Wake Up To Kirk Tomorrow Morning, Just Like The Astronauts of The Discovery

And All Was Right With the World

This was the wakeup call played for the astronauts aboard the International Space Shuttle last week, the very last wakeup call of the Discovery’s tenure. NASA held a contest to decide what would be used as some of the final wakeup music for Discovery’s crew. The theme of original series Star Trek came in second place, William Shatner recorded the dialogue, and obviously somebody decided that it would be the most appropriate thing to use on that last morning.

(via lots of places.)

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
