The Force and The Federation meet on The Clone Wars
We may be witnessing some history here. I'm not talking about the Obama presidency, though that is very historic. Nor am I speaking about my recent advancement into my 40s, which isn't really historic bur rather another nail in my coffin. What I speak about here is a merging of two science fiction universes.
George Takei, the calm and cool Sulu from the original Star Trek series, will be providing a voice to a character on Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Takei will be providing words to the corpulent Lok Durd, a separatist Neimoidian general. Unlike the peaceful Sulu on Star Trek, Durd is somewhat overzealous (aka -- crazy like a loon) and has developed a weapon that will wipe out all living matter save for his battle droids.
Excited? I'm sure you are for this merging of sci fi universes. Well, you won't have to wait long to watch this episode as it premieres this Friday at 9 pm. So, get yourself ready to endlessly debate if Takei was better as Sulu on Star Trek or Durd in Star Wars.
