The versatile Shatner has also brought his unique interpretive talents to the music world before, first in 1968 with the cult favorite 'The Transformed Man' and later in 2004 with 'Has Been'.

Now Shatner has returned to familiar territory - space - in this wildly inventive concept album featuring brand new recordings of Shatner's much celebrated speak-sing delivery on a host of classic rock favorites and other space-themed songs.
