He's best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the USS Enterprise, but William Shatner can't be pinned down to the iconic character he made famous in the seventies. A decade after Star Trek, Shatner became T.J. Hooker, veteran police detective. He has since worked as a director, author, recording artist and celebrity pitchman for Priceline.com. He's won two consecutive Emmy awards for his work on The Practice and Boston Legal. At 76, the Canadian-born actor shows no signs of slowing down. He's currently acting as Celebrity Ambassador for Star Trek The Trek Tour, which promises to be the largest Star Trek exhibit ever, and he has a new book out, Star Trek: The Academy – Collision Course.
* Star Trek The Tour runs from January 18 through February 17 at the Queen Mary Dome in Long Beach, and then moves on to San Francisco, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Chicago, and Detroit. More information can be found at StarTrek.com
