Star Trek’s Capt Kirk turns down Branson’s space flight invitation because he’s scared of flying
As Captain James T Kirk he was ready to boldly go where no man has gone before.
But it's been claimed that William Shatner turned down the chance to travel into space aboard Virgin Galactic's Spaceship Two because he's scared of flying.
Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson said he offered the original Star Trek star the opportunity to be among the first extraterrestrial tourists because of his links with space.
But the billionaire said the 82-year-old Canadian actor turned down the offer because he's scared to take to the skies.
'He actually said he's frightened of airline travel - which is slightly disillusioning. Captain Kirk is scared of flying,' the Sun quoted Sir Richard as saying.
