George Takei of 'Star Trek' is Inviting Fans to Join Him on a Zero-Gravity Flight
Seats are limited.
In honor of Star Trek’s 50th anniversary this summer, actor George Takei (a.k.a. Mr. Sulu) is inviting 20 guests to join him on a zero-gravity flight on G-Force One, a modified Boeing 727.
The launch will take place on August 4, nearly 50 years after the beloved series premiered, at The Official Star Trek 50th Anniversary Convention in Las Vegas.
The aircraft, according to a press release, "uses parabolic arcs to make achieving weightlessness easier than accelerating to warp one.” The result? “Anything is possible, such as perfecting the moonwalk, flying effortlessly through the air or flipping like an Olympic gymnast.”
The $6,500 tickets include a Zero-G flight suit, entrance to the Re-Gravitation Celebration, a certificate of weightless completion, and photos and video of the unique experience with Mr. Sulu himself.
