Weightless flight provider Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) joined Roddenberry Adventures to offer George a special opportunity to boldly go where no other Star Trek crew member had gone before: floating in zero gravity.

Fans got to meet and take pictures with the original Hikaru Sulu before taking to the sky. During each period of weightlessness Takei floated effortlessly through the plane, performing flips with ease and proudly flashing the Vulcan salute with fellow passengers. Takei said the experience is something he’d love to do again and is even planning on using one of the flight photos in his Christmas card.

“The flight was an out-of-this-world adventure for everyone involved,” said Terese Brewster, President and COO of ZERO-G. “Flyers got to interact with George, chat about Star Trek and have a sci-fi adventure of their own. We are so happy we could celebrate the anniversary with George and his fans.”

ZERO-G is the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless airline flights for the public. It will continue its schedule of weightless flights across the country, with upcoming stops in Los Angeles and San Francisco before returning again to Las Vegas. The entire schedule can be found on their website here.
