William Shatner, the much beloved star of the iconic television series “Star Trek,” is set to take flight on August 4 with the Zero Gravity Corporation and Roddenberry Adventures.

The best part? You’re invited (for a price).

“Going weightless will turn a dream into reality,” Shatner said in a statement. “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.”

The flight is set to take place just as thousands of Star Trekfans descend upon Las Vegas for the show’s annual convention starting on August 2. The flight will take place on G-FORCE ONE, a specially modified Boeing 727, which will perform a series of parabolic arcs to create the feeling of floating through space.

“We want our travelers to have a journey they won't soon forget,” ZERO-G CEO Terese Brewster said. “Creating these weightless moments with the Roddenberry team helps us provide a remarkable memory this group will be able to share with one of the biggest names in entertainment."

To sweeten the deal, once back on land, participants will have the chance to mingle with Shatner during a meet and greet session.

Tickets for this voyage are $9,950 per seat and will include a ZERO-G flight suit, and photos and video of the entire experience.
