Move over Sulu, two more Trek alumni join ‘Heroes’

heroesIf you were pleasantly surprised that NBC’s Heroes had former Star Trek star George Takei as a member of its cast, get ready for more of where that came from.

Producers of the show have added two more former Trek actors to the roster for the upcoming season – which debuts Monday, September 23 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

The biggest of the two coups is Nichelle Nichols (Uhura from the original 1960s Trek), who will be joining the series for at least five or six episodes.

Similarly, Dominic Keating (Malcom on Enterprise) will be playing the role of an Irish mob boss in the upcoming season.

Of course, the Trek crossover includes Zachary Quinto, who plays the evil Sylar in Heroes. He was cast last month as the new Spock for the re-imagined Star Trek, which is set to hit theatres on Christmas Day 2008.
