George Takei returned to his sometime role on "The Howard Stern Show" Monday and as is always the case he fit right in with the rest of the crew.

Takei has been sitting in for a week at a time a few weeks a year with Stern since the host moved his show from terrestrial radio to satellite in 2006.

Though Stern calls him his announcer and he does read a few announcements, mostly the former "Star Trek" star and gay icon just sits in as a member of the panel.

Monday Stern opened the show talking with Takei about his love life with his husband Brad -- a well-known topic to Stern fans.

The two also openly talked about Rob Zombie, a neighbor of Takei's, and how Takei announced him as "Rob Zodiak" during Stern's massive birthday show. Takei actually apologized to Zombie on social media for the gaffe.

Takei was in New York to promote his new documentary, ''To Be Takei'' which is coming out this week. The film starts with Takei's experience being held with his family in a Japanese-American internment camp during World War II. Stern is in the movie, though like with all things he does, he said he appeared begrudgingly. Stern admitted to not seeing the film but said that his agent, Don Buchwald, liked it.
