SpaceX CEO Elon Musk may have managed to shoot rockets to the stars, but original “Star Trek” series lead William Shatner is not impressed by his antics. 

In a recent episode of The Daily Show’s latest DailyShowography, which Shatner narrates, Musk’s professional triumphs, failures, and Twitter behavior was critiqued by the 91-year-old actor. 

Shatner cracked that Musk rose to prominence by selling a “start-up you’ve never heard of to a company that doesn’t exist anymore,” prior to airing a 2014 clip of the Tesla CEO boasting that he was “confident that in less than a year, you’ll be able to go from highway on-ramp to highway exit without touching any control.”

The video goes on to show a series of self-driving Tesla mishaps from an almost accident, to the car’s running over obstacles on test drives. “But Musk can’t stop dreaming big, even when he should,” Shatner snarked. 

He mocked Musk for keeping both companies running with “billions of dollars in government subsidies,” and slammed the world’s richest man for “paying almost nothing in taxes for three years and then actually nothing in 2018.”

Shatner described Musk as “part Thomas Edison, part Iron Man, part annoying dude in the group chat, and he’s anything but your standard CEO,” adding that “[Musk is] a supervillain.”

The SpaceX CEO met with GOP party members at a fundraiser in Wyoming on Tuesday, as a guest of Republican House leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy. He reportedly complained about the taxes due from his $11 billion sale of Tesla stock, said the Republican Party should be “more compassionate to immigrants, and warned attendees about how dangerous socialism is to the country. 

Prior to his appearance, Musk tweeted, “To be clear, I support the left half of the Republican Party and the right half of the Democratic Party!”
