George Takei as Captain Sulu of the USS Excelsior in a scene from “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.”
The Japanese American National Museum, 100 N. Central Ave. in Little Tokyo, will present an outdoor concert and movie night on Thursday July 27, at 7 p.m. in conjunction with the exhibition “New Frontiers: The Many Worlds of George Takei.”
The movie is “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” (1991), the last of the “Star Trek” films to feature the entire original cast from the 1966-69 television series, including George Takei as Hikaru Sulu, now captain of the USS Excelsior. Takei will give opening remarks (subject to availability).
Preceding the screening will be a set by Tim Russ Crew, a pop-rock band led by actor Tim Russ, who played Tuvok in “Star Trek: Voyager” and played other characters in episodes of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and the movie “Star Trek: Generations.” Russ and Takei worked together in the Voyager episode “Flashback.”
