Trek beams to space

Space... the final frontier? Not the case for STAR TREK, both fictionally and literally.

Last week, JJ Abrams reboot was beamed into the cosmos, stopping at the International Space Station for orbiting NASA astronaut Michael Barratt to watch. Barratt went up to the station (not pictured above) in March and won't return to the planet's surface until June, potentially missing an opportunity to see TREK on the big screen along with millions of others earthbound humans, so Paramount kindly obliged the actual spaceman with the hit film.

"I remember watching the original 'Star Trek' series and, like many of my NASA coworkers, was inspired by the idea of people from all nations coming together to explore space," said Barratt. "'Star Trek' blended adventure, discovery, intelligence and story telling that assumes a positive future for humanity. The International Space Station is a real step in that direction, with many nations sharing in an adventure the world can be proud of."

NASA is fairly familiar with TREK tech -- in fact, they've given much thought to the plausibility of the franchise's science, from transporters and replicators to the Holodeck. You can see how far away we might be from genuine cloaking devices and warp drives RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: If Barratt had intercepted an illegal upload of the movie, he'd be... a space pirate.
