Captain Kirk Calls the Space Station (VIDEO)

So what happened this morning? Oh not much… just watched CAPTAIN KIRK TALK WITH AN ASTRONAUT IN ORBIT, THAT’S ALL!

Yes, it’s true. Today, Feb. 7, William Shatner called in to the Space Station as it flew 240 miles over the southern Atlantic Ocean and chatted for a bit with Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who graciously answered Bill’s questions on being an astronaut and the challenges of space flight. A recording of the event is above — check it out! After all, busy starship captains and space station commanders don’t get together very often.

  1. Fantastic answers to Bill Shatner’s questions!


  2. What a fabulous interview. I’m learning, whilst listening to an actor and an astronaut. Wild.


  3. “Scott in the intercom…”
    Woaw !! Awesome series that “Star Trek”. I’ve all the episodes of Star Trek and and they made me dream even if now they are a little bit kitsch…
