Captain Kirk vs the Groupies


WILLIAM SHATNER desperately tried to avoid romancing obsessed STAR TREK fans - because they wanted to enact their sci-fi fantasies with the actor.
The 77-year-old, who shot to fame as Captain Kirk in the original 1960s TV show, insists he couldn't enjoy flings with the series' most devoted followers because he was so turned off by their bizarre bedroom behaviour.
In his new autobiography, Up Till Now, Shatner explains how women would pretend they were being "beamed up" by the Starship Enterprise commander, shrieking: "So, this is what it's like to be in bed with Captain Kirk!"
He writes: "You can't imagine how much of a downer that is in every sense of the word."

Egads, the double entendres...

"Going where no man has gone before" - maybe Bill was upset that he wasn't the first?

"Mr. Spock, the women on your planet are logical. That's the only planet in the galaxy that can make that claim." He's been doing extensive research.

Please, Captain, not in front of the Klingons. He even embarrassed Spock.

Of course, I have to ask - how many times did he "desperately tried to avoid" the Kirk obsessed fans? What was the threshold?

Just askin' is all...

Stange note: Shatner's current wife is from my county. They were married at her parents' house about five miles away from me. I hear he likes to come out here to relax.
