George Takei is trekking to “Hawaii Five-0.”

The “Star Trek” alum has booked a guest-starring role as the uncle of Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim).

No airdate has been announced at this time, but he will appear on this current third season of the CBS drama.

CBS first announced the casting news on Twitter, blasting: “Can u say HAWAII FIVE-OH MY?! The incredible @GeorgeTakei will appear as Chin’s Uncle this season!”

The gig will reunite Takei with his former TV son Masi Oka, who plays “5-0′s” Dr. Max Bergman, as Takei played Oka’s father on “Heroes.”

“Hawaii Five-0″ airs Mondays at 10/9c on CBS.
