Bachelor Nick Viall just can't stay away from drama. Nick is currently competing on "Dancing With the Stars," and embroiled in a bizarre feud with "Star Trek" icon William Shatner, who is obsessed with him. Seriously.

Let a few things wash over you: The real life Captain Kirk is a resident of Bachelor Nation. He is also a regular viewer and tweeter of DWTS. Season 24 just started, and Shatner has launched a Twitter campaign to get former Bachelor Nick Viall booted first. Viall finally reacted to Shatner's "anyone but Nick" mission in the best way possible, considering the circumstances.

Nick's backers have accused Shatner of "bullying," but Shatner defended his campaign, arguing against seeing more of Nick Viall on TV after two seasons of "The Bachelorette," then "Bachelor in Paradise," and the recent season of "The Bachelor."

Both Nick and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd chose to reply via emojis, and Shatner responded to Peta:

Listen, we can't say we were thrilled to hear that Nick would be on still another ABC reality show, but all Shatner is doing is making Viall the victim, giving him underdog status and support from fans who feel bad that he's being attacked. This mission could backfire, Cap'n!

DWTS airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
