Beam Me Nowhere, Scottie

Kirk went into space like a man (and always looking for a woman) but Shatner won’t:

The Star Trek legend was offered a ticket by Richard Branson onboard Virgin Galactic’s first passenger flight in 2008. But Shatner, fearing he would be ill in space or the starship would crash, ironically revealed he’s terrified of space travel.
The 75-year-old actor said: “I’m interested in man’s march into the unknown but to vomit in space is not my idea of a good time. Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me.”

Mind you, at 75 the idea probably wouldn’t appeal to me too much, either.

    If there were a bevy of green-skinned hotties on board, he’d change his mind.

  5. Bingley doesn’t DO green, Gunny ~ he’s more the blueblood type.

    I always thought Kermit was kinda hot.
