Old habits die hard, especially for the classic captain of the USS Enterprise.

William Shatner, a.k.a. Capt. James T. Kirk from "Star Trek," has begun tweeting at space organizations to check on operations.

So far, he has not been left hanging.

Shatner tweeted at NASA on Saturday and got a reply, so he decided to check in with the European Space Agency on Tuesday afternoon.

As with NASA, the agency made the captain aware of its space affairs.
