying at apogee would be way cooler than dying in bed.

Flying on the dick rocket, what a way for James T. Kirk to go.  (I always thought T. stood for Tomcat.  Or should.)

Those fancy liquid fuel multi stage reusable rockets are expensive.

Anyone that doesn't want to spend millions can explore the cheaper alternatives:

I was wondering why nobody had commented earlier about the "shape" of that rocket !  :rofl:

That was the first thing my wife said when she saw the rocket.

Mr. Sulu is not amused:

"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. Although he’s not the fittest specimen of 90 years old, so he’ll be a specimen that’s unfit!” he [Takei] added.

I think he's just jealous that Shatner got to ride on a giant dick and not him.

Takei has had a feud going on with Shatner for decades, and it seems to be unilateral. If anyone knows why, I haven't read about it.

Bezos is an insensitive jerk.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GQoHIBDogU

Shatner's wife died from alcoholism.  Shatner was waxing profound on the Overview Effect and how he felt, and Bezos felt a need to get his Spring Break on in the middle of it, and you can tell that Shatner was unimpressed by the lack of class.

It was really obvious that Shatner was put off by Bezos' behavior.  He had just experienced an amazing once-in-a-lifetime event that he wanted to share with everyone, and Bezos thought it more important spritz champagne over everyone.  Shatner actually turned away and looked at the ground for a bit, and it was apparent he was upset at Bezos rudeness.
