William Shatner lends Blue Origin star power
On October 12, William Shatner -- Captain James T. Kirk to Trekkies -- is set to become the first member of the iconic show's cast to journey to the final frontier, as a guest aboard a Blue Origin suborbital rocket.

"I plan to be looking out the window with my nose pressed against the window, the only thing that I don't want to see is a little gremlin looking back at me," the 90-year-old Canadian, who will become the oldest person ever to go to space, joked in a video release.

PS: Amazon delivers my EVERY order around the corner and 10 houses away EVERY time.

I hope Amazon has better pilots than drivers.
