Then: Shatner played Captain James Tiberius Kirk, saver of worlds and sexer of many alien ladies, in the original TV series and films.
Where is he now? Is still William Shatner, and has had a long and successful career being William Shatner. In addition to playing Kirk in all the Star Trek films until 1994's Generations, which handed the reins over to the cast of The Next Generation, Shatner had leading roles in other successful TV series, from T.J. Hooker in the 1980s to Boston Legal in the 2000s. He has also had an unexpectedly fruitful musical career, which mostly involves being William Shatner, but with music; indeed, his Ben Folds-produced 2004 album Has Been was praised by many critics.
and lets not forget that Rodenberry started a social revolution-----
the crew comprised of a black female, a japanese officer and a russian officer on the bridge of the enterprise. Plus that famous kiss when Shatner kisses Nicols onscreen, a first in televison and done at the time of the civil rights movement.
Rodenberry, far ahead of his time.
And many of the gadgets on Star Trek would inspire those to create them in real life including the cell phone, the modern day hospital bed with monitors, work towards developing new energy sources and warp drive and transporter technology.
Oh and for you in the US-------Captain Kirk was from Montreal, not Iowa!! lol
