John Cho as Sulu

Another interesting piece of casting in the new Star Trek movie is John Cho as Hikaru Sulu, not least of all because John is Korean/American - and Sulu is from Japan - go figure!

Anyway, should bring some light-hearted entertainment...

Once again, manipulation done in Paint.NET

Download is 1200 x 900 wallpaper verison.

Actually, Hikaru Sulu was an American-born Japanese-Hispanic. He was born in San Fransisco and spoke Japanese, English, and Spanish fluently. He wasn't supposed to just represent the Japanese, though, Sulu was named after the Sulu Sea in order to embody all of Asia.

Just as a factoid.

So while the character himself was Japanese, part of the nations he was meant to represent was Korea.

And John Cho is awesome, so... :3

(George Takai is still better, but meh)

Awesome piece. :giggle:
"Mister Sulu, set course for White Castle."

"With pleasure, sir."
