Takei–ChoBoth George Takei (left) and John Cho ’96 (right) played Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the USS Enterprise, on Star Trek about 40 years apart. Takei founded the role on the original 1960s TV series, starring in three seasons and reprising the character in six movies and several video games. Cho played the highly sought-after role of Mr. Sulu in the 2009 and 2013 Star Trek films. As part of the Promise for Education campaign to raise money for University of California scholarships, Cho said he would “take a randomly selected fan that contributes at least $25 to a special lunch with George Takei and yours truly.” Find Takei on Facebook and Twitter @GeorgeTakei.  Follow Cho on Twitter  @JohnTheCho.
