Canadian astronaut warns William Shatner of life on Earth

William Shatner — aka Captain James Tiberius Kirk (also the porky lawyer from Boston Legal, depending on your age) — has been communicating with a Canadian astronaut stationed on the International Space Station.

Chris Hadfield, currently on board the ISS as a flight engineer and due to take over as mission commander after the current crew leaves in March, got a tweet from Shatner asking @Cmdr_Hadfield Are you tweeting from space? MBB. (MBB stands for My best, Bill, in case you’re wondering.)

Hadfield’s reply shows a more than casual interest in the tales of a younger Kirk and his fictional exploits across the universe:

@williamshatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we’re detecting signs of life on the surface.
