A bevy of "Star Trek" cast and crew members from multiple generations signed an open letter Thursday by the Facebook group "Trekkies Against Trump," blasting GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and arguing against a third-party "protest vote" in the November election.

"Never has there been a presidential candidate who stands in such complete opposition to the ideals of the Star Trek universe as Donald Trump," reads the letter from fans of the popular television and movie franchise.

George Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu in the original television series, signed on, along with family members of some of "Star Trek's" now deceased icons, including series creator Gene Roddenberry and Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock.

Names of those featured in the more recent film reboot also appear, including director and producer J.J. Abrams (a prolific Clinton backer) and actors Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto.

The message makes a particularly pointed plea to Trekkies not to consider voting for a third-party candidate for president.

"We have heard people say they will vote Green or Libertarian or not at all because the two major candidates are equally flawed. That is both illogical and inaccurate," the letter reads.

The letter ends with a plea to register to vote -- with a space-themed flourish: "Vote for a future of enlightenment and inclusion, a future that will someday lead us to the stars."

Hillary supporters are in panic mode.

They know they are facing landslide losses.

They do know that they are all just actors who portray worthwhile people, right?

I don't think so. It does speak to whom they feel they will appeal to though. I won't say anymore.
