I know there are plenty of nerd Trekkies on this list (Hi William!), so let 
me ask you this:

If you've seen ST:TOS (and I know you have), you might notice that there's 
a BIG difference between the voice of William Shatner (Capt. Kirk) in the 
1960s and his current voice (or even in the ST movies.)

In the 60s, he sounds like he was on helium. Now, he's got that deep voice 

So what changed? Did he get surgery? Was sound technology bad in the 60s? 
Did he just take vocal lessons?



PS: If you use Kazaa, search for a video file with the words "Triumph Star 
Wars" - ROFL funny how Triumph the insult comic dog makes fun of star wars 

(to a Vader-suited guy) "So this button controls your voice box. Which 
button calls your parents to come pick you up?"
