Shatner Sends Greetings To Space


Star Trek’s William Shatner sent a message to the members of the Expedition 30 crew currently in residence on the International Space Station.

Shatner decided to send the crew the message after he found out that some of the space-related songs from his Seeking Major Tom album were being played aboard the ISS.

The video opens with the theme song from Star Trek, and then Shatner sends his message, from the comfort of his couch back on Earth.

“…If you listen to my record,” he told the crew, “the time will pass by quickly. Not quickly enough…”

Shatner went on to wish the crew good luck, and the clip ends with part of Shatner’s rendition of David Bowie‘s Space Oddity.

    Did you pro-actively cringe too? 🙂

    Sorry. That’s one of the lamest things I ever seen or heard.
    It is so amateur, it is almost embarrassing.
    Where are the Klingons when you need ’em?

    I don’t know what is worse. Shatner’s horrible rendition of music or learning the real reason why Star Trek Continues is being made in the first place.

    Obviously, both are!
