Now, here’s a man who believes his own publicity. Having convinced a generation of TV lovers that the future would look like the 60s but in space, Shatner found himself having his very own alien encounter. Following a bike crash in the Mojave Desert, he saw a shadowy figure beckoning to him and it led him to what looked like a silver disc hanging in the sky. He later denied that the incident ever happened, but the wording of his denial was so confusing that no-one knows for certain what he was even trying to say.However, he is insistent that aliens do exist, saying “In my mind, there is no doubt that the universe teems – teems! – with life in all its forms.” He might have just spent too much time on the Star Trek set, but this is a man who’s sure that there is something Out There.
