Star Trek’s J.J. Abrams, Chris Pine, and more sign letter against Donald Trump

While many content creators would like to keep a comfortable distance between themselves and politics, members of the cast and crew of the rebooted Star Trek franchise have endorsed a letter opposing Republican candidate Donald Trump.   The letter was created by a group named “Trek Against Trump” on Facebook and claims Donald Trump and his beliefs are the opposite of the vision set out in Star Trek and urges readers to vote for the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton .  Of the names the page claims to have received endorsement from are JJ Abrams, reboot actors Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana, and original cast member George Takei.
