with the possible exception of Beam me up, Scotty, is clearly the most repeated catch-phrase in the history of Star Trek(R). Poking fun at Star Treks gung-ho fans and conventions in a now infamous Saturday Night Live sketch, William Shatners comic rallying cry has been indelibly emblazoned into the collective psyche of trekkers everywhere.

Its now also given birth to an honest, sentimental, insightful audiobook. Uncomfortable with speaking onstage, William Shatner had spent the better part of the previous quarter century steadfastly avoiding convention appearances. However, to publicize the release of Star Trek Generations, Shatner agreed to a rare series of speaking engagements at Star Trek conventions around the globe. He was jolted by an unavoidable dose of reality. Shatner was met with wild enthusiasm, love and good humor at convention after convention. Touched and fascinated, he was overwhelmed with the realization that, in almost three decades of starship hopping, hed never really taken the time to enjoy or understand Star Treks fans or their conventions.For the past several years, William Shatner has been treating each Star Trek convention like an enormous research project.

Interviewing fans, dealers, fellow castmembers, convention organizers and promoters -- even going undercover beneath alien makeup -- Shatners been scouring convention floors. Having grilled trekkers and trekkies in all corners of the planet, Shatner has amassed a small mountain of research material, and cultivated his findings in Get A Life!A first-person journey of discovery told with self-deprecating wit, unflagging honesty, and his trademarkenthusiasm and humor, Get a Life!

tells William Shatners own story of how the actor who played the now deceased starship captain, James T. Kirk, can finally come to grips with his past, his fans, their love, and his own intergalactic legacy.
