William Shatner Shares Captain’s Log Updates During His Quarantine

A few weeks ago, William Shatner confirmed that he’s not interested in having one last go at playing James T. Kirk. However, that’s not to say he’s above having fun with fans on social media. Shatner is on lockdown in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. And to kill time during his exile, he’s been posting a few Captain’s Log updates, just like Kirk did on the classic Star Trek series.

Thankfully, Shatner isn’t spending his self-quarantine alone. As his messages show, he’s currently enjoying the company of his two dogs, Espresso and Macchiato.

The Coronavirus has notably caused just about every form of live entertainment to be postponed until after the pandemic has been contained. Unfortunately, Shatner has also felt those effects. Shatner was recently planning to embark on a series of international tour dates. Additionally, those shows would have included screenings of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. But now that those have been canceled, Shatner offered some encouraging words to his European followers.

Sadly, this might be the closest we’ll ever get to seeing Shatner formally revisit the Star Trek universe. Although he believes Kirk’s story has “played out” the reaction to these latest tweets prove that the love for the original Starfleet captain is alive and well.
