Shatner lashes out at Star Trek co-star Takei Add to ...

William Shatner is setting his phaser to stun against his old Star Trek co-star George Takei.

In a video posted on Shatner's website this week, the Montreal-born actor lashed out at Takei for not inviting him to his wedding last month. The 77-year-old Shatner said Takei, who played Enterprise helmsman Sulu, apparently harbours a grudge against him that kept him from being invited to Takei's nuptials.

"The whole thing makes me feel badly," Shatner said in the video. "Poor man. There is such a sickness there.... I don't know what his original thing about me was. I have no idea."

Takei and Brad Altman tied the knot Sept. 14. Star Trek alums Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig - who played Uhura and Chekhov, respectively - were among the attendees at the multicultural ceremony in Los Angeles.

"It is unfortunate that Bill was unable to join us for our wedding as he indeed was invited to attend," Takei responded.
