Star Date 03072011- The wake-up call by no less than Captain Kirk (William Shatner) himself, noting the last of a long and illustrious career for Discovery.  Marking it's 39th and final mission and 30 years of successful flights, the shuttle Discovery will be decommissioned in the later part of 2011.
