On Saturday, William Shatner took to Twitter to mourn the death of longtime Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy, ruefully confessing he couldn't "make it back in time" to attend the late actor's funeral on Sunday.

"I am currently in FL as I agreed to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight," wrote Shatner. "I feel really awful."

Instead, Shatner suggested, fans could join him online tomorrow to remember Nimoy.

Naturally, Shatner missing Nimoy's funeral over a seemingly minor scheduling conflict struck more than a few commenters as rather odd. Isn't there some Trek-loving billionaire out there who can charter Bill a flight?
