(CNN)– Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made an appearance Friday night on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, where she poked some fun at William Shatner.

Earlier this year, the actor made fun of Palin by reading some of her tweets during an appearance on The Tonight Show. Friday, Shatner continued by reading excerpts from her book "Going Rogue."

"I always remind people from outside of our state right that there is plenty of room for Alaska's animals. Right next to the mashed potatoes," Shatner read.

Then, Palin surprised the audience with her appearance and decided it was time for some payback.

"I think it's appropriate that I read a few choice excerpts from Mr. Shatner's autobiography," Palin declared. "I attended my first Star Trek convention in November 1975. The money they offered me to attend this convention was… do I dare? Yes, I do. Out of this world."

According to an aide traveling with Palin, she mingled with other guests including Tony Bennett and Zack Braff after her appearance, and wore the red jacket from her book cover for the last time.

    I wish someone would just beam her up! Or better yet ban her to Romulus after she's had a vulcan mind meld.

    Shatner was only reading her own words – her own actual words! This quitter can't face the truth ... or can't remember which lie she told when and where! Sista Sarah ... choose your words carefully because you may have to eat them in the future... and these days ... your words will last forever ... the Couric interviews in an endless loop or the video of your demons being cast out by a witch doctor.

    Sarah, if you want people to stop picking on you, stop giving the world ammo.

    I wish we would quit hearing about Ms. Palin. She is starting to remind me of Paris Hilton. We keep hearing about her even though she's really never done anything and we really don't know what makes her famous.
