NASA and Star Trek have been connected, both directly and indirectly, since Star Trek: The Original Series premiered in September 1966, and numerous astronauts have said that Star Trek inspired them to want to go into space. So it seems entirely appropriate for the USS Enterprise’s very first big screen adventure to screen during MoonFest, a wondrous journey through the cosmos that culminates with a final storyline twist linked to NASA’s own space programme. When an unidentified alien destroys three powerful Klingon cruisers, Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) returns to the newly transformed USS Enterprise to take command. Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley and the cast from the acclaimed original Star Trek television series mobilise at warp speed to stop the alien intruder from its relentless flight towards Earth.
