NASA used theme to the Star Trek series to wake up the crew of the space shuttle Disovery including a special voice over by original Captain Kirk William Shatner  based on the iconic “Space the final frontier..” heard spoken by Shatner before the opening credits of Star Trek

Wake up calls have been a part of NASA history since the later Apollo missions.

Bbeing Discovery’s last space flight NASA opened up a number of the wake up calls to the public as well as the the shuttle crew, other tracks used for wake up calls included music by U2 and Cold Play.

Space, the final frontier. These have been the voyages of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Her 30 year mission: To seek out new science. To build new outposts. To bring nations together on the final frontier. To boldly go, and do, what no spacecraft has done before.
