....Zachary Quinto who plays Spock and is 'out'.......is now disappointed with George Takei.....for being disappointed at Sulu's 'outing'....

........this 'Star Trek' universe is just so full of disappointment.....


Zachary Quinto Upset by George Takei's Opposition to Star Trek Film's Gay Sulu

....There’s a whole lot of disappointment in the Star Trek universe right now.

Shortly after George Takei — who played Star Trek’s Hikaru Sulu on TV and in movies from 1996 to 1991 — said it’s “unfortunate” that the character is being revealed as gay in the upcoming film Star Trek Beyond, Zachary Quinto — who plays Spock in the big-screen franchise — is weighing in with a counterpoint.

“As a member of the LGBT community myself, I was disappointed by the fact that George was disappointed,” Quinto tells Pedestrian.TV, adding, “I get it that he has had his own personal journey and has his own personal relationship with this character, but … as we established in the first Star Trek film in 2009, we’ve created an alternate universe.”

He concludes by saying, “My hope is that eventually George can be strengthened by the enormously positive response from especially young people who are heartened by and inspired by this really tasteful and beautiful portrayal of something that I think is gaining acceptance and inclusion in our societies across the world, and should be.”

Star Trek Beyond co-writer Simon Pegg has also weighed in on the issue, telling the UK’s Guardian, “[We] loved the idea of it being someone we already knew because the audience have a pre-existing opinion of that character as a human being, unaffected by any prejudice. Their sexual orientation is just one of many personal aspects, not the defining characteristic.”



those crazy 'Star Trek'.....cats......?!

My feeling was Takei was pouting that he didn't get his way.

Regardless, it's a fictional show.. does it really warrant the issue?

Not mine. Many who knew Roddenberry personally - and in particular the cast of ST: TOS - are and have always been insanely loyal to the man and his vision.

You know, it's really swell that Star Trek is now filled with all this politically correct "gay-ness", but I don't care. I just want to watch the show and be immersed in the plot.

I do NOT need to know who's doing who and with what toy or species. I DO however need to know that there is a Klingon ship uncloaking off the port bow and their weapons are powered up. At that point I expect the Mr Sulu (or Mr Spock) character of any sexual orientation to take the proper action and do his job to entertain me.

This is all TMI. It takes the fun out of it when you start worrying about this stuff.

You put all those superfluous dots in your writing to be "unique"??

Writing a coherent paragraph is "drone like" and "carbon copy clone"??

Good grief! RollingEyesSmiley5

....heard of something called "style"....people are different and everyone does things there own way......why.....do you like to question what other people do.....??

if I asked you why you eat with a fork and not your fingers.....please.....if you are rolling your eyes....you probably need to see a doctor about that.....and your other issues with others doing things that you don't like......someone called H*****....did the same thing....they did something about the people that they didn't like doing things differently........

you should probably concern yourself with thing more important than the formatting of post on a forum....don't you think.....???

sheesh......<rolls entire face>.....
