Named after the Captain of the Enterprise, DOING THE SHATNER, is any ham handed overacting, over emotive delivery style that is similar to the famous actor (who has been known to do this time & time again. KHAAAAAANNNNN!). Similar to DOING THE WALKEN. Usually spoken by the lead in expository in a. staccato. type delivery.
