Trek Against Trump

Wow. Apparently, a bunch of people who've been affiliated with Star Trek in some way have come together to endorse a group called "Trek Against Trump." There are some pretty recognizable names on the list of members, and all the various incarnations of Trek are represented both in front of and behind the camera. (Special shout out to my girl Gates McFadden! Holla!) Here's the beginning of their statement:

Star Trek has always offered a positive vision of the future, a vision of hope and optimism, and most importantly, a vision of inclusion, where people of all races are accorded equal respect and dignity, where individual beliefs and lifestyles are respected so long as they pose no threat to others. We cannot turn our backs on what is happening in the upcoming election. Never has there been a presidential candidate who stands in such complete opposition to the ideals of the Star Trek universe as Donald Trump. His election would take this country backward, perhaps disastrously. We need to elect a president who will move this country forward into the kind of future we all dream of: where personal differences are understood and accepted, where science overrules superstition, where people work together instead of against each other.

You can read more here, including a full list of members. Engage!
