Trekkies, Trekkers and people who have a passionate opinion on the best “Star Trek” captain, we have some exciting cruise news just for you.

Incidentally, the answer to the above is Captain Jean-Luc Picard and all other opinions are incorrect.

Don’t worry, because even those of you who adore Captain Jonathan Archer will be excited to hear that there is a “Star Trek” cruise ready to launch in January 2017.

Set your phasers to fun and enjoy this video that explains a bit more on how you can boldly go where other tourists have gone before:

Potential guests, you have the con.

The video promises a cavalcade of stars from the “Star Trek” universe, including host William Shatner who will come in handy if you run into any opposition from Khan.

Find out more information at Star Trek: The Cruise’s official website, which states the adventure “will offer 6 days and 6 nights of unique experiences including dramatic performances, comedy shows and concerts by Star Trek actors; intimate speaking engagements with leading scientists, influencers and experts; themed parties, nightclubs, bars, casinos and private islands; interactive games, screenings, competitions and so much more.”

The Norwegian Pearl will play the part of the Starship Enterprise, which will welcome stars of the franchise such as Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, Denise Crosby and John de Lancie from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Robert Picardo from “Star Trek: Voyager” and James Darren from “Deep Space Nine.”

The cruise leaves Miami on January 9, 2017 and returns on January 15, visiting Cozumel, Mexico, as well as Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas.

You should be in good hands with a first officer, ship counselor and omnipotent being known as Q enlivening the festivities.

Here’s a tweet from the cruise’s Twitter feed:

Prices ranges from $975 for an interior stateroom to $7,500 per person for a haven garden villa, which sleeps up to eight people — monthly payment plans are available.

Now this is officially sanctioned by CBS Consumer Products, so we assume the ship will be festooned with nods to “Star Trek” and its various iterations.

The only thing left to do is sit reclined in your respective captain’s chair, stare into the great unknown and declare “Engage.”
