Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is a big fan of “Star Trek” spoke with the New York Times Magazine about his favorite character from the show, Captain James Kirk.

Cruz described the character as “a passionate fighter for justice.”

And when asked whether he felt Kirk would have been a Republican or Democrat, Cruz told the New York Times Magazine that “it is quite likely that Kirk is a Republican.”

However, William Shatner, who played the role of Captain Kirk, took issue with that, calling Cruz’s hypothesis “silly.”
