    Well, I guess it wasn’t a Federation Starship, as that would be a violation of the Prime Directive. God I’m a nerd when that’s the first think I think on reading this.

    Did they get the story from him at the same time the picture was taken? If so, did they think to check what the Captain was smoking there at the time?

    Good thing he wasn’t flying in a plane. He might have gotten all freaked out.

    And then the “thing” said to Shatner “Hi. Thing from another world, here. Big fan. Would you read my T.J. Hooker spec?”

    I am stone cold swiping this for my own blog.

    If he was rescued ‘moments later’ then he was, what, 100 feet from help? They probably said “Look left idiot, there’s a lemonade stand right next to you. Oh yeah, and next time fill the tank.”

    I read recently where he said he made the whole thing up just for publicity. I figured that at the time even though I was just a kid!
    Here is another article on the same report.
