Star Trek News II

Reasons why George Takei is a hero:
  1. This.
  2. This.
  3. This.
So to recap: when George Takei was a child, our government put him into a prison because of the way he looked. Then he became part of a TV series imagining a world where humanity had become equal, pushed to improve his local community by serving on its city council and designing its transportation infrastructure, and pushing quietly and with dignity for the equality of his own communities.
