Good Morning, Discovery Astronauts. William Shatner Greeted Your Final Day

Yesterday, the Discovery astronauts were awakened by the sultry voice of an old school Star trek icon. No. it wasn’t George Takei. The captain of the 60s and lover of green women, William Shatner, greeted the crew with altered copy from his fame making TV series.

Space, the final frontier. These have been the voyages of the Space Shuttle Discovery,” said Shatner in a specially recorded introduction to the “Theme from Star Trek,” played as wake-up music at 2:23am (0723 GMT).

“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,” said Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in the popular television and movie series

The space shuttle Discovery is set for retirement after this voyage. It makes the Space Bastard in us bittersweet.

You can hear and download the raw Air-to-Ground transmissions from the entire STS-133 mission at the NASA audio collection on

T-Shirt Hell Shuts Down. Humorless Oafs to Blame.

It’s not that the snarky/satirical t-shirt market was cornered. It’s just that you figure T-Shirt Hell would at least survive a full decade before being pushed by the wayside.

This bit of Sunshine Megatron’s, owner and operator of T-Shirt Hell, outgoing letter explains a lot.

Looking Back on The Decider’s Decisions

As the 8 year reign draws to a close, let’s look back on the man, the myth, The Decider.

We started out with, The George Bush You Forgot:

Some time after that, everything went pear-shaped and this is all we heard.

“I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully.” – September 2000, explaining his energy policies at an event in Michigan.

“There’s an old saying in Tennessee – I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee – that says, fool me once, shame on – shame on you. Fool me – you can’t get fooled again.” – Sept. 17, 2002, in Nashville, Tenn.

“Make no mistake about it, I understand how tough it is, sir. I talk to families who die.” – Dec. 7, 2006, in a joint appearance with British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

And this is all we saw.
