Re: George Takei and Politics

No idea what his compensation was for the animated series, but for the live action series, Takei recieved SAG scale when it came to reruns. That meant a percentage of his original payment for the first five reruns only -- and after that, he got nothing.

Even Shatner, who earned more than SAG scale when it came to reruns, was only paid for the first five reruns.

Subsequently, the SAG contract was renegotiated, and now actors are paid a percentage of their original salary each and every time a rerun airs.
