The seventy-one-year-old actor isn't worried about the challenge, saying, "I'm physically fit. I used to run marathons, now I workout every day. I'm Japanese and love sushi. I've even eaten live fish. It was delicious."

Re: Star Trek News Bullets

I checked IMDB and Catherine Hicks is 57!!!


Always thought she was SO incredibly attractive - not in the fake boobs and looby lips Jeri Ryan way but in the natural graceful beauty and seemingly beautiful person way.

Good for her and her husband!!!
Lo and the faithful OT generation are delivered from the childhood-raping shittiness of the PT as a New Hope dawns and ........ The Force Awakens
