Ashes of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry and his actress wife will blast toward the far reaches of the cosmos in keeping with the show’s famed opening line “Space, the final frontier.”
Majel Roddenberry died in December, two months before her 77th birthday, and will posthumously fulfill a “dream of journeying through space with her husband,” according to Celestis Inc, the US company behind the memorial flight.
Celestis sent some of Gene Roddenberry’s ashes into orbit around the earth in a premier Founders Flight rocket launch in 1997.
