Now that Captain Kirk is almost 80, I’ll go ahead and confess to being a true Shatner fan, even if I’ve never been a Trekkie, never seen Boston Legal, never cared for the Priceline commercials, and found that my only favorite Shatner moment was he and Will Smith getting high on laughing gas during an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.


I’m not sure what’s funnier: Shatner himself making fun of Star Trek or Will Smith making fun of Star Trek. Either way, when Shatner grabs Alfonso Ribeiro and says “Scotty you’re…black!”, it’s hysterical.
