I just watched "The Captains", and it reminded me of a story I once heard Shatner tell. I believe it was on the Carson show, possibly when he was doing pub for TMP. He told a story of how he got into a cab, and the driver recognized him. The driver then proceeded to tell him how he was captured by the Viet Cong during Vietnam, and in the prison he was held with a bunch of other soldiers that were from all over the US. The only thing they had in common was that they were Trek fans. They would go over the eps, each one trying to remember the shows line by line. The man said that this helped them keep their sanity while they were imprisoned and tortured, and he wanted to thank Shatner. Shatner related how deeply this effected him. The thing is, I never have heard Shatner relate that story again, either in interviews or his books, or at conventions. Has anyone else ever heard him relate this story? I'm beginning to wonder if it's just more of the famed Shatner hyperbole.
