Didn't care.  My interest in the personal lives of the actors of Trek extends only to their availability for filming.

No big deal to me.  I've know people of both types and it really doesn't matter.  What matters is what they are like as a human being.  The times I've seen George he always has been funny and gracious with the fans.  He's a great guy.

I think my thought process may have been........

"Really?  Sulu?......Hmm....I hope he gets to use whatever kickass power  he has in Heroes soon."

in other words, I am usually a "whatever" type of person when it comes things like this.

Well, I was listening to Howard Stern, and it was years before Takai came out, and I thought, Of course he is. So?

To me it was like have a big reveal that ... drumroll .... Toast ... is really .... WARM BREAD! Thank you very much! Thank you!

Aw man, that was so annoying!

Now I can't watch this scene without thinking of that.



Mirror, Mirror is definitely my fave TOS episode.

Mirror Mirror is my favorite too. 


Just watched it last night.

Have you ever listened to Spock's Beard?


I have been and always will be, your friend.

Then it should make perfect sense. Mirror universe, not gay/regular universe, gay. There, is that better? :)

The problem with that is in the "regular" universe he is obviously attracted to Lieutenant Ilia in STTMP! :boxing

Gentlemen, some of these posts, though clearly in good fun, could be taken with some offense by others, be careful to keep the jocularity respectful of anyone's personal preferences. :)

:) Thanks for that post Bryan.. I have been really good at biting my tongue with some of these comments.  I have to keep telling myself it's all in good fun.. but sometimes it's tough.

I certainly meant no offense Kenny but was only pointing out an inconsistency in Locutus' reasoning. My apologies!

Yeah, keep it respectful please.  One thing to keep in mind, is a little thing called ACTING.  Actors constantly have to pretend to love or even hate someone else in a TV show, movie, stage, etc.  No matter what their real life preferences are, they create a character based on the script and direction they are given.  I mean look at all the alien women Kirk jumped into bed with.  Does that mean Shatner is like that in real life? 

Anyway, always keep in mind the Vulcan IDIC idea.  Infinite diversity in infinite combinations.  I've had the chance to see that quite a bit recently with my travels overseas.

Ummm, yeah, Shatner probably is like that in real life, Rico.... ;)
