Matt Decker Star Trek
« on: February 21, 2020, 10:30:53 AM »
In court at moment in Will County. Spotted a lawyer here who looks almost exactly like Matt Decker from the planet killer episode. I went up and told him and a colleague of his was in total agreement.

I should have asked him "Matt, where's your crew?"

"They're on the third planet."


"Matt! There is no third planet!"

"Don't you think I know that?! There was. But not'ny more!"

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Get his unofficial autograph...

You do realize that being able to quote all the lines from an obscure Star Trek episode is the height of nerd-ism?

Yes totally. Star Trek left a lasting impression on me.

Grew up on the re-runs. Much respect, especially for Bill Shatner for staying relevant so far into late life. He's 88 years old today.

No Brian, I can't quote anything.  ;)

Ok here goes my nerdiness.....
The episode was called the doomsday machine. William Windom played Commodore Decker. He knocked it out of the park! His ship was the USS Constellation. They used the wrecked constellation to destroy the planet killer, right after Decker committed suicide in a shuttlecraft by ramming down the gullet of the machine.
I watched it primetime back in the 60's. Left a lasting impression on me of what the future could be. It was a great show!
Ok, now you can laugh😃🤣😆

Not a quote, but he stayed relevant in Boston Legal when he shot the would be mugger in the knee cap and both feet.

Nothing to laugh about. You have any idea how many became doctors in real life because of McCoy or engineers because of Scotty or men of science because of Spock? These guys I still hold on high regard at the age of 56. Same for Shatner. He was  a role model for me growing up to emphasize innovativeness under pressure or simply not giving up when all seemed lost.

Watch it all the time on Roku, BTW I'm 57 and used to watch it in prime time as well and left a lasting impression 8)
Coulda been a Shelby owner many times in the 80's/90's. Was always so close but yet, so far away for me......
