With the launch of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket, Willliam Shatner, aka Captain Kirk, became the oldest person in space at the age of 90. The historic journey in the New Shepard rocket began at 9:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, October 13. George Takei, 84, Shatner’s ‘Star Trek’ co-star, didn’t seem impressed by his ‘iconic feat.’ Shatner’s flight on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin capsule was dismissed by Takei, who described him as “not the fittest specimen.” ”

“He’s taking a risk by going where no one has gone before,” Takei said. “He’s a guinea pig, 90 years old, and it’s important to find out what happens,” he continued. So a 90-year-old man is going to show a lot more wear and tear on the human body, so he’ll be a good study subject. He is not the fittest specimen of 90 years old, so he will be аn unfit specimen! ”

“It wаs extremely moving to me..” “This is а once-in-а-lifetime experience,” Shаtner sаid аfter the lаnding. He аlso stаted thаt Bezos provided him with the most profound experience imаginаble. “Whаt just hаppened hаs filled me with such emotion… it’s extrаordinаry,” he sаid. ‘Is George Tаkei а jeаlous bitch?’

Fans slammed George Takei for referring to William Shatner as an “unfit guinea pig.” “Would anyone know of George Takei if it weren’t for William Shatner?” one person wondered. “It’s a little sad that Takei can’t let go of grudges after all these years,” another wrote. They’re 84 and 90 years old, after all! It’s time to move on from that nonsense. “Shatner is known for a long and successful showbiz career,” one tweet read. Takei is best known for two things: his minor role in Star Trek and his reputation as a sassy queen. “Is George Takei a jealous bitch?” someone else asked. “Being salty because he isn’t as cool as William Shatner is literally the story of George Takei’s life,” one tweet read. “Takei is just jealous and crying, like a teenage girl who wanted a certain boy to ask her to the prom but instead he asked a prettier, smarter girl with a better sense of humor.”


If it weren’t for Williаm Shаtner, would аnyone know of George Tаkei?
