WATCH: Chris Pine Channels His Inner Shatner In SNL 'Star Trek' Sketch

Chris Pine, who has played Captain James T. Kirk in all three installments of the rebooted Star Trek film franchise, hosted Saturday Night Live this week. In addition to playing part in several other sketches along with his hosting duties, Pine played a very Shatner-esque version of Kirk during an Original Series-inspired segment.

The segment depicted the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in a lost 81st episode of The Original Series titled “Spock’s Secret.”

Check out the video, along with a few of Pine’s other appearances on the show, below.

    Omg. No wonder. That was such an epic fail.

    My God that is utterly cringeworthy because of that Spocks brother ‘thing’.

    That was awful. Jesus. They have Pine there, why don’t they make use of him??? I love Shatner’s Kirk, but there is much to poke fun of about him. Pine literally just sat in the chair the whole time. What a wasted opportunity for a great sketch.

    Now I remember why I quit staying up for SNL years ago? How long has it been since they made anything truly funny (other than making fun of politicians, which never gets old)?

    Gave it one minute…
    I’m sure there’s a punchline waiting for me around minute two, a fart joke or it’s equivalent in minutes three and four, and that the scene will trail off sadly in minute five.

    I want my minute back.

      Unfortunately, that’s something decided by the content provider (in this case SNL), not us.

    B.S. location/geo lock on the video. F#$k you SNL! Canada gets your show on Saturdays but we cant watch your online content??
