He’s ready to blind you with science! Thomas Dolby, the music-tech pioneer who got the world dancing with his biggest hit, “She Blinded Me with Science,” is the latest addition to the celebrity guest list for next year's Star Trek: The Cruise III.
Dolby has not only merged technology with music for over 35 years, but he revolutionized ringtone technology and served as musical director of the annual TED Conference for a decade. In 2016, Dolby published his biography, Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology. He is currently a professor at Johns Hopkins University, where he'll launch their first Music for New Media program this fall.
“Star Trek is the perfect fusion of technology, science and culture,” Dolby said in a statement. “What the franchise has done for science and curiosity is immeasurable, and I’m genuinely excited to be a part of this voyage that celebrates all things Star Trek.”
Entertainment Cruise Productions, the team behind Star Trek: The Cruise III, has announced that the Norwegian Jade will launch from Miami, Florida, on Friday, January 4, 2019, making stops at Great Stirrup Cay (Bahamas), Grand Cayman and Jamaica before returning to Miami on Thursday, January 10.
