This whole Kansas State band brouhaha?
Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise thinks it’s much ado about nothing. The Kansas State band tried to make a Starship Enterprise that attacked a Jayhawk during Saturday’s game, but it ended up looking more like a, well, sex act.
On Tuesday, Kansas State announced it would pay a $5,000 fine to the Big 12 and the school would suspend Frank Tracz, K-State’s marching band director, for the Wildcats’ game against Kansas on Nov. 28.
The Big 12 also publicly reprimanded Kansas State’s band.
Never miss a local story.
Actor William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in “Star Trek,” read about the sanctions and this time, he couldn’t believe his eyes. (Note: the fine and suspension were issued by K-State, not the Big 12)
Shatner also was dismissive of Kansas State president Kirk Schulz’s apology for the band performance:
In a subsequent tweet that included a photo of the band formation, Shatner said he saw the Starship Enterprise.
