The Return of James T. Kirk

On Sunday night, William Shatner made a surprise appearance at the 85th annual Oscar Awards. Shatner, in full Captain Kirk uniform, appeared on the large onstage screen as host Seth MacFarlane kicked off the show.
?Enterprise to Dolby Theater?come in Dolby Theater. This is Captain James T. Kirk,? Shatner shouted as he made his first on-screen appearance as Kirk in almost 20-years.

Shatner told MacFarlane ?I?ve come back in time from the 23rd century to stop you from destroying the Academy Awards.? He went on to read newspaper headlines from the future, including ?Seth MacFarlane Worst Oscar Host Ever.?
The Captain Kirk uniform Shatner wore was last seen on screen in 1994′s Star Trek: Generations and had been on display at Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas until its closing in 2009.
Regardless of the situation, it was great to see Shatner back in Starfleet uniform once again.

Since about 1999 (when Galaxy Quest was released), Shatner has tried to convince the world that he has been "in on" the joke from the very beginning that he's a ridiculous narcissistic ham who has always taken himself way too seriously. While I appreciate the whimsy they were trying to create, this little interlude proves more than ever that Shatner isn't just a joke, but a bad one too.

I liked it. shatner has a great sense of humour. i dont know if its something he has developed or its always been there, but he makes me laugh.

I didn't even make past the middle of the "we saw your ****s" song. Granted, I'm not a huge fan of Seth McFarlane anyway.

It looked way too lame to waste a few minutes of my life on.
