William Shatner (born March 22, 1931) is a Canadian actor, author, producer, director, and singer. In his seven decades of television, Shatner became a cultural icon for his portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise in the "Star Trek" franchise. He has written a series of books chronicling his experiences playing Captain Kirk and being a part of "Star Trek", and has co-written several novels set in the "Star Trek" universe. He has also written a series of science fiction novels called "TekWar" that were adapted for television.

"TekWar" is set in the 22nd century and follows Jake Cardigan, a former police officer who is framed for dealing 'tek', an illegal, mind-altering, digital drug. Sentenced to fifteen years' cryo-imprisonment, he is released after serving only four. Jake goes to work for Walt Bascom, the man behind his early release, and dedicates himself to hunting the real 'tek' lords.
