(Newser) – An astronaut on the International Space Station got to talk to none other than Captain James T. Kirk today, Space.com reports. Chris Hadfield first heard from William Shatner on Twitter last month, when the actor asked the Canadian astronaut, "Are you tweeting from space?" The conversation grew to include other Star Trek veterans including George Takei, Leonard Nimoy, and Wil Wheaton, and continued today in a call from Shatner to Hadfield. "I'm so moved to be able to speak to you for this brief moment," said Shatner, who had quite a few questions for the real-life spaceman. (Read more William Shatner stories.)
