Before Trekkies and other vacationers set sail for new frontiers on the Norwegian Jade’s one-of-a-kind Star Trek: The Cruise, William Shatner — who plays Captain Kirk in the iconic series — has a request for the company: Boldly go where many have gone before and cut the cruel “swim with dolphins” experiences from its itinerary.
In a letter to Norwegian Cruise Line CEO and president Frank J. Del Rio, Shatner wrote: "I’m so happy that Star Trek fans have the opportunity to climb aboard Norwegian Jade’s Star Trek: The Cruise and experience their own interstellar voyage of sorts. However, so long as your company offers “swim with dolphins” experiences, what should be a futuristic voyage will be set back light years.

Star Trek: Discovery is making history on the small screen.
CBS All Access' anticipated scripted series broke some casting news during Saturday's panel at Comic-Con -- and there's an unbelievable Rent connection.
Anthony Rapp, who plays Lt. Stamets, an astromycologist, fungus expert and Starfleet Science Officer aboard the Starship Discovery, revealed that fellow Rent alum Wilson Cruz will be joining the series as his character's love interest.
"I can announce that Wilson Cruz will play my love interest and my partner in Star Trek: Discovery," announced Rapp, who plays the first openly gay character in a Star Trek TV series. "I'm very proud of that and that he's a scientist."

Star Trek: Voyager hit airwaves at a time when television was a very different beast, but even considering a world that didn’t demand ratings in the same way as today’s standards would suggest, there were some serious question marks as this one progressed.
The show was obviously buoyed by the general Star Trek fan base, as well as the success of Star Trek: The Next Generation (which ended just as this one was kicking off), and the relative success of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (which started two seasons before this), but it lasted through the first couple of formative seasons largely because it was the highest rated show on upstart Upn, which had this as one of its initial offerings.
