Musical Monday - Happy Birthday George Takei by Five Year Mission

April 19th, 2012 was George Takei's seventy-fifth birthday and Five Year Mission decided that he needed a birthday tribute song. So they wrote him the most awesome Star Trek themed birthday song in history. It worked its way to Takei and he apparently loved the song. In addition to highlighting his obvious Star Trek connections, they even worked in references to his roles in The Green Berets and Heroes, covering the broad range of Takei's career.

Related to this: George Takei is an amazing guy and hilarious to boot. If there was justice in the world, he would be captain of the Enterprise in this world, and not just in the alternate universe. But life isn't fair and just having an Asian character on the bridge of a show on 1960s television was something of a triumph, even if it was the result of demoting him from being the head of the ship's astrophysics department. If you have not liked his Facebook fan page and followed his Twitter account, you should go do that right now.
