Nimoy Died On Non-Speaking Terms With Shatner

New book reveals the Trek-created friendship had crumbled in months before actor's passing

William Shatner is shedding some new light on the relationship he shared with "Star Trek" co-star Leonard Nimoy leading up to his death, and apparently, it wasn't on good terms. In his new new book, "Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship With a Remarkable Man," Shatner says that friendship had come apart in the months leading up to Nimoy's February 2015 death. Shatner's book isn't expected to hit shelves until Feb. 16, but the British tabloid The Sun has shared some of ...

Shatner Feud All About Publicity, Takei Says

The two original Trek actors haven't liked each other much over the years, and this probably won't help

George Takei is making the rounds with the New York press, promoting his new Broadway musical "Allegiance." The play, which was featured in Takei's recent documentary, sheds light on life in the Japanese-American internment camps Takei was forced to live in during World War II. Of course, some reporters — like those at The New York Times Magazine, can't help but ask Takei about his long-standing feud with original "Star Trek" series co-star William Shatner. And Takei can't help himself from answering. So with Shatner in his 80s, and Takei not far behind, why not ...

Naval Ship From 'Star Trek IV' On Final Voyage Home

The USS Ranger doubled as the USS Enterprise, the nuclear 'wessel' Chekov and Uhura looked for

The USS Ranger ended a stellar 36-year career more than 20 years ago, serving in conflicts ranging from Vietnam to the first Gulf war. But now the ship, which stood in as the USS Enterprise in 1987's "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home," is on one final voyage: to the scrapyard. The Ranger (CV-61) was towed out of Bremerton, Washington, on Thursday, according to the Associated Press, and is now on its way to Texas — a 16,000-mile journey that will take it around the southern tip of South America. Unlike the Enterprise's five-year mission, this one will be just five months, getting ...

Surviving Trek Castmates Share Nimoy Tributes

Walter Koenig, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols among those remembering colleague

There already have been tremendous losses in the Star Trek family before this weekend. DeForest Kelley was the first when he died in June 1999. James Doohan followed in July 2005. And, of course, Leonard Nimoy passed away Friday at the age of 83. But the surviving members of the original "Star Trek" cast took the time this weekend to share some words of remembrance of Nimoy, led by Walter Koenig — who played Chekov in the original series — writing a guest piece for Time. "The eulogies for Leonard will be affirmative, loving and respectful," Koenig said. "That's what ...

Truce For George Takei, William Shatner? The long-standing feud may finally be coming to an end It's not exactly clear what started the rift between classic "Star Trek" stars William Shatner and George Takei. But it seems at least one of them is looking to make it end.Not because it would be nice that two men in their golden years have other things they can stress about, but because Takei thinks it's all an act, much like the so-called feud between Shatner and Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame."This is all an act," Takei recently told the Los Angeles Times. "He complained about not getting invited to (my) wedding. Everyone knows we did send an invitation. Why ...
