The crew of Space Shuttle Discovery received what could be the best wake-up call ever. A personalized mission statement from the James T. Kirk, William Shatner. It’s a Star Trek‘s geek’s best dream, if they were already spending their nights on a space shuttle. The famous opening narration to the Star Trek series was altered to accommodate the Discovery’s current missions and was recorded by Shatner. Pair that up with the show’s adventurous theme song and you’ve got yourself one hell of an alarm.

Watch the video as the astronauts are delivered their message below. The Star Trek theme came in second place in the Top 40 contest to select what songs the NASA crews wake up to, first place went to ‘Blue Sky’ by Big Head Todd, yeah I don’t know who that is either.

The added Shatner monologue makes this wake-up call some trekkerawesomesauce.
