I saw that and thought it sounded quite reasonable, wanting to come back alive and all.

What an idiot, how can you possibly let such a chance go by?

I'd be scared shitless as well, but for such a view I'd risk a bit of vomit in space or a fiery death.

But he insists Virgin boss Branson also pays him.

What a money grubbing pansy... you get the offer of a FREE ride on the first commercial space flight and you want to get PAID to take it? Hell, even if it crashes and you die you're making history. Apparently Shatner doesn't understand the term 'once in a lifetime...'

Coming down in a fiery chunk of metal might be possibly the best way to die... other than maybe one or two other ways. :lookaround:

Personally, I would rather die in my sleep than with my own vomit on fire above my head.

One important fact you're missing, Shatner is too old for this and he knows it he does not want to take the risks on something that is still not tested and true so to speak. Asking for money is not "money grubbing" it is a smart thing to do in such a situation and even then it was a statement made in jest than anything in my eyes. In the end Shatner gets my respect for being smart, the chance of dieing is not worth any gains this would have brought.
