Legendary Star Trek actor William Shatner will be the oldest in space ever as part of a second crew traveling with Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin.
According to TMZ, the 90-year-old actor will take off for a 15-minute civil flight in a New Shepard capsule in October.
Blue Origin flights are recorded for a documentary that has been rejected by Discovery and is currently being negotiated elsewhere by Shatner’s team.
The Star Trek legend does not confirm or deny the report. Neither has a blue origin.
Actor William Shatner, 90, will be the oldest in space on a second private flight from Jeff Bezos’ company Blue Origin.
It is believed that the spot of the actor on board the spaceship is compensated. His fellow civilian astronauts have not yet been nominated.
Shatner is best known for his role in the popular 1960s Star Trek: The Original Series. He played Captain Kirk, commander of the USS Enterprise spacecraft, for three seasons.
The show has become a classic that has been around for years by Trekkie fans around the world.
Shatner has been criticized for his partnership with RT America on his latest television venture, I Don’t Understand, for funding the network’s Kremlin.

Bezos began its first Blue Origin private flight on July 20 when he boarded a spacecraft with his brother Mark Bezos, Dutch teenager Oliver Demen, and test pilot Wally Funk.
Funk became the oldest person in space to fly at the age of 82. This is the record Shatner is now trying to defeat.
Joes Daemen, the father of Daemen, who founded the private equity firm Somerset Capital Partners, bought Oliver’s seat at an auction for over $ 20 million.
At the age of 18, he became the youngest, first teenager, and the first person born for space travel in the 21st century.
