Now, the 90-year-old "Star Trek" actor has made a light jab at someone who didn't quite do the same.
Blue Origin's first human spaceflight took place in July, launching into space CEO Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, 82-year-old aviator Wally Funk, and Dutch teenager Oliver Daemen.
During their brief stint in zero gravity during the flight, Bezos threw Skittles with Daemen, with each trying to throw the candies into the other's mouth.
"You're floating," he said. "I don't want to turn somersaults, I don't want to throw Skittles - I want to look out the window."
In a video showing the four passengers of Wednesday's flight during their 11-minute trip, Shatner can be seen staring down at Earth, saying, "No description can equal this."
"What you have given me is the most profound experience," Shatner told Bezos. "I am so filled with emotion about what just happened. It's extraordinary."
