William Shatner learned to use his Star Trek success, and turn it into an advertisement for future projects. Not many actors can do that. Harrison Ford used Star Wars in a similar manner, and landed even more better roles.
Some of Harrison's Better Characters:
Jack Ryan (Tom Clancey Movies)
President James Marshall (Airforce One)
Det. Capt. John Book (Witness)
Rick Deckard (Blade Runner)
When I think Shatner, I see "The Big Giant Head". Lol...
