Two Captain Kirks and a Record editor

Record Metro Editor Barbara Zumwalt is the neice of famous U.S. Navy Admiral Elmo “Bud” Zumwalt Jr. (1920-2000). Last week she travelled to Bath, Maine, for the christening of the U.S.S. Zumwalt, the first in a new class of ultra-modern destroyers.

In an amusing sidelight to the ceremony, actor William Shatner, famous for playing Capt. James T. Kirk on “Star Trek,” sent Zumwalt’s captain, Capt. James A. Kirk, an autographed photo and best wishes.

Barbara took a picture of Shatner’s gift and ended up in this Navy Times story.
