    Default Captain Kirk reveals he won't go boldly into space

    Captain Kirk reveals he won't go boldly into space
    Last updated at 15:28pm on 6th September 2006



    As Captain Kirk he vowed to boldly go where no man had gone before, but away from the TV screen actor William Shatner is a little less adventurous - reportedly turning down a real-life space flight because he was too scared.

    The Star Trek legend was offered a ticket by Richard Branson onboard Virgin Galactic's first passenger flight in 2008. But Shatner, fearing he would be ill in space or the starship would crash, ironically revealed he's terrified of space travel.

    The 75-year-old actor said: "I'm interested in man's march into the unknown but to vomit in space is not my idea of a good time. Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me."

    Onboard the Starship Enterprise, sci-fi fans saw Shatner freely 'explore the final frontier, seeking out new life and strange new worlds' in 79 episodes of the 40-year-old TV series .

    However, apart from the Virgin craft being called Enterprise in tribute to the intrepid show, the similarities end there for Shatner as he insists getting him into space will cost Vigin boss Branston a lot more than just a free £114,000 ticket.

    He added: "I do want to go up but I need guarantees I'll definitely come back."

    But other celebrities like Alien's Sigourney Weaver are a little more enthusiastic about space travel. She has already booked her place on the two-and-a-half hour flight.
