This week Kansas State agreed to pay a $5,000 fine to the Big 12 and suspend its marching band director after a halftime show Saturday included a routine that purportedly showed the Starship Enterprise from "Star Trek" attacking an intergalactic Kansas Jayhawks mascot using something that resembled . . . well, male genitalia.
Actor William Shatner, who played Capt. James T. Kirk in the original "Star Trek," has since boldly weighed in on the controversy via Twitter, noting the formation sure looked like the Enterprise to him and calling it a "travesty" that the league reprimanded Kansas State.
I wonder if Mother Nature needs to apologize for cloud formations with these same people? https://t.co/wl7jFzzvHA— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) September 7, 2015
