William Shatner, of 'Star Trek' and 'Boston Legal' fame, has reached a divorce settlement with ex-wife Elizabeth Martin that will see him walk away with all the horse semen the former couple previously shared, reports claim.

Shatner, 88, had married Martin in 2001 and filed for divorce this past December after 18 years of marriage, with the official separation date listed in documents as February 1, 2019. Court records show the pair finalized a divorce settlement earlier this week, with some peculiar items amongst the many that were divided amongst them, including the aforementioned horse semen.

Shatner and Martin reportedly first split up their four horses, with the former walking away with Renaissance Man's Medici and Powder River Shirley, and the latter getting Belle Reve's So Photogenic and Pebbles. She was granted visitation rights with "advance notice" for the other horses.

Along with those two horses, Shatner was awarded horse breeding equipment and "all horse semen," though it is currently unclear why they were kept in storage and what the actor plans to do with it. The former couple also split up their homes, with Shatner taking their Studio City house and Three Rivers Ranch in California.

Martin, a horse trainer, won their Versailles, Kentucky, home where they raised and trained American saddlebreds at a farm they owned, as well as their Malibu Cove home. She was also given the right to visit the ranch to "occasionally harvest fruit" and visit the resting place of her first husband and horses who have passed.

Shatner's 'Star Trek' royalties, however, were protected by a pre-nuptial agreement which they had in place, according to previously filed court documents. The pre-nuptial agreement will also mean that neither will receive any spousal support.

Martin was Shatner's fourth wife, and they did not have any children together. The actor was previously married to Gloria Rand for 13 years, Marcy Lafferty for 23 years, and Nerine Kidd for two years before her death.

He had two daughters, Lisabeth Shatner, 58, and Leslie Carol, 61, with Rand.
