Well this is a surprise. We all know about the interracial kiss that rocked the world on “Star Trek” on November 22, 1968 but did you know that kiss was originally supposed to be between Uhura and Spock, not Uhura and Kirk?

When they ask that Dr. McCoy stay on their planet just in case they ever need a doctor, disagreements follow and the people use their powers to humiliate Kirk and the others by making them do silly dances and the like. They even make Spock express emotion. But the news-worthy bit came when they forced Kirk and Uhura to kiss.
As far as what we already know from history, the story was Kirk/Uhura was what was written in the script but after concerns from NBC executives, they thought to change the kiss to Spock/Uhura but William Shatner insisted they keep with what was written.

Several folks have noted that Sarah Palin‘s words kinda sound like poetry. But William Shatner seems to believe that on a whole ‘nother lever. On Monday night, Shatner did a spoken word performance as only the master of sexy slow talk can do, and on Wednesday’s Conan O’Brien, he recited some of Palin’s tweets, proving he needed no more than 140 words to create a performance masterpiece. Oh, oh. I hope this obsession leads to romance. I would vote Palin for president if William Shatner were her vice president slash lovah. More after the jump… Keep reading »

5. Sam Jones as Flash Gordon The bleach blond muscle-bound babe was tough enough to play professional football and fight off intergalactic bad guys. He was an eyeful in spandex on screen, but if you want to see Flash in the flesh, check out his nsfw Playgirl pictorial from ‘75. We’re pretty sure the “Flash! O-oh!” lyric from the theme song came after Freddie Mercury saw this spread. Keep reading »
