Post by Four-Who-Are-One »




They're both larger than life and playing the long game. Which is the bigger living legend?

I voted for Simmons. They are both two of my childhood heroes.

It's close but I have to go Shatner. He's had a longer, more varied career, plus he's been to space at 90! And Star Trek is my second favourite franchise after Star Wars.

Gene is more talented but Shatner has the better wig.

Went with Shatner. He wins for being Denny Crane!

KISS and Star Trek TOS are my top two favorite obsessions, but after today, I'm going to have to go with Shatner.

Now if there was a transporter accident that somehow merged the two personalities into one being called Gene Shatner...

I am a Trekkie, too. I have seen every episode of TOS.

"Denny Crane."

I mean, come on! James T. Kirk, Thomas J. Hooker, Denny Crane. Shatner has been a star for 55 years on a bigger platform than KISS ever had.

It's weird - I my first thought was that I consider them as two American icons, but neither are actually American-born!

Shatner by a long shot. I wouldn't even say they are in the same league.

Shatner taught me the life saving technique of running in a zigzag pattern when taking on sniper fire but I voted Gene.

When you've been Captain James Tiberius Kirk, TJ Hooker, Denny Crane (Denny Crane), when you've "Christened" space shuttles, when you've been William Shatner all your life - and now you're an astronaut at 90 - we're dealing with the ultimate alpha here :)

My vote goes for Shat himself.

All salute. They don't make em like him any more.

Weird that CAPTAIN FREAKING KIRK has gone to space but all the references I've seen (including from The Shat himself) have been to Elton John's Rocket Man!!
