I disagree. I think Shatner is every big as rude and egotistical as he comes across in his post. His age may certainly be heightening it, but he needs to get off the air and out of the spotlight. It's just embarassing, and his attitude is becoming the exact opposite of the thing Trek stood for.
Actually, he's ALWAYS had that attitude.

Nothing new here.

Re: Shatner Taunts Takei

Shat and Takei both have huge egos. The difference between them was, Shat was the star and barely even noticed Takei, whereas Takei wished he were the star and constantly whined his ass off for 40 years about how Shatner (the star) was hogging glory and screen-time from him (the glorified extra who half the time wasn't even in an episode at all).

Well, excuse him, George. Even if the opening credits say "Starring William Shatner", and your name is nowhere to be seen, I guess he should just be bending over to please you anyway. Stop being such a drama queen, sometimes a show's star is self centered. Believe it or not. It's not a personal insult, it happens.

Anyway, personally I think Shat is justified in rubbing Takei's nose in it a little after all these years. That said, I'm not 100% sure this fued is as serious as they make it out to be. I have no doubt that there is bad blood between them, but it could be dramatized for our viewing pleasure a bit...

I'm suddenly reminded of how I would hear a group of people shouting to another group the following:

"TETSUUUUOOOOOOOOO!"

"KANEEEEDDDDAAAAAAA!"

I think this nuanced view is pretty much spot on, although I wouldn't go so far as to think it 'right' for a star to be egocentric; star!=egocentric asshole.

They both have big egos, they came from very different acting positions such that one ego seemed at least somewhat justified whereas the other seemed pathetic; they probably aren't one another's biggest fans, but then again, they are both actors and see the value in milking this, so yes, probably a mix of animosity and business savvy.

I think the record is pretty clear: this was Takei's issue originally; he clearly had some unresolved perceived 'hurts'. However, Takei was a fool to think that he could start the Shat and then just turn off the faucet. Once the shat gets started, it runs for a long time.

His attitude should not have to be in line of what Trek stood for. Hes an actor and nothing like Captain Kirk. Never was and never will be. He William Shatner. I think hes pretty funny and most people just dont get it.

Re: Shatner Taunts Takei

I think it's all silly, but you know I've gotta award this whole thing to The Shat on style points - he lacks the sense of personal injury and righteous distain that Takei manages to conjure up over the whole thing and is therefore funnier and a little less tiresome.
