"Not an angel"

Nimoy to Shatner: "So... seen any good movies lately?"

Trekkers of all stripes lined up as early as 5 a.m. in Atlanta, Georgia, for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see two titans of “Star Trek” together. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy’s appearance today at the annual Dragon-Con was a raucous treat.

Taking on a roast-like atmosphere from the very beginning, the appearance was like eavesdropping on a conversation between two old friends who enjoyed ripping into each other mercilessly. It was an event that Dragon-Con “Star Trek” programming director Eric L. Watts said he never imagined would take place.

At the start, Nimoy brought up the recent smash hit reboot of “Trek” on the big screen by asking Shatner, “Seen any good movies lately?”

There's more. ;]

When I'm almost 80, I sure hope I can laugh at myself the way these guys do. Goddamn, but that shit is funny!

Update! Someone got it on video:
