William Shatner is objecting to the use of his name and likeness to promote an upcoming condo development in Hamilton.
The “Star Trek” star, best known for playing Captain Kirk on the original series, set his phasers on the project — dubbed “Television City.”
On Twitter, Shatner complained that his name and a caricature of him were attached to floor plans for a million-dollar two-bedroom penthouse.
Shatner says he doesn’t recall giving permission to prominent Toronto developer Brad Lamb to use his name and image as promotional tools.
Mr. @BradJLamb it has come to my attention you are using my name & caricature likeness in your brochures to sell real estate. You are also using the name & likeness of @hwinkler4real & others I do not recall giving you permission to use my name or likeness https://t.co/EBG2lbGBYr pic.twitter.com/moN5n351py

Shatner tweeted a price list that showed various condo units named after several Hollywood stars including Lucille Ball, Bob Barker, Jay Leno, Mr. T, and Betty White.
