Want to boldy go where only William Shatner has been before? Now you can -- a whole crapload of one-of-a-kind Star Trek goodies are going up for auction on June 27 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Items up for grabs include hand-annotated scripts, series creator Gene Roddenberry's studio pass, costumes and William Shatner's beloved Harley-Davidson.
"I handed the motorcycle over and it was a part of my heart, but that's only figuratively speaking," the 79-year-old Shatner said. "I had the great fortune of doing the same thing with a kidney stone," he continued. "I passed a kidney stone, and a company offered me $75,000 for my kidney stone."
Shatner donated his kidney stone money to Habitat for Humanity, but the funds raised from the Harley and other Star Trek items up for auction will be donated to the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, which helps handicapped children.
In addition to the Harley, Shatner is also donating his Golden Globe nomination certificate and the plaque he was presented with when he got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Not as exciting as a kidney stone, for sure, but still a very nice thing to do for a very nice charity.
