Canadian legend William Shatner, starship captain, author, and the star of the touring show 'Shatner's World', turns 81 today. He was on the program recently reflecting on his long career as an entertainer, saying yes to everything, and following Christopher Plummer.

He's getting some love on Twitter from fellow members of the Trek-verse. Levar Burton from 'Star Trek: The Next Generation', tweeted this:

We want to wish Bill another happy birthday. He's the definition of 81 years young. Check out the interview below:

And if you happen to be in Texas right now, or you're headed for St. Louis, Missouri in April, there are a few dates left on the 'Shatner's World' tour:

March 22, 2012 - Majestic Theatre - Dallas, Texas
