Shatner, now 84, went on to voice his famous character on "Star Trek: The Animated Series" and appeared in seven "Star Trek" movies. Since leaving the USS Enterprise behind, Shatner has found great success in television, including a stint as a veteran police sergeant on "T. J. Hooker" in the early 1980s and a role as attorney Denny Crane on "The Practice" and "Boston Legal."
In addition to acting, Shatner has released three studio albums and supports several children's charities. He will reportedly host a "Star Trek"-themed cruise in 2017. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
