This documentary explores the life of actor George Takei, who is best known for playing Sulu on the original Star Trek; however, Star Trek is just one aspect of his life. The film examines his growing up in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, as well as his work as a pioneering gay activist with his partner Brad. Takei’s post-Star Trek life is also featured with a rare interview with radio shock-jock Howard Stern, as he discusses Takei’s role as his announcer. Takei’s efforts to create a Broadway musical about his youth is also featured.
