William Shatner provided a special message to the crew of space shuttle Discovery during the 3:23 a.m. EST wake up call on March 7. As the Star Trek theme song played underneath, Shatner replaced the original television introduction with a brand new one,
“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.”
Listen to the wake-up call here. It gives me chills.
