A joke *too real for Shatner*? I had no idea such a thing was possible.

It was doing that the first time I opened this thread, then later, the link worked. Antony's been doing some fiddling with TrekToday and the CMS, so I'd guess the 404 is related to that.

Does this link work?

Try this.

(It seems the article URLs are being changed from a ".html" ending to just "/" and the links in the TTNI forum haven't been modified to reflect this. All I've been doing is going to the TrekToday link at the top of the "page not found" page or in the sidebar of any page, and scanning until I find the desired title -- the articles are there, but the links are buggered.)

Looks like there's some problems with columns drifting and obscuring the text of the article.

No, his lawyers thought it was real. They didn't realize that it was a joke.

I very much doubt that Shatner himself had much, if anything, to do with this.
