He always looked around 5'10.75, very close to 5'11 in my opinion.

Exactly what I guessed in the Star Trek 1979 film, looks about 1.5 taller than Shatner.

A good old western actor, he basically went nowhere without cowboy boots on. He could easily be 5'11" in those.

Saw him at ST 2 WOK premiere in the Houston. He was about the same height as my brother who is about 5' 11"

Wow, I can't believe no one has commented on the great Dr Mcoy's page!!!

Seriously though, I am watching a marathon of Star Trek movies on HBO, and decided to check out your opinion on his height.

5ft10.5in is possible in his younger days, and certainly not under 5'10 flat, though it can be hard to tell, seeing as how Shatner almost certainly wore lifts at times. He had also lost height by the movies.

Anyway, long live Star Trek, and may all us Trekkies live long and prosper!!!

Frank2: Are you positive Shatner is only 5'8"? In his prime??

He definitely was taller than that in STrek and previously in his westerns: I loved this man! I saw him at about 5'11 for long but looks barely shorter than Leonard Nimoy and two good inches more than W. Shatner.

They all wore boots in Star Trek, Shatner also wore some lifts in them maybe.

During the Star Trek TV series, DeForest was 5'10". Nimoy was 6' and Shatner was 5'8". Met them all over the years. Kelley was a very nice man.
