Captain Kirk Wakes Up Discovery


Every morning, the Space Shuttle crew receives a special wake up call from NASA. With this being the final voyage of Discovery, and with the shuttle due to land for the final time this week, William Shatner recorded a special wake up call for the crew this morning which was accompanied by the theme to the Original Series. Here’s the text of what he said, and you can hear in it the video that NASA released below:

“Space, the final frontier. These have been the voyages of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Her 30 year mission: To seek out new science. To build new outposts. To bring nations together on the final frontier. To boldly go, and do, what no spacecraft has done before.”
