An attempted interview via video link with 'Star Trek' legend Shatner went terribly wrong.
A ‘Good Morning Britain’ interview with Star Trek legend William Shatner descended into farce this week, as the actor mocked the presenters’ questions and left viewers confused.
The 85 year old actor, who played Captain Kirk in the much-beloved franchise which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, appeared on ‘Good Morning Britain’ on Friday (October 7th) via video link – but production errors and a seeming lack of preparation left presenter Ben Shepherd visibly flustered and Shatner getting their names wrong and deriding their line of questioning.

The ‘Star Trek’ legend has also admitted he does not watch himself in the original series.
William Shatner has some ideas as to how to celebrate ‘Star Trek’s’ upcoming 50th anniversary and they even include a musical. Speaking to the Press Association, Shatner said he's been trying to bring the whole cast together to celebrate half a century of the iconic franchise and has even pitched a musical and a variety show.
Is William Shatner planning ‘Star Trek: The Musical’?
"I'm attempting to sell a 50th anniversary show, but so far I've had very little luck. Maybe because Paramount's going to do their own - but I don't know how they can do their own without me. I've never been contacted,” Shatner said.
With fans already getting excited about the 2018-dated 'Jurassic World' sequel, we remember five movie follow-ups that should never have been made.
Not all sequels are terrible - Toy Story, The Bourne Identity and Batman Begins all received excellent second (and third) instalments, for example - but sometimes a disastrous sequel comes along that nobody was asking for. Here are five of the worst.

Shatner's absence from Nimoy's funeral Sunday made waves online.
It was two days after Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday, that the family held a funeral for the late actor, writer, artist and beloved friend. The service - a private traditional Jewish ceremony, according to the New York Daily News - took place at an undisclosed location in Hollywood at 9am on Sunday. Without William Shatner.
It's unclear why multiple news outlets are making such a big deal out of the fact that Shatner's plane arrived a couple of hours too late for him to attend the service. But then again, Shatner didn't make it easy on himself either. The Daily News report that the actor said Saturday that he was ditching the funeral to stay in Florida to attend a charity event.
Nimoy's death was sudden and unexpected, so why is everyone making such a big deal out of Shatner's absence?

The ‘Star Trek’ actor leaves behind a legacy that stretches further than his most famous role.
The sci-fi world and beyond have united in paying tribute to actor Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on Friday afternoon at the age of 83 in Los Angeles. Nimoy was best known around the world for portraying Spock in the iconic ’Star Trek’ series, a role which he first appeared in back in 1966.
Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83
Nimoy’s ‘Star Trek’ co-star William Shatner led the tributes, writing on twitter “I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humour, his talent, and his capacity to love."
When Thunder is abandoned into the street by his owner as a kitten during a house move, he finds himself in the home of an eccentric aged magician named Lawrence and his family of friendly mechanical toys on a stormy night which gives him his name. Lawrence takes him on tour performing at parties but it soon becomes clear that he's much more popular than the magician's old pet rabbit, Jack - a fact that doesn't sit well with either Jack or the magician's mouse Maggie. However, the furry team must unite for the sake of Lawrence when trouble arises in the form of his nefarious nephew, who is attempting to sell the large house while Lawrence is away at hospital. Thunder and his new friends decide to try and convince him that the house is actually haunted, with Thunder at the forefront of the ploy. The question is, do Lawrence's unusual family have it in them to save his livelihood?

The book-selling giant take another step towards literary domination
What’s that? A giant global corporation has ignored the creative integrity of the people it profits from in order to maximize gross income, potentially alienating future authors and jeopardizing their commerce? That’s right, Amazon is all-aboard the fan fiction train, next stop: avoiding tax on the profit it makes from it!
This means a fan of a book, like Twilight for instance, could write a story with Bella, Edward and Jacob, and sell it back to readers via the Kindle store. That is, if Stephenie Meyer signs up to it, which, considering the size of the brand, she probably won’t. It also means the latent homoerotic relationship between Star Trek’s Kirk and Spock, exhibited so often by completely normal fan fiction writers, can now be a nice little earner for them. Nice that.
It’s surprising just how many authors are signing up to let their work be taken by a fan and moulded into something else. Amazon reckon the "Kindle Worlds" project is a good thing for writers, as it is "an entirely new way to monetise their valuable franchises [and] it allows them to extend their worlds with new stories and characters and more deeply engage with existing fans".

Scorch Supernova is a highly respected astronaut who also happens to be a brawny blue alien from the planet Baab. While spending his working hours rescuing distressed civilians from various planets, Scorch's intelligent but significantly scrawnier brother Gary guides him from mission control at the national space agency BASA. However, Scorch's strength and bravery is tested when the BASA chief Lena informs him of an SOS call from one extremely dangerous planet. In spite of Gary's strong warnings, Scorch sets out to rescue his fellow alien from whatever danger might be lurking but finds himself trapped and imprisoned by the planet's inhabitants; one of which is the alien-hating Shanker who vows to rid the universe of all alien lifeforms. Gary finds himself landed with a new responsibility; he must now become the rescuer and aid his brother in his escape from the dark planet and with it, secure the future of his own.
