Trek Stars Lend Their Voices To Marvel's Super Hero Squad

Trek Stars Lend Their Voices To Marvel's Super Hero Squad

The Cartoon Network's "The Super Hero Squad Show" is about to get Trekked with TOS & TNG alums.  George Takei, Jonathan Frakes, & Michael Dorn are set to lend their voices to the show's season two, already in production.  Star Trek isn't the only scifi franchise to be represented in season two, also participating are Mark Hamill (Star Wars), John Barrowman (Torchwood), James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Adam West (Batman), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules & Andromeda) and Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries). 

"We explore what happens in the Marvel Universe outside of Earth — different dimensions, outer space and all these crazy places," says Cort Lane, Marvel's VP for animation. "So we took the opportunity to feature guest stars to explore those more sci-fi characters." 

Even more interesting is the fact that all of the actors accepted the offer to perform since according to Lane "Honestly, it's shocking because we're only paying scale."

This won't be the first time Takei, Frakes, & Dorn have spent time behine the mic.  Everyone remembers that Takei returned as Sulu in "Star Trek: The Animated Series", but some of you may be suprised that Frakes & Dorn spent some time voicing Characters in "Gargoyles" from '94 to '96.
