Actor 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.

Takei told The Associated Press on Thursday that his new onstage role as psychologist Martin Dysart in "Equus," helped inspire him to publicly discuss his sexuality.

Takei described the character as a "very contained but turbulently frustrated man." The play opened Wednesday at the David Henry Hwang Theater in Los Angeles, the same day that Frontiers magazine featured a story on Takei's coming out.

This is nothing new. These kind of relations have been going on forever aboard the Starship Enterprise.

Nah, the main reason I don't like him anymore is that he's a hypocritical crybaby. He tools on anyone and everyone, but when people started goofing on him and his wife breaking up he turned into a dick.

Can dish it out but CERTAINLY can't take it. :lol: He's done anyway.
