Spock Vs. Kirk - Cosmic Idol Edition


Whether you're a Trekkie or not, you've no doubt at some point in your life made an obscure Star Trek reference, quoted some line from the show or at the very least did a very bad William Shatner impression. The weird ones among you may have even done it with a green chick - but I digress.

Captain Kirk hit this..........

Star Trek has come a long way from the original brain child of Gene Roddenberry that debuted on television in 1966 and originally only ran for three seasons. In the forty three years that followed, it spawned four spin-offs, an animated series, several comic books and eleven movies with another one in production as I write this.

Instead of this........

The series has spawned many memorable and endearing characters but without a doubt the biggest reason for it's success was the dynamic relationship between Captain James T. Kirk and Mr Spock played impeccably by William Shatner and Leonard Nemoy. There have always been rumors and stories about feuding on set and scene stealing accusations, but it was very clear these two had a rivalry going. Even when it came to music.

But he could have done worse.


Both Will and Lenny dabbled in the performing arts. Here are two examples of them expressing themselves artistically. Remember as you watch these that these were both serious performances and not meant to be a gag, comedy bit or any attempt to try and be funny. These are two serious performers doing their best to entertain. We can look at it one of two ways - which of these two is the ultimate galactic crooner or which of these two laid the largest Klingon turd.......your call.
