A slew of “Star Trek” alumni is aiming to beam Hillary Clinton into the White House.

Some of the biggest names from the sci-fi TV and movie franchise — including J.J. Abrams, LeVar Burton, Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, George Takei and Zoe Saldana — have signed on to the mission statement of a new Facebook group, “Trek Against Trump.”

{mosads}“Star Trek has always offered a positive vision of the future, a vision of hope and optimism, and most importantly, a vision of inclusion, where people of all races are accorded equal respect and dignity, where individual beliefs and lifestyles are respected so long as they pose no threat to others,” the statement posted this week says.

The group goes on to slam the GOP presidential nominee, writing, “We cannot turn our backs on what is happening in the upcoming 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.”

Dubbing Trump an “amateur with a contemptuous ignorance of national laws and international realities,” the group describes Clinton as someone who has “devoted her life to public service, and has deep and valuable experience with the proven ability to work with Congress.”

Wil Wheaton, who played Wesley Crusher on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” wrote on Twitter:

“Vote for a future of enlightenment and inclusion, a future that will someday lead us to the stars, ” the group, which notes on its page that it’s not affiliated with the “Star Trek” franchise, encourages supporters on its page.
