Emmy winner William Shatner has been chosen to kick off the 2007 ACORD LOMA Insurance Systems Forum.

Backchat will reserve judgment on whether this was the best choice until after the event.

But we can't help but wonder if Shatner will impersonate Captain Kirk of Star Trek (To boldly go where no standards have gone before…), or use his Boston Legal persona ("I'm Denny Crane everybody").
