Tweets of the Week

Starfleet meets the Canadian Space Agency, Simon Pegg’s severed head and Nathan Fillion’s method for coping with the end of Firefly , all in the latest Tweets Of The Week

There are plenty of things wrong with Twitter. The relentless, ever-changing list of trending topics that make you question how we survived to this point as a species, for one, but where else could you read a conversation between Captain Kirk and a real astronaut?

@WilliamShatner @Cmdr_Hadfield Are you tweeting from space? MBB

@Cmdr_Hadfield @WilliamShatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we're detecting signs of life on the surface.

As if that wasn’t geek-tastic enough, Wesley Crusher and Mister Spock joined in too:

Wil Wheaton

@wilw @Cmdr_Hadfield If you get into trouble with Nanites while you're in orbit, I know a guy who can help you contain them. He has experience.

@Cmdr_Hadfield @wilw Wesley, we've talked about you being on the bridge. I believe you're needed in Engineering. :)

@TheRealNimoy @Cmdr_Hadfield . LLAP

@Cmdr_Hadfield I am not Spock either, but living and working in this spaceship comes pretty close. Life mirrors art. LLAP, @therealNimoy .

Oh, Twitter, how did we ever make do without thee?

Tweets of the Week continues on page 2...

@carnojoe My crossover idea for Transformers 4: Open on Tatooine %26 realize to your shock/horror that one of its twin a fucking Decepticon!

@simonpegg I think it might be worth pointing out that 'The World's End, due to land August, this year, is not about the end of the world

It has nothing to do with Camden or Pirates of the fucking Caribbean, nor does it feature any dancing zombies. All will be revealed. Soon.

@THEBRYANHITCH It's a real shame the Dredd movie didn't hit bigger, it's very good. Made me think too that a weekly police procedural with Dredd would work

@JRichardKelly JP4: Ian Malcolm gets a distress signal from a presumed dead Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) who has venom induced psychic control of dinos.

@mrmarkmillar WTF? After Earth has a last boy on Earth trying to survive in climate of super-evolved animals? Members of the jury, I present KAMANDI!

@BradBirdA113 I'm a few days late, but-- CONGRATULATIONS to @rianjohnson for scoring a WGA original screenplay nomination for LOOPER. You go, guy.

@ChrisDoohan Loved this scene.

@DamonLindelof I just realized that Nick Brody is Dennis Quaid from Enemy Mine, right down to the little prayer book. #LouGossettIsAbuNazir #ObscureTweets
