The captain and crew of the USS Zumwalt received a letter from William Shatner and his wife.
The USS Zumwalt is captained by none other than James Kirk.
“Unfortunately I can’t be with you when your vessel is commissioned and obviously your captain, Captain Kirk, is dear to my heart,” said Shatner. “So forgive me for not attending; my schedule won’t allow me, but know that you are in our thoughts — Mr. & Mrs. Shatner — and that we bless you and hope that you have a safe journey wherever your ship takes you.”
The USS Zumwalt was commissioned last Saturday.
The letter and an autographed picture of Shatner are now on display at the Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine.
