Any chance he will stay there?

 

OMG, that was almost blasphemy coming from a guy who has been to Start Trek conventions not only in costume, but in full prosthetic makeup as well.  I even attended the "Sit Long and Prosper" event... I am a Trekkie..... I gotta check with Starfleet command to determine the correct penance for such an utterance....

At 90, you reckon he wears a piece? Sure got a lot of hair.

I don't think that picture in the meme is a current photo.

Spock will give you that collarbone pinch and you will be in confinement for 30 days!:P

Current photo of the Captain! Looks great for 90! Looks like his real hair too or a VERY good piece!

Mr Scott beat him there.

 

I always liked Mr. Scott- one of the reasons I went into Electronics and computer repair after high school in the 1980's. However, there was more money to be made in industrial electrical work.

 

The ashes of James Doohan — Scotty from Star Trek — are aboard the International Space Station

What is that supposed to mean

I like Shatner, but the man is everywhere. He has his own shows and he guests on all kinds of other shows. I am hoping if I make it to 90 I can be retired and not have to work.

Betty White is 99 and still going strong. 
 

Tony Bennett is 95 with Alzheimer’s but still sings his songs. 
 

I hope I’m still having that much fun after nine decades orbiting the sun!

Hair replacement technology I’ll bet. No hairpiece could look that natural.

I am a closet Trekkie. I love Star Trek, all of them. I have never gone to a convention, but I do belong to the Amazon “Star Trek shirt of the month” club. Every month I get a different tee shirt with a Star Trek theme. :D

I attended one of his shows in Denver several years ago.  One of the "questions" the "interviewer" asked was, "Boxers or briefs?" To which Shatner replied, "Depends!" :rolleyes::lol:

 

I do envy him the ride, and would take one if offered...free!  But, to me, going into space would mean on orbit.  Now, if Elon would call me...  I told my wife when we first met 55 years ago, that if the chance ever came, there would be no discussion.  She said, she'd wave!  Maybe by the time I'm 90, the price of a seat on a Crew Dragon will have come down to where I could afford it...if I could pass the physical. 

Live long and prosper, Capt. Kirk!

Ad Astra!
