Sulu comes out!

The actor that played Sulu on the original Star Trek series has, at the age of 68, come out of the closet and proclaimed he's gay.

I've got nothing against homosexuals, and I applaud his coming out late in life which must have been difficult.

However, there are too many jokes here not to speak up.

  • I was sure I saw his eyebrows perk up a bit whenever Kirk said "Captain's Log"
  • "Mr Spock, give me your vulcan nerve pinch... on this nerve here!"
  • No wonder Ohuru's come-hither looks had no effect!
  • "I could have sworn I heard 'warp factor five!' coming from his quarters last night", says Kirk

OK, I'll stop now.
