Submitter needs to take a ride on top of a car hood, me thinks.

The guy who wrote TekWar?  I've wondered what he'd been up to since.

Is there any concern that he could have a heart attack or something during any of this?

He's famous for a show set in a different century in which San Francisco plays a prominent role

No, I don't think its a problem if the oxygen use decreases a bit

The only show I've seen him in is My Life is Murder

No, no, no... you're all forgetting his most famous role

Hosting "The UnXplained" on the History Channel

He's a famous AUTHOR, duh.

I could think of a worse way for him to go.

Why don't they just launch from space where there's no weather? Do I have to think of everything around here?

Wait, so that's an option... we can just nominate people that need to be launched into space?  Because I have a list...

"space"

Yes yes, I know it goes above the Karman Line, my troglodyte brain just has a hard time considering anything sub-orbital to be "space".

In all fairness, Ferris made him do it.

The guy is 90 years old.  He's had a good run.  If he dies, he dies.

Rumor has it that that asswipe was so tight, that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you'd have a diamond.

The problem is his he booked through Priceline. They are having issues confirming his payment.

Why would they send a bit player from Airplane 2 into space?

I sure hope someone is planning to cover the landing zone with tribbles.

germ78: Why would they send a bit player from Airplane 2 into space?


Because it's his ship now, his command. He's in charge, the boss, the head man, top dog, big cheese, a head honcho.

Bezos definitely won this round in the billionaire space race.

1.  Getting Captain James T. Kirk into space.  That in itself is a boon for Jeffy...  Elon didn't do it.  Branson didn't do it.  Bezos did, and anything related to Jeff Bezos will make a ton off of this, even if it's a t-shirt that says, "We may make the shiattiest rockets, but we put Captain Kirk in orbit.".

2.  Shatner is 90 years old, not in the greatest of health, and he's going to be riding into space with several gees pushing his old arse.  How is his 90 year old heart going to deal with being three or four times his usual weight?  Bezos still makes bank if he dies.  Shatner memorabilia, ST toys and games sold on Amazon will go through the roof.  He may not be CEO anymore, but everybody knows who runs Amazon... He may be hated for it if it happens, but he'll make a gold mint.

No matter what happens when Shatner goes up, Bezos is going to make a mint...

We are talking, 900 to 1000 lbs, I see your point

From what I've heard from people who have met Shatner, that would definitely be considered a "feature", not a "bug".

I've heard there is talk of covering it in quaddles, or even pentles.

A lot of fans will say he went out in style.

Worth it.

At 90 y.o. you don't really have a lot of time left for scratching things off your bucket list.

I know a bunch of people don't like him, but nobody wants to see his die doing this.

God speed, Captain Dunsel.
