Astronauts on space shuttle get wake-up call from Captain Kirk

Crew's on-board space shuttle missions frequently get pieces of songs played for them as a “wake-up call,” and occasionally they get a special treat. Lately, the team of the Space Shuttle Discovery got just such a call from Captain Kirk. William Shatner recorded a custom monologue to go with the theme from the original series of “Star Trek,” which NASA played for the astronauts. However, the mission will come to a bittersweet end as this is the last mission for the shuttle Discovery.
