Tonight’s episode of Transformers Prime features Star Trek actor George Takei voicing one of the Transformers. And you can watch a clip of Takei’s work from the show below.
In tonight’s episode, "Rebellion," "a new member leads Team Prime as it wages war against the Decepticon citadel. Optimus Prime may never be the same."
Here is a clip of George Takei voicing the role of Alpha Trion in the episode premiering Friday, April 12 at 7:30/6:30c.
This is actually not Takei’s first time voicing in the Transformers universe. He voiced the Autobot Yoketron in the Transformers Animated series in 2009. Transofrmers Prime was developed for the Hub by Star Trek writer/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci – who wrote two of the Transformers live-action movies. Takei has now matched his Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy in voicing two different Transformers characters.
This is the second role for Takei in a Kurtzman/Orci produced show in the last year. In December Takei appeared in an episode of Hawaii Five-O.
