|You might be able to make out Cho as |
Sulu amidst all the explosions and lens flare.
|What? Wesley got kidnapped, stabbed|
by pig soldiers and sentenced to death
by nudists and that was just season one.
"I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out of it, which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one's personal orientations."
Sulu's family will presumably be back home on Earth and not on the ship. I mean, because only a lunatic would endanger their own family by bringing them into space with them, right Dr. Crusher?
|Turns out trekkies are into kink...|
|Wait, is there maybe some other |
guy named George Takei?
Which, ok, no one ever said Sulu wasn't gay and even if Takei had been playing the character as straight, the new Trek movies take place in some kind of weird alternate timeline where Vulcans are almost extinct and Khan's a white English guy, so I don't really see the problem. On the other hand George Takei is George Takei damnit and since he played Sulu first, there is probably no one more qualified to have an opinion on this than he is.
-Captain Hikaru Sulu*
|Maybe all the gay crew members|
are in hanging out in the ship's gym?
But hey, there's a new series coming next year and while details are excruciatingly scant, show runner Bryan Fuller recently and very noncommittally didn't completely not unsay that there wouldn't not be a gay character, so who knows?
|"Who doesn't not know? Certainly it is not I who don'tn't."|
-Bryan Fuller, maybe playing
things a little too close to the vest
*On the other, other hand, Sulu didn't officially get a first name until Star Trek VI, so how important the character's personal details were to Gene Roddenberry and his original creation is anyone's guess...
