Actor, author and director William Shatner, is known around the world as Captain James Kirk of the USS Starship Enterprise, the central character of one of the most popular and enduring adventure Sagas of all time – Star Trek. In 1956, Shatner moved from Montreal to New York to pursue acting and was an immediate success. His second TV series, Star Trek, however, was not and the show was canceled in 1969 after only three seasons. Over the following decade, while Shatner worked in countless TV shows and movies, Star Trek developed a massive and unprecedented following. The extraordinary popularity of the original television episodes led to seven popular Star Trek movies. In addition to acting in two successful TV series, T. J. Hooker and Rescue: 911, Shatner has also directed in TV and film (including Star Trek V: The Final Frontier). Today, William Shatner concentrates on writing and has published two volumes of memoirs and many novels, including the best selling Trek Wars science-fiction series.

Despite his admiration for Star Trek, Shatner initially disdained the passionate movement the show inspired. His attitude towards the “Trekkies” was summed up in an infamous line from a Saturday Night Live skit, “Get a life!” In 1994, however, Shatner finally agreed to speak at the Star Trek conventions he had avoided for close to two decades, coming face-to-face with his fans. Shatner found a fascinating community and spent the next four years studying the movement he helped create. “Get a Life” is William Shatner‘s witty, honest and illuminating journey into the world of the “Trekkies” and his own legacy.
