I don't hold it against him that he called the guy who successfully re-booted Star Trek - without a cameo appearance by him - a pig for taking on the Star Wars franchise on top of future Trek sequels...
William Shatner is rallying the power of Trekkies to try to get a newly-discovered moon of Pluto named Vulcan, after the planet in the world of Star Trek that was home to Mr. Spock. The SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute launched an online effort to name the recently-discovered fourth and fifth moons of Pluto, putting up suggested names for a vote and also encouraging write-in names to be submitted. Shatner, who iconically played Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek, proposed Vulcan, and with the Trekkies behind him, the name is winning by a landslide. Cerberus and Styx are in a close fight for second place. The results will be submitted to the International Astronomical Union for consideration. All three of Pluto's named moons have been inspired by Greek mythology, called Charon, Nix and Hydra, and it would be breaking with tradition if the name Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, is chosen.
