Star Trek Shows
By JENNIFER MASHUGA
During William Shatner's long and storied career, it's become common for the 91-year-old to be blunt about his thoughts. Regardless, fans were still slightly surprised by his response when asked at San Diego Comic-Con what he thinks of the new “Star Trek” shows.
When a fan asked if he thought any of the new "Star Trek" series rivaled his own, Shatner quickly replied, "None of them." He expanded on his answer with, "I got to know [creator] Gene Roddenberry in three years fairly well, he'd be turning in his grave at some of this stuff."
However, Shatner graciously congratulated Paul Wesley on Twitter for his role as a younger Captain Kirk in "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds" and defended "Star Trek: Discovery" on Reddit. It’s just a fact of life that William Shatner will share his uncensored opinion on everything — it’s only a matter of when.
