Thanks to William Shatner, You Can Live Your Dream of Flying with Captain Kirk

For many Star Trek fans, the ultimate dream is to go where no man has ever gone before. While we’re still a ways off from voyaging through the Final Frontier with Starfleet, some lucky Trekkies will get to have the experience of a lifetime and fly with Captain Kirk himself.

Fans will have the chance to fly in zero gravity with William Shatner, beloved star of the iconic television series, in Las Vegas thanks to a partnership between Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) and Roddenberry Adventures.

If you’re excited about the prospect of flying with the man who played Captain Kirk, know that Shatner is just as thrilled to be taking this zero gravity journey with fans. “Going weightless will turn a dream into reality,” he said. “I’ve always wondered what it would be like to actually explore the Final Frontier and now I have the opportunity to experience zero gravity firsthand. It will be an incredible adventure.”

This is a Star Trek experience like no other, and for those who can afford the $7,250 plus tax price tag, it sounds like it will be a day you’ll never forget. The special pricing for this exclusive adventure with William Shatner will include 15 parabolic maneuvers (floating, flips, all that fun stuff) creating 20-30 seconds of weightlessness each, ZERO-G and Roddenberry Adventures merchandise, pre- and post-flight catering, professional photos and video of your weightless experience, and a certificate of weightless completion. Once you’re back on the ground, participants will also get to mingle with Shatner during a meet and greet session.
