George Takei’s Hope For Star Trek: Discovery, Appearing In Boston Next Month

George Takei On His Hope For Star Trek: Discovery, Appearing In Boston In February

Star Trek‘s original Hikaru Sulu, George Takei, recently spoke to about his hope for Star Trek: Discovery, which launches later this year.

For a wide variety of reasons, Gene Roddenberry’s original Star Trek series had—and continues to have—such a profound impact on so many of us. With the launch of Star Trek: Discovery right around the corner, we reached out to Takei to ask about the most important topics the new series could address.

Takei told us:

“[Star Trek: Discovery should] have a sci-fi metaphorical relevance to the consequential issues of our time today, whether global climate change or man’s inhumanity to man, or war and peace.”

The first episode of Star Trek: Discovery will premiere with a broadcast TV special on CBS. That episode and all subsequent episodes will be exclusively shown in the U.S. on the video streaming service CBS All Access.
