‘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.
Star Trek has always offered a positive vision of the future, a vision of hope and optimism, and most importantly, a vision of inclusion, where people of all races are accorded equal respect and dignity, where individual beliefs and lifestyles are respected so long as they pose no threat to others. We cannot turn our backs on what is happening in the upcoming election. Never has there been a presidential candidate who stands in such complete opposition to the ideals of the Star Trek universe as Donald Trump.
