We know too many people who will be ordering these tickets.

Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy will join the Boston Pops as the host of two “Out of This World” space-themed programs on May 23 and 24 at Symphony Hall in Boston.

Guest conductor Sarah Hicks, Principal Pops Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, makes her Boston Pops debut with, 'Out of This World', a program featuring music inspired by outer space, hosted by pop culture icon, the original Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy.

Music will including Holst's The Planets (performed alongside a NASA film), the theme from Star Trek, the classical works (Also Sprach Zarathustra and Blue Danube Waltz) popularized in 2001:A Space Odyssey, and John Williams' intergalactic music from Star Wars, E.T., and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, as well as onstage commentary from Nimoy.

Tickets for the event range from $24-$94 and can be purchased on the Boston Symphony Orchestra's website.

Earlier this month, the Boston native revealed he was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In recent years, the 82-year-old Nimoy has become well known for his photography. His work has been exhibited at the R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams. His exhibit and book "Secret Selves" used Western Massachusetts residents, who depicted their hidden sides.
