"There's no clip -- just me," Shatner explained during his appearance. Which is strangely apt, considering that he's always been a kind of bizarre, omni-medial one-man show. This fall, Shatner has a new book, album, and an app (pick words for Shatner to "sing"!), in addition to the movie. He brought a list of talking points.
And there's another movie in the works (tentative title: Fan Addicts), in which the fulcrum himself goes to Star Trek conventions to find out what all the fandom fuss is about. Shatner says that he's come to a deeper understanding of fan culture, in which people participate in a mythology as a kind of ritual.
While this is likely news to the original Captain Kirk, at least he's learning. As Fan Expo was clearing out, so too was a Jays game from SkyDome (I will never call it Rogers Centre). Some jock douchebags were mocking the dressed-up nerds, and generally being far more obnoxious and, well, uncultured. I didn't feel like wasting my time trying to explain the fundamental similarities of wearing a Starfleet uniform and a Jays or Leafs jersey, when one is not a member of any of those organizations. Besides, Starfleet wins more often.
