William Shatner considers his Emmy wins the second-most exciting night of his life, as he related on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday.
NBC News posted a video of Kimmel introducing Shatner in a segment called Emmy Memories.
Shatner, who won an Emmy in 2004 for The Practice and another the following year for Boston Legal, said that, as great as those moments were, they are second to what he and his Star Trek co-stars Leonard Nimoy and George Takei did during the making of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).
According to Shatner, the trio dropped bath salts during the production of that film.
“Next morning, I woke up on an overpass in Tokyo,” the actor said. “There was blood everywhere. We never spoke of it again.
“But winning the Emmy was exciting, too!”
Kimmel is set to host this year’s Emmy Awards, which air Sunday.
Shatner, 81, is currently on a 20-city tour of his show Shatner’s World: We Just Live in it, according to Reuters.
