I was never aware that an actual Star Trek Captain Kirk action figure spent time in the real outer space but apparently it has and it’s going to be up for sale at auction. Most people don’t know this but William Shatner is worth over $100 million (he’s made over $600 million just for those Priceline commercials) so it’s strange to hear he’s auctioning anything off. Could it be that he’s a completely sane person and realizes that to be a true Star Trek fanatic and pay what will be more than likely thousands for things like these is a little psychotic? You don’t get to be worth $100 million by treasuring these kinds of artifacts. Nevertheless, here’s the info for all you Star Trek people:
Star Trek Captain Kirk Action Figure of Captain Kirk in an Environmental Suit was the perfect choice to be part of the cargo that was flown aboard Orion EFT-1! The Orion EFT-1 flew two orbits around the earth on December 5, 2014. On the second orbit it reached a high apogee and reentered the Earth’s atmosphere at 20,000 miles per hour. This action figure went along for the ride. The figure is still sealed in the shipping package it came back with and includes a folder with a letter of authentification from Lockheed Martin the flight certificate and a note from Mr. Shatner. In addition Mr. Shatner will personally autograph the figure for the winner if they choose. How many people can claim that they have a Star Trek action figure that flew on Orion?
