Gov Kodos, thanks so much for linking this. It's one of the better interviews with Shatner I've seen. He handles the "common" questions quite freshly. Well done.

Your welcome, I enjoyed it quite a bit. I was happy to note Shatner mentioned the kiss with Uhura as not being as ground breaking as it might of been because the characters were forced into it rather than of their own choice. It's something that has always made me feel the scene has been overly lauded for just that very external compulsion.

Also, you can tell they're not really kissing. It's actually pretty unconvincing.

Yep. They just touch lower lips. You can plainly see Shatner's open mouth below his upper lip. So when I read about how Shatner "snuck in the kiss", just in time where they couldn't do another take, I was like "what kiss?"

Right. If you treat the kiss as being real, then you have say him trying to whip her and everything else they had planned for them would have been real.

I think it was in Shatner's "Star Trek Memories" and it struck me as one of the few stories to feel actually true; something about they shot it multiple times there was a choice of going with an actual kiss or a fake one. They "copped out" went with the fake one and he said "when you watch the episode next time, you'll see it."

The book is in my attic somewhere, so I can't dig it out at the moment....
