I lost all respect for Simon Pegg when he said they wrote Sulu as gay in the newer films in honor of George Takei. Then when Takei said, "I really don't think that's a good idea, we should keep the characters as Roddenberry created them" Pegg shifted his statement to, "Fuck you we are doing this and you'll like it."

Plus, really, I haven't enjoyed him in anything that didn't have Nick Frost in it. I used to think Nick Frost was the weaker part of the duo, until they weren't working together. Now I feel Frost is able to put Pegg over.

Never heard that story. I thought he was out of place in Star Trek regardless.

Here you go, Takei was pretty well against the idea. - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/george-takei-reacts-gay-sulu-909154
