NORFOLK, Va. — Capt. James T. Kirk will be on hand when the Enterprise is officially retired.

A publicist for William Shatner told http://www.dailypress.com/">The Daily Press that the actor will attend the aircraft carrier's inactivation ceremony on Saturday at Naval Station Norfolk. Shatner is scheduled to perform Friday in Newport News.

Shatner played Kirk, who led the starship Enterprise in the "Star Trek" television series and several movies.

The world's first-nuclear-powered aircraft carrier hosted another crew member of its fictional counterpart in 1983. George Takei was aboard the Enterprise when it ran aground on a sandbar while returning to Alameda, Calif., from a deployment. Takei played Lt. Cmdr. Sulu.

The Enterprise returned to Norfolk from its final deployment earlier this month. Saturday's inactivation will be its last public ceremony.
