To the Stars by George Takei
Book DescriptionBest known as Mr. Sulu, helmsman of the "Starship Enterprise" TM and Captain of the "Starship Excelsior, " George Takei is beloved by millions as part of the command team that has taken audiences to new vistas of adventure in "Star Trek" ®--the unprecedented television and feature film phenomenon. From the program's birth in the changing world of the 1960s and death at the hands of the network, to its rebirth in the hearts and minds of loyal fans, the "Star Trek" story has blazed its own path into our recent cultural history, leading to a series of blockbuster feature films and three new versions of "Star Trek" for television. The "Star Trek" story is one of boundless hope and crushing disappointment, wrenching rivalries and incredible achievements. It is also the story of how, after nearly thirty years, the cast of characters from a unique but poorly rated television show have come to be known to millions of Americans and people around the world as family. For George Takei, the "Star Trek" adventure is intertwined with his personal odyssey through adversity in which four-year-old George and his family were forced by the United States government into internment camps during World War II. "Star Trek" means much more to George Takei than an extraordinary career that has spanned thirty years. For an American whose ideals faced such a severe test, "Star Trek" represents a shining embodiment of the American Dream--the promise of an optimistic future in which people from all over the world contribute to a common destiny.
