O captain, my captain … William Shatner is 79 today, and here’s hoping he keeps on going boldly through life for many, many more years. To mark the day, let’s revisit one of our favorites here at Hero Complex, the genius philosophy of “Shatner of the Mount” …

    I can't believe that he is actually 79..He was so young when he played in StarTrek, I just saw an episode with him a little bit earlier, the second pilot entitled "Where No Man Has Gone Before". It's amazing how time flies by so fast.

  2. Excellent post about the Shat-man. He is an American Icon and I hope he's around for another 79 years. In my blog on today's heroes, I plan to profile his career contributions.
