Captain Kirk won’t be zipping between planets like on Star Trek, but he’ll reach suborbital space.
William Shatner speaks at a Star Trek convention.
It’s been decades since William Shatner first suited up to play the iconic role of Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise on Star Trek in the 1960s. The actor’s about to get a lot closer to his fictional counterpart’s accomplishments. Blue Origin announced Monday that Shatner is signed up to catch a rocket ride to suborbital space.
