William Shatner is to travel across the US on a three-wheeled motorcycle.
The Star Trek star has announced plans for the cross-country mission to promote his custom motorcycle and raise awareness about the American Legion.
Shatner partnered with motorcycle builder American Wrench to create the Rivet motorcycle.
The Aurora, Illinois-based company said the silver studded bike is inspired by the B-17 bomber.
The eight-day journey will launch on June 23 outside Chicago and make stops in St Louis; Kansas City, Missouri; Oklahoma City; Amarillo, Texas; Albuquerque; Flagstaff, Arizona, and Las Vegas before arriving in Los Angeles on June 30.
Shatner, who played Captain James T Kirk, will be joined on the 2,400-mile (3,860-kilometre) ride by members of the American Legion and American Wrench crew.
The company is planning to sell limited quantities of Shatner's trike.
