Uh, no, kind of more than that. Linky

Oh, all right...

Vaughn Armstrong was in The Philadelphia Experiment with Glenn Morshower
Glenn Morshower was in Star Trek: Generations with William Shatner

Now, don't screw THIS one up:

Peter Cullen

Ah. Guess I need to bone up on my voice actors.

Although I can probably be forgiven for not recognizing him as readily as, say, Bruce Willis or Keanu Reeves . . . or even Harlan Ellison!

No, not really. Lots of TV. Only about 3 movies.

I, the Gaithmeister, was an extra in Just Like Heaven, sharing a shot or two with Reese Witherspoon, who was in the 1998 Twilight, whose cast included Paul Newman, who appeared in 1964's The Outrage, in which the Shat also appeared.

This gives me a Shatner score of 3.

Hah! Very good.

Come to think of it, I appear onscreen in the Bonus Features of the WRATH OF KHAN, so does that give me a Shatner score of 1?

Two degrees.

A fun way to do it:
Alec Baldwin was in The Departed with Martin Sheen (1)
Martin Sheen was in Cadence with Charlie Sheen (2)
Charlie Sheen was in Platoon with Tony Todd (3)
Tony Todd was on Star Trek TNG with Michael Dorn(4)
Michael Dorn was in TUC with Shat (5)

Re: 6 Degrees of William Shatner

John Wayne ----> Dennis Hopper (True Grit (1969).)
Dennis Hopper ----> Glen Morshowser (24, Season 1.)
Glen Morshowser ----> Patrick Stewart (TNG, Season 2, "Peak Performance.")
Patrick Stewart ----> Leonard Nimoy (TNG, Season 5, "Unification I/II.")
Leonard Nimoy ----> William Shatner (TOS Series and Related Movies.)

EDIT. Movies only?! That strikes me as too limiting, but whatever.

John Wayne ----> Dennis Hopper (True Grit (1969).)
Dennis Hopper ----> Sandra Bullock (Speed.)
Sandra Bullock ----> William Shatner (Miss Congeniality.)

(Which actually got it done quicker, I guess, without having to think along a "Star Trek" connection. Still, Shatner has more TV work than film work, meh. Whatever.)
