Bill Shatner's connection to Mars research is strictly on the business level. Shat narrates the Mars Rising program featured on the Science
Channel — it's actually a pretty decent program, inasmuch as it addresses Mars exploration from a strictly scientific perspective, rather than from
the Richard Hoaxland and ATS fantasy angle.
My guess is that Shatner has seen a few new Mars Rising scripts containing provocative speculations regarding the possibility of Martian life,
and he's trying to drum up viewership for the show.
