interpolationspolynom online dating - What is george takei's take on online dating
I’ve been here relaxing on vacation, but have noticed that many of you have been following the “gay Sulu” story and wanted to know why I’m being such a sourpuss.
It is thrilling to know that future generations will not see LGBTs go wholly unrepresented in the Trek universe.
On the specific question of Sulu being gay, when I was first approached with the concept, I responded that I hoped instead that Gene Roddenberry’s original characters and their backgrounds would be respected.
How exciting it would be instead if a new hero might be created, whose story could be fleshed out from scratch, rather than reinvented. While I understand that we are in an alternate timeline with the new Trek movies, for me it seemed less than necessary to tinker with an existing character in order to fulfill Gene’s hope of a truly diverse Trek universe.
And while I am flattered that the character of Sulu apparently was selected as an homage to me, this was never about me or what I wanted.
But Star Trek has always pushed the boundaries and opened new opportunities for actors, including myself.
