I was never a huge Star Trek fan but I am a huge George Takei fan. If you’re not familiar, George played Mr. Sulu on the original Star Trek TV show and in subsequent movies. He is narrating/hosting with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra this weekend at The Fox Theater. The DSO will play music from different Sci-Fi movies and TV shows such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, etc.

I am a fan of George’s work on the TV show Heroes and his work on a certain radio show, which used to be on regular radio but is now on satellite. We talked about his most recent venture in which he was voted off of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. He is a great guy with a very infectious laugh. My only regret is that I didn’t get to ask him why everybody insists on calling Donald Trump “Mr.” Trump.
