In the late 70s before
"Star Trek The Motion Picture"® was made,
Shatner's recording career was taking off. The Swedish pop group
ABBA was winding down, so as a novelty, Shatner was asked
to join the group, thus adding another "B" in
the name. An album began recording in the fall of 1978 and several
tours were planned. The whole idea was abandoned in early 1979,
and the album was never completed. Bootleg copies of several songs
have been available for years, with,"Disco Starship Captain"
being the most popular.
