George Takei played a Japanese helmsman before becoming Ensign Sulu. He had many one-off TV appearances and voice-overs. He has 225 IMBD credits. He is an avid supporter of LGBT rights and other causes. His tweets and criticism of Trump are well-known.
Walter Koenig, 85, is the third remaining major actor in the cast. The role of Pavel Andreievich Chekov, the navigator, was played by a Russian immigrant family's American-born son. Koenig is still working as an actor, similar to Takei, at which wedding to Brad Altman he served as best man. In 2020, he made an appearance in Unbelievable!!!!, a Star Trek parody.
