William Shatner spoke to AARP The Magazine’s Bill Newcott about the 50th anniversary of “Star Trek.” My favorite quote:
I was making a documentary, and I needed an airplane. So I cold-called an executive at the Canadian airplane manufacturer Bombardier and asked to borrow one. He said, “Sure! I became an aeronautical engineer because of you. This is my payback.”
