Despite his experience with the Trekkies, Collins decided to use another “Star Trek” theme for the crew of STS-134, using the 2009 movie as his inspiration. The starburst on the left represents the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, which was mounted on the International Space Station by the crew of STS-134.
From left to right: Drew Feustel (“Scotty”), Mike Fincke (“Bones”), Mark Kelly (“Captain Kirk”), Greg Johnson (“Spock”), European astronaut Robert Vittori (“Sulu”), and Greg Chamitoff (“Chekov”).
