Shatner Wakes Up Discovery Crew

William Shatner briefly reprised his role of Enterprise Captain James T. Kirk to record a new introduction over the "Theme from Star Trek" for the crew of the space shuttle Discovery for mission STS-133. The crew was woken at 3:23AM EST Monday March 7th to Shatner saying:
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.
The 30 year old shuttle program will end later this year with I believe one more mission. Congrats to NASA, safe travels for the crew and a nod to Shatner for his part is giving homage to the space program. The audio above is thanks to TrekMovie.
