I don't know if anyone cares, but I found a link on CNN today about William Shatner making a call to the space shuttle Discovery crew. I thought I would share the link here, just in case anyone wanted to see it.
The only thing that would have been cooler, is if it had been a call to the Space Shuttle Enterprise, vice Discovery, but unfortunately she's resting out at the Dulles airport annex of the Air and Space Museum with not one real spaceflight. Oh well. Pretty cool anyways for him to record that wake up call.
Thought just occured to me. Would it be a predestination paradox that the show Star Trek, caused everyone to hold the name Enterprise so dear that they've named a Space Shuttle and the first Sapce Airliner (for lack of a better term) eventually leading to a Starship wayout into the future? Just so someone could time travel to make a show about the Starship Enterprise. Or am I just off my gourd?
