BIG news for Star Trek fans Captain Kirk himself is actually heading to space IRL.

Actor William Shatner, who sat at the helm of the USS Enterprise through many TV seasons of the show, has been confirmed as one of the passengers on the next flight of Blue Origin, the space operation started by billionair­e Jeff Bezos.

If the plans flagged by gossip website TMZ come to fruition, 90-year-old Shatner will be the oldest human ever launched into space.

The 15-minute civilian flight is scheduled for next month, with TMZ saying it’s unclear at this stage whether he will wear his Captain Kirk uniform for the trip, but adding that it would be “AWESOME” if he did.
