A post by Star Trek‘s George Takei recently attracted so many responses that the site ISP took down the page temporarily.
Takei posted a link on his Facebook page to the Allegiance Musical website, which was selling gay-pride “Takei T-shirts.”

Star Trek‘s George Takei appeared in Washington, D.C. yesterday in support of The Social Security Equality Act bill (H.R. 4609), introduced by California Representative Linda Sánchez.
H.R. 4609 would eliminate the Social Security Administration policy which denies certain benefits to same-sex couples.
In honor of his seventy-fifth birthday, a Toronto bakery made a baker’s dozen cookies for George Takei.
Takei was in Toronto to attend the annual Sakura Ball, where he received the Sakura Award.
Star Trek‘s George Takei celebrates his seventy-fifth birthday today, and the actor reflected upon his life while looking ahead to the future.
The actor is spending his birthday trying to do something worthwhile. “I’m literally up in the air flying from Los Angeles to Toronto to speak at a fundraiser for the Japanese-Canadian Cultural Centre,” said Takei. “So I am celebrating my seventy-fifth birthday in the way that I’ve spent most of my life: raising funds for good causes.”
When George Takei came out in 2005, he received many emails; most were positive but some were not.
Although out to family, friends and select others, Takei came out publicly in 2005 in response to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s veto of a gay marriage bill.
Star Trek‘s George Takei is the latest celebrity to get the ax on Donald Trump‘s The Celebrity Apprentice.
Takei’s assigned job on the show was project manager, and his task was to lead a group of men in decorating a window at Lord & Taylor for Ivanka Trump‘s new fashion line. Another team, consisting of women, also decorated a window at Lord & Taylor’s and their window was deemed the winner.
He may be seventy-four years old, but George Takei is not being left behind when it comes to modern technology.
Takei even has his own Facebook page, with over a million “likes”, which is a source of amazement to the actor.
Star Trek‘s George Takei will be performing with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in Ode to Joy later this month.
Ode to Joy will be performed on February 25 and 26 at the Robinson Center Music Hall in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Star Trek‘s George Takei will be one of the eighteen people on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice.
In Celebrity Apprentice, the celebrity contestants vie to raise money and awareness for their charity of choice, with the last person standing “hired” as the “Celebrity Apprentice” who will then have the honor of delivering a check for $250,000 to his or her favorite charity.
According to George Takei, Star Trek and Star Wars fans shouldn’t be fighting each other, but instead should be uniting against another fandom.
After the recent online exchange between Star Trek‘s William Shatner and Star Wars‘ Carrie Fisher, Takei decided to jump in with his own opinion on the fandom war, with a three minute video, George Takei is the Broker of Star Peace.
Over the years, William Shatner and George Takei have taken shots at one another and Shatner’s new book, due out next month, will only continue their feud.
In his new book, Shatner Rules: Your Guide to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large, it’s Shatner’s turn to attack Takei.
Next week, Star Trek‘s George Takei takes on a new role, that of a holographic martial arts sensei, in Nickelodeon’s Supah Ninjas.
Supah Ninjas is “about a team of three young teenage ninjas, one of them being my grandson Mike (Ryan Potter),” said Takei. “I’m a ninja master and I want to see the art and the tradition of our clan carried on. My son doesn’t quite measure up, but I find that the genes have skipped a generation and the grandson has all the qualities necessary. So I recruit my grandson to be a ninja, and he has a good buddy named Owen Reynolds (Carlos Knight). He wants his buddy to be a ninja as well, and I agree.”
In his second promotional video for Allegiance, George Takei gets into the habit.
Takei tried to make it to Broadway via Spiderman, but now, he’s sure that his performance as Sister Mary Teriyaki in Sister Act will be the ticket to fame and fortune.
In the second episode of What’s Trending, a new Web series from CBS News, George Takei joined Chris Hardwick (Ministry of Laughs, Web Soup) and host Shira Lazar in a discussion on trending news stories for the week.
Topics of discussion included Lady Gaga, the rapture that didn’t happen, the tornado in Joplin, Missouri, planking, the zombie apocalypse and the “don’t say gay” Tennessee bill.
George Takei is speaking out against a Tennessee bill that would prohibit teachers from discussing homosexuality with young students.
SB49, sponsored by Senator Stacey Campbell, would forbid discussion of homosexuality in school to students below the ninth grade. The so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill has made it out of a Tennessee committee and will advance to the full Senate.
