Star Trek’s William Shatner will appear as a guest at the fan’s wedding.
Two Star Trek fans, Jim Grant and Amway Wells got married this November in Ticonderoga, NY. If you recognize the city, this is where fans make it Star Trek Original Series Tour is located. The two fans got married at a hotel in front of friends and family like most couples, but unlike most couples, their guest cast included a former Admiral. Starfleet. Well, he did play one on TV anyway; William Shatner.
Follow Newspapers (via Daily Stars Trip), Grant met Shatner on the Set Tour a few years ago, and then he and his then-fiancée chatted with Shatner in a virtual and wonderful encounter in 2020. When it was revealed they were both engaged , Shatner asked the couple when to date. was, Grant quipped, “I told my friends I was getting married when William Shatner came to my wedding.”
Let this be a lesson to anyone who gives Shatner a chance to do something a little crazy and to his liking. The man who flew into space at the age of 90, if you present him with another kind of opportunity, he will.
Needless to say, Shatner was involved.
William Shatner really blessed a wedding.
Shatner seems to love love very much and wants to attend as a way to promote love in all its forms. So, on the day of the wedding, Shatner arrived, gave the opening remarks, and then re-read the lines he delivered in the original Star Trek episode, “Balance of Terror.” This all came down to being behind the same change used in the episode itself.
It’s impressive that Shatner got married just to do this for two fans. It speaks to his personality and his affection for the Star Trek fan base. While some of the franchise’s stars can only take on so many seasons or so many movies before looking for something else to do; Mostly to avoid being associated with just that one franchise, Shatner and many other Trek alumni continue to return to the series and their fanbase.
It speaks volumes about the love the cast, crew, and fans have for each other as well as the series as a whole.
Kudos makes Shatner and the couple happy because of a bad story.
