Trekkies Trip Out About Shatner Modifications

moddedshatner.jpg

In a recent DirecTV spot featuring footage from Star Trek VI William Shatner's reincarnation as a die-hard DirecTV enthusiast gets Trekkies all bent out of shape. Sure it's a fun ad, but what about the ethics of modifying his uniform, making Shatner slimmer and turning a DirecTV plug into a new generation's last impression of him?

This is way too lame - er, heavy for us but Adfreak does a good job of digging deep into the psychology of the Trekkie dilemma. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
