STS-134 astronauts are, from left, Feustel, Fincke, Kelly, Johnson, Vittori and Chamitoff.

“Star Trek” is often cited as inspiration for NASA folk, so it’s not surprising to find the agency borrowing a little from the 2009 J.J. Abrams “Trek” film for the poster promoting STS-134, the final shuttle mission for Space Shuttle Endeavour and the penultimate mission for the space shuttle program.

The mission will mark the third ride for Jewish astronaut Greg Chamitoff, a Cal Tech alumnus who did two missions on the International Space Station. The crew includes commander Mark Kelly, pilot Gregory H. Johnson, mission specialists Michael Fincke, Chamitoff and Andrew Feustel, plus Roberto Vittori, astronaut from the European Space Agency.
