Space Shuttles last flight. Captain kirk on board.

Well his voice was...

"'The day began with wake-up music of the Star Trek theme with a special new voice-over recorded by actor William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk, especially for the Discovery.

'Space, the final frontier,' he said in place of the original words from the television show.
'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.'"
This is a fitting end to an 80's icon, the space shuttle.
It will be retired to the Smithsonian in Washington DC.
I will be ready for viewing next year. I'm going.
