Reminding fans that “the resolution of conflicts on Star Trek was never easy,” the group also slams the idea of a third-party vote, writing, “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 list of celebrities who have endorsed the group’s open letter include George Takei, J.J. Abrams, Zoe Saldena, Will Wheaton, and Zachary Quinto. They note that their campaign is neither affiliated nor endorsed or sponsored by CBS Studios, Paramount Pictures, or the “Star Trek” franchise itself. Several Star Trek cast and crew members have also posted their thoughts individually on Twitter.
