Star Trek: Here's a piece of news and a mind blower...

  • Are you sure you didn't mean Growing Pains?
  • This came out (teh heh) a few years ago IIRC.
  • What a great very special episode. Ended in a freeze frame. Like Boner was going to go fight Contras and shit.

    WRT the topic at hand, George Takei has the greatest voice of all time. I love it. In my mind everyone in Japan speaks English with the same diction and poise. If I make a robot, it's gonna have that voice.
  • i just thought it weird that this was slashdot's fortune at the bottom:

    "Violence in reality is quite different from theory. -- Spock, "The Cloud Minders", stardate 5818.4"

    heh... weird.
  • Brings new meaning to the phrase "Yes, Captain."

    I can't say that I'm really surprised.

    George Takei, who as helmsman Sulu steered the Starship Enterprise through three television seasons and six movies, has come out as a homosexual in the current issue of Frontiers, a biweekly Los Angeles magazine covering the gay and lesbian community.

    Of course it was a bi-weekly magazine. Couldn't it have been a homoweekly one?

    Ah! I love it when my sense of humor reaches new lows!



  • When fiancé told me about this last night, suddenly a bit of information I had previously made sense.

    Takei and Koenig had to share a dressing room on the origional series. And Koenig hated Takei and the fact he had to share his space with him.

    I guess now it makes sense.

  • It's surprising in that I never looked at Sulu and thought, "he's gay," but people coming out just don't surprise me anymore. Frankly, I never really think about what they're doing in their own time.
    • I always looked at Scotty and thought "What sort of fecking accent is that" he is meant to be from around Aberdeen , I lived in Aberdeen most of my life. I suppose though , Kirk was meant to have hair and I always thought "HE KILLED MY HAMSTER"

    And this is the best I could find

    Sulu: "Sir, you did it."

    Kirk: "I did nothing! Except get caught with my britches down. Must be going
        senile." [To Saavik] "Mister Saavik, you go right on quoting regulations!
        Meantime, let's find out how badly we've been hurt."

    Uhura: [Gasp!]

    Saavik: [Gasp!]
