Over seven decades, actor and activist George Takei boldly journeyed from incarceration at  a WWII detention camp to the helm of the fictional USS Enterprise to the daily news feeds of millions of Facebook fans. This documentary follows Takei and his husband Brad on the star’s playful and profound trek for life, liberty and love. 

Best known for playing Sulu on the original “Star Trek” TV series and the six movies that followed, Takei is unlikely social media royalty. Unofficially dubbed “King of Facebook,” he counts over 5 million fans in his online empire — including Trekkies, Howard Stern listeners and members of the LGBTQ+ community — who devour his quirky mix of kitten jokes, heartfelt messages and sci-fi/fantasy memes.
