HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The U.S. Space Camp in Huntsville is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and William Shatner, known as Capt. Kirk to legions of "Star Trek" fans, is planning to attend the party.
Shatner has agreed to be the emcee for the Space Camp Hall of Fame induction banquet in June, said Larry Capps, CEO of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.
The inaugural Hall of Fame event will honor 10 people who either attended Space Camp or have been major supporters of the Space Camp and Space Center, he said.
A committee is establishing criteria for selecting the first inductees. The exact date and location of the banquet will be announced later, he said.
