The acting veteran will make his Broadway debut in the musical, reprising his role as World War II veteran Sam Otsuka, a part he previously played for the production's premiere in San Diego, California in 2012.

Previews begin at the Longacre Theatre on Tuesday (06Oct15) and George is already looking forward to gathering his Star Trek fans for a special spooky show a week before opening night.

"Halloween night... we're calling it Star Trek night," he explained to U.S. breakfast show Today. "We're having all my fans from sci-fi come as who they really are...

"If you're a Klingon warrior, come in full regalia, or an Andorian princess, or a Starfleet officer. The theatre is going to be filled with Star Trek people!"

The story of Allegiance is inspired by George's own family's painful experiences in a U.S. internment camp during World War II, when he and his Japanese relatives were forced out of their Los Angeles residence in 1942 and ordered to set up home in a series of different relocation camps.

George, 78, previously expressed his excitement at having his childhood experiences play out on the Great White Way.

"I consider this my legacy project," he told The New York Times. "This is the first time that this dark chapter of American history will be done on the Broadway stage."
