I wonder if there are reports from any actors/crew other than the secondary TOS cast?

I mean, if the guy is an egotistical jerk, wouldn't somebody else have noticed somewhere down the line?
They have. You catch enough folks on the convention circuit - guest actors on TOS, some of the new cast in the Bennett-produced Star Trek movies - and they've said similar things, from the dismissive attitude on to line hogging/counting, etc.
I've been to lots of conventions, and have heard the stories. He'll I've met the man twice and thought he was quite unfriendly and ungracious.

But still that's all Star Trek stuff. What about all his other work? Has anyone else complained about this stuff?
I've no idea - never seen a live appearance by the third-cop-from-the-left on T.J. Hooker.

Of course, Shatner's situation on Boston Legal was very different - he was first among equals in an ensemble cast that included people like Candice Bergen; it was not a set where he was likely to throw his weight around.
