“The TSA is going… where no man… has… gone… before!”

Can’t blame the TSA for picking a 70+ year old, internationally famous actor for extra screening. Must be because his most famous character passed the Kobayashi Maru test by cheating.

Star Trek legend William Shatner was left nursing a bruised ego when his trousers fell down during an airport security check in front of dozens of fellow travellers.

The actor was queuing at Los Angeles International Airport to catch a flight to South Africa when he was singled out for a search by officials.

    And that Flight Attendant from the previous article will tell him to shut his mouth about the gremlin on the wing.

    Yeah – I was thinking he was embarrassed about his reproduction pod turning green after mating outside his own species. Will it still be considered an abomination and bestiality or will our healthcare and safety concerns all be socialized within the Federation by that time?

    And all this time, I thought Skynet was the big threat.

      “Will it still be considered an abomination and bestiality”

      I don’t think I would give a damn as long as the parts match up.

        YEA Verily. I’d go all beasty on that too.

        …. it must of been a parody but I recall Bones wondering if there was anything Kirk wouldn’t go to bed with.

        Corny and Cheesy even at the time and yet the New Movie Franchise has that irritating “all action-no thinking” vibe going on making it unwatchable.

        —but I see the Director’s Cut of Blade Runner is on in a few hours. I can watch that every time it comes on.

    He was just about to get it on with one of those weird alien TSA people

    Those who have watched the original Star Trek series know that Captain James T. Kirk was very fond of the very powerful explosive called corbomite so it’s obvious that the authorities needed to search for it in William Shatner’s pants.

    Bones, standing near by in the space port security area, was heard to say “Dam Tsasians stole Kirks pants.” “Spock! Spock! don’t just stand there with that smirk on your face, do something!”

    Quoting Bones in Star Trek IV movie “Jim, these people in this century are savages! Dialysis, transplants, pat downs at airports…”

    The good captain has explained what happened by noting it was going to be a very long flight and he decided to wear an outfit that was less constraining than normal so as to be more comfortable. It may be he should have added suspenders to his attire.

    Not everything is the fault of the TSA.

  11. Kelvington says:

    Shatner is 81 years old, just FYI, he hasn’t been 70 for some time.

    I hope that he didn’t show them the Captain’s log…
