Actor Willliam Shatner Goes Off After Woke Attacks On Iconic ‘Star Trek’ Line


Iconic actor William Shatner, renowned for his role as Captain Kirk in the legendary science fiction series “Star Trek,” has taken a firm stand against ‘presentism’ – the application of contemporary values to interpret past events.

This comes in the wake of criticisms aimed at one of the most famous lines from “Star Trek.” Shatner’s response was triggered by a broader movement that seeks to revise historical content deemed inappropriate by today’s standards.

The actor took to Twitter to express his dismay, highlighting the absurdity of judging historical works, including “Star Trek,” without considering the context of their times. He argued that if such a trend continues, it could lead to the reevaluation of foundational documents and literary works like the Magna Carta and Shakespeare’s plays.

“Why start at Trek? Isn’t it better to start at the beginning and redo foundation material such as the Magna Carta, religious writings, works of Shakespeare before worrying about a silly TV show opening that reflects social commentary of the time?” Shatner tweeted.

His comments come in the wake of a report from The Sun, which discussed the European Union’s decision to ban gendered phrases and iconic quotes.

EU leaders are advocating for the prohibition of gender-specific language, insisting on retaining the iconic Star Trek phrase, “To boldly go where no man has gone before,” intact. However, they suggest altering “no man” to “no one”.

The phrase, popularized by Captain Kirk (Shatner), is marked with a red cross in a 61-page guide on gender-sensitive communication from the European Institute for Gender Equality. This EU agency cites it as an instance of “where women may be subject to invisibility or omission”.
