|Five-year mission, 40-year feud.|
William Shatner apparently does not listen to Capt. James T. Kirk's advice.
In "Star Trek II," Kirk snaps at Dr. Leonard McCoy when he learns he is about to cross paths with his former lover, Carol Marcus, who is the mother of his son: "As a physician, you of all people should appreciate the danger of re-opening old wounds."
Shatner has a different version. He said he did not receive an invitation and that Takei was just looking for media attention.
Furthermore, Shatner fires this photon torpedo shot across the bow of the Excelsior's commander on Page 51, according to The Marquee Blog:
Takei "says that I have a 'big, shiny, ego!' Well, actors have big egos. If mine is shiny, it's because I tend to it very carefully and lovingly. Perhaps George's needs a good polish."This brings to mind the Klingon proverb, "Perhaps today would be a good day to bury the hatchet. You're both old men. Get over it."
