William Shatner is mentally preparing for his upcoming trip to space with Blue Origin.
The "Star Trek" actor, 90, is traveling aboard Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin New Shepard NS-18 on Oct. 12 and told audience members during a New York Comic Con panel on Thursday that he's terrified.
"I'm terrified," he confirmed. "I'm Captain Kirk, and I'm terrified going to space. You know, I'm not really terrified. Yes, I am. It comes and goes like a summer cold."
"You have three minutes to look into the abscess of space and the beauty of this oasis of Earth, and I was planning on pressing my nose against the window, you know? And my only hope was I wouldn't see somebody else looking back," Shatner joked.
