A few months ago we brought you an fun little story that concerned sending Star Trek action figures into space. Well, Trekkers, the dream has been realized. Logan Kugler launched a Kickstarter campaign to make his dream come true and wrote, “On May 5th 2012, I along with a team of engineering students from the University of Illinois sent the greatest starship captains to ever exist into space for the first time in reality. Discovery Channel was there to capture it.” Can you imagine? From a little bit of fan fun, to Kickstarter, to the Discovery Channel. Technically, the figures only made it to the stratosphere but that works for me! Six cameras caught the trip of Captains Kirk and Picard, Riker, Data, and custom-made figures of J.J. Abrams and Roberto Orci. Oh and, they travelled on top of the Enterprise-D. I love nerds.
