"We were treated like rock stars. I was told there were female Trekkies who kept lists of all the cast members with whom they'd slept. I was told this!" Extracts from 'Up To Now'
, the autobiography of William Shatner
... from his time on Star Trek
, where he comes over as the colossal jerk of legend, to his poignant recollections of the death of his third wife.

The Standardized Should I Stalk William Shatner Test
1. When I think of William Shatner, I:
a. Think of Captain Kirk
b. Think of the original "Star Trek"
c. Push my tummy out as far as I can and say, "But, Ssssss… pock!
d. Hold all the muscles in my face totally still so no one can tell what I’m thinking. This is private to me, do you understand? I won’t have you blabbing to him and ruining my chances of becoming his best friend.

Are... you... a... born... again... Shatner fan? Well then, maybe you should join the First Church of Shatnerology
. More fanatical than that? Better check out the supreme being's chances of winning the Presidential Election 2000
Oh wait, he can't win... he's Canadian. Oh well. Live long and... wear a toupee.

When I got started on the web in '94-95, most pages were somehow related to Star Trek
and recognizing William Shatner
as the god that he is. It's funny, but the old stuff like the Mosaic's What's New page
, Jerry Yang's
homepage, and the machine he used to house his search engine
on are all still online. Even good old Mosaic Communications' URL: mcom.com
points to Netscape. Who says the web is temporary?
