We are delighted to welcome George Takei, a true icon from the pioneering days of the Star Trek universe, back to Germany at FedCon 31. In his role as Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu in Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek: The Original Series, he laid the foundation for an incredible SF success story from 1966 to 1969.
The Los Angeles-born actor also breathed life into Hikaru Sulu in the first six Star Trek movies and starred in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager. Most recently, he lent his voice to the popular character in the 2022 animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks (season 3, episode 8). He also dubbed this character in 22 episodes in the first animated series on the subject (Star Trek: The Animated Series, 1973 – 1974).
A look at George Takei’s impressive filmography is always worthwhile, because there are countless well-known series and film titles. For all fans of the fantastic, his role in the mystery/science fiction series Heroes (2007 – 2010) deserves special mention. There is also an excursion into a galaxy far, far away in 2009 (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, voice of Lok Durd).
In addition to his stints as an actor and voice actor, George Takei is politically active, campaigns for gay rights and has also written several books. In short, an extremely versatile and committed FedCon 31 star guest who you can experience live in Bonn. Don’t miss this under any circumstances.
