This April 20th marks the 81st birthday of George Takei, the actor who poignantly portrayed the legendary Hikaru Sulu on The Original Series. Takei, who has expanded his résumé to include director, author, and activist, will forever be connected to his character of Commander Sulu, a well-respect expert on unexplored planets and an active hobbyist. We honor George Takei, and his memorable Sulu, with this collection of novels.
