image for William Shatner Reveals Feelings Ahead Of Space Flight: “I’m Captain Kirk And I’m Terrified”

During his panel at New York Comic-Con on Thursday, William Shatner revealed that he’s terrified to go into space.

“My friend Jason Erhlick came to me about a year and a half ago and he said he was seeing these rockets with people going into space.

And, wouldn’t it be something if Captain Kirk went up there?”

Nobody cares if Captain Kirk goes to space.

About a year passed due to Covid before a real conversation took place about Shatner following Jeff Bezos’ historic trip to space.

“I don’t want to be the oldest guy to go into space,” the 90-year-old exclaimed to the roaring crowd.

I’m planning on putting my nose against the window [once I’m in space], and my only hope is I won’t see someone else looking back. »

According to the previous law, however, spousal rape "does not include acts of sexual intercourse accomplished under the specific circumstances.". »
