Kirk and Spock arrive at a small paved clearing. There is a black door. They wander towards it and there is a puff of smoke. A man with a sparkly running suit with padded shoulders appears.Kirk: Who are youMing: I am Ming the merciless. Kneel when you address me.Kirk: I'd rather not..housemaids knee you know.(Ming twists the jewel of a ring on his finger and an ear splitting noise screeches out){wowwowwowaaaa}Ming: Kneel, now.(Kirk and Spock fight the ray but are unable to prevent it forcing them down. Ming switches it off.)Kirk: Who are you?Ming: I should have been in charge for longer. I was in charge but they said I was too old. But I am not too old am I?Spock: Clearly not.Kirk: What do you want with us?Ming: I want power.Kirk: Oh that's easy, I saw a tv box over there. Should be a socket in there.(Noise){wowwowwowaaa}Kirk: Okay, I get it, no gagsSpock: He appears to have no sense of humour or your 'gags' do not work through the universal translator.Kirk: How can we help you?Ming: I want to take my rightful place in there.Kirk: Go ahead. Press the doorbell.(aside to Spock) are we on?Spock: Yes captain.Ming: I will be a great leader.Kirk: (aside to Spock) That's what they all say.(Ming presses the doorbell and there is a large flash and all that is left is his smoking boots.Kirk: Another one bites the dust.Spock: I did not see any dust.Kirk: It's an idiomSpock: Ah.

Not like other Canadians at all really.He was really goodin the early days of Captain Kirk, but that's all really. Perhaps it has gone to his head?

"Pauses" and looks at the camera meaningfully. I am a Shakesperian - albeit Canadian - actor who appeared in the "Judgement at Nuremberg" film with the wonder who is called "Spencer Tracy" and am now reduced to a space sitcom?May I suggest replacing that redundant "a" with an "i", Eddie? No offence, Bill. That wasn't so much a quote as a small book.

C'mon, the script writers gave Kirk some of the dumbest lines ever uttered on American television."And Mr. Spock, send down some heaters. Da Federation is takin' over dis planet." Sometimes I laughed so hard you'd think the comedy was intentional.

You know, Captain's Log. We, you know, met the Klingons. And, look, they're a proud. People. With their own culture. And I respect that. So when Commander Kor demanded. My surrender. I said to him, 'Hey, I hear what you're. Saying. But I. Did. Not. Enter. The Neutral Zone. And if I had. I would have been. Perfectly. Justified due to the intelligence that. The Romulans had a disruptor beam. That could be fired within 45 milliseconds.' Spock is eyeing up my command chair again. I told him I'd step aside at the end of the five-year mission. Or maybe the next one..." Thu 17 Jul 2008 10:57:39 GMT+1 David_McNickle http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/07/shatner_week_todays_quote_2.shtml?page=52#comment9 Didn't. Ernest Hemming. Way.

I mean, intense look he got on certain words. That was good too.If it sounds like I'm knocking him, I'm not. I was watching the cartoon Star Trek recently (originally tea-time on Saturdays for those reading the other nostalgic thread) and he's really a rather good voice-over artist.
