William Shatner has embarrassing trouser malfunction…

Poor captain Kirk was left feeling like a berk…

Star Trek – and all-round  – legend William Shatner suffered a very embarrassing episode last week at Los Angeles International airport in front of dozens, if not hundreds, of fellow travellers.
Shatner was heading to catch a flight to South Africa he was taken aside by security for a random check (didn’t they recognise him? Or maybe they did O.o) when, during the frisk-down, his trousers fell down revealing the Shat’s boxers to the world!
Shatner said after the event: “It was awful to have people looking at me with my pants down, probably the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me… It was a long flight so I wanted to wear loose clothing because I didn’t want anything to bind me.”

Oh dear…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
