Fans of space, Star Trek and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, take note: You have a chance to fly through the air—in simulated zero gravity—alongside William Shatner this summer.

On August 4, ZERO-G and Roddenberry Adventures are running a very special zero-gravity flight out of Las Vegas, where the annual Star Trek convention will be in full force. Without leaving the atmosphere, passengers will experience space-like weightlessness in 30-second intervals as ZERO-G’s expert pilots fly a specially equipped 727 in parabolic arcs (see how that works here). Shatner, who of course played Captain Kirk in Star Trek, will be taking part!

“Going weightless will turn a dream into reality,” said Shatner. “I’ve always wondered what it would be like to actually explore the Final Frontier and now I have the opportunity to experience zero gravity firsthand. It will be an incredible adventure.”

Space is limited, but available—for $9,950 per person, plus 5% tax—here. ZERO-G’s zero-gravity flights without William Shatner are also available at other times and places throughout the year.

    That actually sounds pretty epic, but I don’t think I’d want to spend that money without leaving the atmosphere. I’m dying to get to space.
