LEBANON, Ind. (AP) _ ``Star Trek″ actor William Shatner and a one-time high school homecoming queen got married this week in this central Indiana city, The Indianapolis Star reported.

Shatner, 69, and Elizabeth J. Martin, 42, had been the talk of the town since the pair walked into the Boone County Courthouse on Monday to pick up their marriage license.

The couple tied the knot on Tuesday, according to Martin’s sister, Gayle Anderson.

``It’s absolutely true,″ Anderson told The Star for a report in its Thursday editions. ``That’s all we’re saying.″

This is the fourth marriage for Shatner, who starred as Captain James T. Kirk in the ``Star Trek″ television series and movies.

His third wife, model Nerine Kidd, died Aug. 9, 1999, when she drowned in the swimming pool at the couple’s Los Angeles home. Shatner’s first two marriages ended in divorce.
