Shatner couldn't make the christening, but sent a latter to the crew

The USS Zumwalt is one of the most futuristic ships in the Navy fleet and it was christened on Saturday. The ship is the most technologically advanced destroyer in the US Navy and its captain has the rather fitting name for a captain of James Kirk. No, seriously. Apparently, the crew of the ship invited William Shatner to the christening of the vessel, but he was unable to make the event reports Business Insider.


Rather not showing up and making no effort, Shatner did send a letter that was in a very nice frame along with an autographed photo. Barbara Zumwalt, the wife of Admiral Zumwalt where the ship gets its name, tweeted the picture of the letter Shatter sent.

The letter reads, "Unfortunately I can't be with you when your vessel is commissioned and obviously your captain, Captain Kirk, is dear to my heart," Shatner wrote. "So forgive me for not attending, my schedule won't allow me, but know that you are in our thoughts — Mr. & Mrs. Shatner — and that we bless you and hope that you have a safe journey wherever your ship takes you."

That is very cool; I wonder where the letter and photo will end up. I think it would be fitting to be placed in the captains quarters, or perhaps the mess hall where the crew can look at it whenever they want. While the Zumwalt was christened, it will still be a long time before it joins the Navy fleet.
