‘Star Trek Beyond’ Reveals John Cho’s Sulu Is Gay

Some very cool news about this summer’s Star Trek Beyond, via the Australian newspaper the Herald Sun: They report that Beyond will reveal that John Cho’s Hikaru Sulu is gay. The character is also revealed to be “the loving father of a daughter with a same sex partner. And in typical trailblazing Trek fashion - it’s just not a big deal.” At least the daughter aspect fits with what little the previous Star Trek series revealed of Sulu’s private life; in 1994’s Star Trek Generations, Sulu’s daughter, Ensign Demora Sulu, serves as the helmsman on the Enterprise-B.

Looking Back At The Great Comics Works of John Byrne

Byrne-Featured

John Byrne is a controversial figure in comics, all the more so as he's moved to disavow his work with mainstream publishers, yet his legacy within the industry is undeniable, and his contributions to iconic franchise properties and to early creator-owned independent work are worthy of celebration.

Born on this day in 1950, John Byrne moved from England to Canada at the age of eight, and it was here that he first encountered American superhero comics. He enrolled in --- but dropped out of --- the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, and began contributing to Roger Stern and Bob Layton’s Contemporary Pictoral Literature. Their character Rog-2000 was spotted by Charlton Comics, and the team began contributing back-up stories in the pages of E-Man.

Report: CBS ‘Star Trek’ Series Returning to Original Franchise Continuity

CBS Star Trek Details Original Continuity
Paramount

Among the many questions raised by CBS’ announcement of a new All-Access streaming Star Trek for 2017 under Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller, fans had to wonder if a TV return would follow the J.J. Abrams reboot films, return to the original timeline, or perhaps exist independent of both. Now, reports suggest that not only is the original continuity back in play, we know which Star Trek properties the new CBS iteration will fall between.

One:12 Collective Spock is a Wonderful Testament to the Sci-Fi Icon

Mezco One:12 Collective Star Trek Mr. Spock

Late last year, Mezco revealed the Star Trek license would be part of its One:12 Collective series, beginning with the most memorable science officer in fiction, Mr. Spock. Though not due to arrive on shelves until later this spring, Mezco surprised us with a pre-release version at Toy Fair earlier this month. Though it doesn't come with all the accessories, the Spock we got was the final figure version, which gives a strong enough idea of what to expect from the complete release. As we'd expected from the production photos shared in December, the One:12 Collective Mr. Spock is another fine entry into what is quickly becoming Mezco's signature figure line.

Out of the box, this pre-release Spock includes the base figure, the posing stand and a Starfeet insignia base matching Spock's rank. The retail version will come with an alternate head, multiple alternate hands, a phaser, tricorder and communicator. Kudos to Mezco for thinking to include the "Live long and prosper" salute hand in this version though. The simple hands would have been fine, but at least now we can honor the man the way he should be remembered forever--as a kind, smart man who wanted nothing but peace and prosperity for all life.

Mezco Makes it So for Sulu in the Star Trek One:12 Collective

While the world waits for more on Mezco's One:12 Collective superheroes, the company is steadily dropping new Star Trek characters to hold the fort. Not that we're complaining. For too long Star Trek's original cast has been relegated to some fairly unremarkable figures. The One:12 Collective has been a solid gold hit for Mezco since it started last year, and its latest additions should keep it trending upwards.

Joining Spock this year will be Hikaru Sulu, the fencing expert and senior helmsman of the original USS Enterprise. Since debuting in the '60s, Sulu went on to become an accomplished member of Starfleet in his own right, eventually captaining the USS Excelsior. As great as it was to see Sulu get proper accolades, he's most fondly remembered for his appearances on the original show, where George Takei made the Japanese physicist such an icon of science fiction. It's also the version Mezco is hoping to celebrate with its upcoming figure.

Logic Prevails With Mezco’s One:12 Collective Mr. Spock

Though to this point Mezco's One:12 Collective has been limited to comic heroes, the company had teased some classic movie and television characters would join the line eventually. The wait won't be much longer for the first figure based on a real person. This spring, Mezco's One:12 Collective adds Star Trek to its roster starting with the smartest man in Starfleet. Well, at least maybe the smartest man on the USS Enterprise.

Yes, that's right; Mr. Spock, the first officer of Starfleet's flagship starship, will be getting his very own 1/12 scale figure to fit in alongside the likes of Batman and Judge Dredd (and eventually Frankenstein and Space Ghost). Even though there's a new movie on the way, Mezco's figure is steeped in nostalgia, and brings us original series' incarnation of the fan-favorite character as portrayed by Leonard Nimoy. That's okay with us though. Old school Spock rules.
