Sitting on a sofa while his large doberman rests upon his lap, William Shatner offered the invitaion for the winner and a friend to be his personal VIP guests. In addition to enjoying all of the perks that entails, Shatner stated the winner and guest will be flown to England and enjoy lunch with William, take photos together and even go on the panel with him where they will have the chance to ask William Shatner their questions directly.
William Shatner explained the following in his video.
“I guess you can say this is your chance to explore a new world with Captain Kirk. We’ll have lunch together, take some pictures, I’ll even bring on stage to ask a few questions during my panel. In other words, you’ll get to boldly go where no fan has gone before, onstage as my VIP guest.”
The very first episode of Star Trek aired on September 8, 1966 and was titled “The Man Trap.” As Star Trek just celebrated its 52nd birthday, news of William Shatner’s charitable contest and opportunity to meet Captain Kirk is going viral.
William Shatner has a busy schedule. On Monday, he will appear on NBC’s Today, has a new Christmas album available for preorder, and will attend the ICCC 2018 Convention in Nashville on September 14 and September 15.
