William Shatner (89 years old) was in Austin in 2019 at the Bass Concert Hall to share fascinating and humorous behind the scenes stories from portraying the original "Captain James T. Kirk" in the Star Trek television series. Shatner also spoke  about his life, movies, and 50 plus years as an award-winning actor, producer and director. We enjoyed a screening of Star Trek II, the Wrath of Khan before his presentation.

The complete introductory speech, spoken by William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship USS Enterprise at the beginning of each Star Trek episode, is:

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!

My favorite Star Trek television series created by Gene Roddenberry and starred First Officer and Science Officer Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Chief Medical Officer Leonard McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Chief Engineer Lt. Commander Scotty (James Doohan),  Lt. Sulu (George Takei) and Lt. Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), the first African-American woman to hold such an essential role in an American television series. I have seen all 79 episodes numerous times over the past 40 plus years.
