Fascinating account by William Shatner on his relationship with George Takei, where he seems to try to sincerely understand why Takei doesn't like him, even perhaps using the account as a public question. Composed on Shatner's personal stationery, autograph signed recollection reads in full, ''George Takei was living in a beautifully appointed apartment. I was there to interview him for a book I was writing. He was most gracious - kind, mannered even formal. He was the essence of an Asian gentleman. We talked memories of Star Trek, his very difficult childhood given that he and his family were put behind a wired fence - in effect a concentration camp. We were at war with Japan and American fears were such that the government put everybody with a Japanese background into those camps - what a terrible beginning of life. But George had overcome [by] working hard and with intelligence he had bettered himself - he had disciplined his body as a runner and he had done the same with his mind; he was running for office as well. His apartment showed all that discipline - it was ordered, it had character, it was immaculate and so was George. I had never really got to know him. He would come in every so often during the week while we were shooting Star Trek. I was busy learning lines and dealing with my life, so I really can't remember a meaningful conversation - I'm sure that would be my fault - my lack of attention - Never the less when we all wrapped that last day of shooting it was all meaningfull [sic] - for all of us - Star Trek was cancelled. Until this moment in his apartment we had not spoken. Not so long after that very friendly time he began to say very mean things about me. - Why? / William Shatner''.
