‘Star Trek’ icons J.J. Abrams and George Takei are urging fans to vote for Hillary Clinton.
The list includes people from every Star Trek series and the new movie franchise, ranging from George Takei and Zoe Saldana to Star Trek: Discovery showrunner Bryan Fuller. Their letter positions Trump as an opposing force against Star Trek‘s optimistic vision for the future.
