We have a lot of love for Star Trek: Discovery's Captain Gabriel Lorca. He's mysterious, stylish and brave enough to keep a Tribble on his desk – what's not to like?

Unfortunately, that's a sentiment that Captain James T Kirk himself doesn't appear to agree with, as William Shatner has unceremoniously blocked Jason Isaacs on Twitter.

"I've been blocked by @WilliamShatner. The unkindest cut of all," Jason announced to his followers yesterday (November 26).

"In what way have I broken the prime directive Captain? Was it the end of sentence minor-key uptick? The quizzical eyebrow (and blue eyeliner)? The just too-tight uniform?

"Forgive me my sins - it's an homage, I swear."

We reckon it's the blue eyeliner.

Of course, it's always possible that the apparent rift between the two Captains isn't Trek-related at all, as William Shatner has recently been vocal about his distaste for "SJWs".

And considering Jason is one of the most outspoken and inventive critics of President Trump on Twitter at the moment, we have an inkling that he might fall into that "SJW" category.

Another mystery yet to be solved is that Discovery fan theory involving Ash Tyler and Klingon Voq – although Jason has confirmed that some people are close to the truth.

"I mean, there's some really bonkers stuff out there! Some people have got bits right, no-one's got the whole thing right," he said.

"More power to them, people should continue to come up with these theories. Some people will feel really smug at the end of it, some people will feel really stupid at the end of it."

Star Trek: Discovery will return on CBS in the US and Netflix in the UK in January.
