I'll Take Star Trek for $600: Trek Stars On Game Shows

I'll Take Star Trek for $600: Trek Stars On Game Shows

If there's one thing I love almost as much as Star Trek (besides The Rockford Files), it's Match Game. It could be any incarnation, 73, 74, 78, PM, it doesn't matter. Just give me a YouTube playlist and lots of Charles Nelson Reilly. I hear he won the Tour de France with two flat tires and a missing chain...but I digress. Recently watching an episode (or six) of Match Game, I got to thinking... Surely there are episodes of Match Game and other game shows chock full o'Trek stars. And, since we live in the future, I was able to fire up the Googles and find several episodes for all you Vulcans and Andorians alike. So, in my best Gene Rayburn, "There are so many Trek stars in these game shows [long pause] that you'll have to [BLANK]." As an added note, even though the title of this article sounds like a question from Jeopardy, this list is Alex Trebek-less. That's on principle... Enjoy.

"We'll See Where The Waves Take Me" William Shatner Is Back As The Priceline Negotiator

After a brief break, William "The Shat" Shatner is back as the official spokesman for Priceline. Billed (no pun intended) as The Negotiator, Shatner is seen on a beach holding a surfboard and looking longingly out to sea in the new commercial. "You've been pretty busy for a dead man" says his TV spot co-star, with Bill finally running to the ocean with a quick "Sayonara, bra" shouted at the end.

William Shatner To Throw First Pitch At L.A. Dodgers Inaugural Star Trek Night August 3rd

The Shat throwing a baseball? Yup. It's the inaugural Star Trek Night at Dodger Stadium Friday, August 3rd at 7pm. I gotta say, it's pretty darn cool to see the Dodgers embracing Trekdom. Not only will you get to see William "Sir Billiam" Shatner throw the first pitch, but if you order tickets now, you'll get a special edition Star Trek / Dodgers themed t-shirt. Which is actually pretty dope. So, just thinking in hypotheticals, but how awesome would it be to have the Gorn at bat for that first pitch? Maybe The Shat can run up and do a double jump kick over home plate. Check out the full description below and a pic of the sweet tee.

Pants Can't Contain William Shatner And His Awesomeness

In a slightly embarrassing incident at LAX, William "The Shat" Shatner was going through a TSA checkpoint when his pants dropped like the shields on the Reliant.  "He tasks me and I shall have him!".... Fortunately, Khan wasn't responsible.  Due to his long flight to South Africa, Sir Billiam was wearing loose fitting clothing and didn't happen to wear a belt.  Some lucky travelers got to see Bill in his Starfleet skivvies.  I bet it was like looking into a rainbow made of lasers and unicorns.
