    Joe, I thought it was IN HONOR of Mr. Takei that Pegg,, “made” Hikaru Sulu gay…and I also thought what was wonderful about it was that it was not done in a “showy” way (oh, look, here’s Sulu kissing a guy! Aren’t we diverse?) but by establishing Hikaru as a man with a loving partner AND a daughter…just an extension of his private life, y’know? One that we have never seen before, or had been established…other than that Sulu is also a botanist, a swordsman, and a master of martial arts. It really surprised me that Mr. Takei was against it, and I still don’t understand his reasoning.

    I also think that if Pegg,, had created a new character who was gay…well, THAT would have been a token decision.
