Booker, William Shatner exchange tweets

William Shatner is showing noted “Star Trek” fan Sen. Cory Booker the love on Twitter, chatting about everything from New Year’s resolutions to food preferences with the New Jersey Democrat.

After getting a tweet Sunday from Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in the classic sci-fi television series and films, Booker replied:

By the end of the Twitter back-and-forth, the two even appeared close to being foodie friends:

Booker, 45, has said his “Star Trek” fandom started at a young age, revealing in a 2012 Reddit chat, “My father and I used to watch the original ‘Star Trek’ and I was hooked. They are some of my greatest memories with my dad.”
