Find Your Favorite Star Trek Actors on Twitter

Ever wondered which of your favorite Star Trek actors are on Twitter and which aren’t? Wonder no more… the ubergeeks at Techi have assembled a comprehensive list. Please note that we have only included the major actors from each series and the last Star Trek movie. We also respectfully do not mention actors that are deceased.

Actors listed with fake/unverified accounts have not been officially verified by Twitter to be the “real deal”. Some of them may be real, some of them may not be; we left it up to you to decide. Regretfully, we don’t have them on speed dial. Yet.

Leonard Nimoy

He made the character of Spock famous on the 1966 television series of Star Trek and was also in the 2009 Star Trek movie. You can expect Nimoy to tweet about what upcoming events he will be at, what he has been working on and some personal things going on in his life.
