He’ll always affectionately be known as Sulu from the original “Star Trek” TV series, but George Takei is as well regarded today for his social/political activism and thoughtful, occasionally cheeky blog about everything from gay rights to Halloween costumes. The entertainer has even stepped into the online publishing frontier – his e-book “Oh Myyy! (There Goes the Internet)” was released last year and explains his meteoric (sorry) prominence in social media.

As if that weren’t enough, Takei completes this week a two-month run at San Diego’s Old Globe theater of “Allegiance: A New American Musical” about patriotism and the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. He’ll step off one stage onto another for Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s next pops concert. Takei hosts “Sci-Fi Spectacular” at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1-Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $25-$65, and for that you’ll get an evening of themes from vintage science fiction TV shows, epic space flicks and a true nostalgia trip. Takei will not be fencing, but his wit is certainly sharper than ever. Now that’s so Takei! Get tickets at
