SJW-convergence in Star Trek

Who would have thought that Star Trek, which has always been at the forefront of SJWism, could be further converged?
In the summer of 1968, George Takei attended a pool party at the Hollywood Hills home of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. The actor, then 31 and famous for his role as Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the USS Enterprise, swam up to his boss and "had a conversation with him, a very private one. I was still closeted, so I did not want to come out to him."

Nevertheless, Takei — who announced he was gay in 2005  — was fully attuned to the gay equality conversation gaining momentum at the time. He felt it was a topic worth exploring on the socially minded science-fiction series, which had previously tackled issues like the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam War through keenly observed allegory.

But the show had recently seen its lowest ratings ever, with an episode featuring TV's first interracial kiss between Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura, which NBC affiliates in the South refused to air. While sympathetic to his star's pitch, Roddenberry felt he was in no position to take those kinds of risks.

"He was a strong supporter of LGBT equality," recalls Takei, now 79. "But he said he has been pushing the envelope and walking a very tight rope — and if he pushed too hard, the show would not be on the air." Alas, the show was canceled the following season anyway.

But Star Trek has lived long and prospered for studio home Paramount, spawning six TV series and 13 feature films. True to its title, the latest big-screen outing, Star Trek Beyond, has gone where none have gone before: Star John Cho — who assumes the Sulu mantle for the third time in the reboots — has told Australia's Herald Sun that the character is revealed to be gay....

Except Takei wasn't overjoyed. He had never asked for Sulu to be gay. In fact, he'd much prefer that he stay straight. "I’m delighted that there’s a gay character," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Gene’s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate."

Takei explains that Roddenberry was exhaustive in conceiving his Star Trek characters. (The name Sulu, for example, was based on the Sulu Sea off the coast of the Philippines, so as to render his Asian nationality indeterminate.) And Roddenberry had always envisioned Sulu as heterosexual.
Straights attempting to virtue-signal on behalf of gays do their best, but they never get it right. I don't know a single gay man who likes the Saint Gay couples that pervade Hollywood entertainment or think they are anything but dressed-up suburban married couples, about as convincing as urban fantasy's kick-ass kung fu waifs, science fiction's men with tits, and the Magic Negroes who like nothing better than to defy gangbangers and help out white folk in distress when they aren't busy philosophizing, providing moral instruction, or being President.

One would think, at some point, someone would have asked George Takei, or at least understood that there is an insult implicit in the idea that he could not act.

If they're gonna do it right, shouldn't the Sulu character be "reimagined" as a wheel-chair bound 600-lb blind black lesbian?

Having been a fan off and on, although Star Trek: The Next Generation was like a horrorshow nightmare of "what if the UN won?":

It's neither truthful to any of the past nor explainable with their weird reboot premise of the guy traveling back in time to muck things up. There was a Sulu, Sulu's daughter, on the Enterprise B after all.

If they are going to do something, make it out of whole cloth; don't take something existing and pervert it or try to stamp it on the end. Sulu the character was well played by Takei the actor (as opposed to Takei the activist). It is sort of pissing on Takei's work as well as Roddenberry's vision.

I always liked Cisco because he was developed enough as a character that he could be evil, he could be underhanded, and he didn't have to always be a magic negro. They dropped the whole science worship and they gave him a little ship designed for killing. If they wanted a gay character, they could have had a stylish ultra-masculinist with amazing hair who provided an interesting alternative enemy to the traditional Klingon/Romulan/guys with misshapen faces...but that would have required making a new and believable character.

Saint Gay is a good turn of phrase. Apparently having a taste for chemsex conga lines makes your butt floweth over with sassy wisdom and clean-living monogamy.

You know who actually does love monogamy? Lesbians. But Hollywood wants to portray them as ravenously sexy nymphs rather than the socially awkward fat girls they are in real life.

Interesting that, despite being a peevish, rainbow-boa'ed drama queen, George 'Oh My' Takei has more respect for the characters Gene Roddenberry created than the current writers and producers do.

The new Star Trek is shite anyway. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was an awful film and killed the new franchise's chances of being anything more than a cynical cash-in of the Star Trek brand.

Its greater flaws have been written about at length but even its lesser failings are terrible:

* "Klingons" who look like Lou Gossett Jr from ENEMY MINE
* Simon Pegg continues to do a painfully weak James Doohan impression
* "Fuck You" lensflares
* Engineering looks like a sewage treatment plant. They should've just included the random pounding hammers from GALAXY QUEST

They should call the next film STAR TREK INTO BOLLOCKS.

I have mixed feelings when it comes to George Takei.

On the one hand, he's an unabashed gay rights activist. That makes him an enemy in the cultural war over the proper understanding of homosexual acts as being fundamentally disordered. On the other, he portrayed one of my favorite characters in the original cast of Star Trek and he chose to remain quiet about his private life for years rather than come out when it was considered trailblazing to do so. In fact, he has always struck me as an actor FIRST, and a gay man second. This excerpt just confirms the latter.

I remember when he came to speak at my place of employment and, while he touched on multiple subjects related to Star Trek, the bulk of his talk was on the service of Japanese soldiers in the U.S. Army. He never once mentioned anything about homosexuality.

In short, unlike most SJWs, Takei doesn't define himself by his deviance. He's not a just a mindless talking head, a Pod Person, chanting the endless Progressive incantations to dishearten and wear down the enemy. If asked, he'll spout equalist nonsense, so he's certainly not an ally. But at least he's more than a cipher, which raises the possibility that he could be reached.

He is perhaps a Virtuous Pagan to you.

I kind of have that "Virtuous Pagan" feeling about Milo and Cernovich right now. People who deny the person of Christ but in some ways still support the character of Christ in the world.

It is like C.S. Lewis's rather controversial handling of the righteous Calormene character Emeth. He has Aslan say that any righteous deeds, even if they are done in the name of evil, are still counted as righteous. And, since Aslan is the Way, the Truth, and the Life in Narnia, anyone who sought out the Truth would find him and therefore be saved.

It is a rather messy bit of theology though, and lots of people objected to the idea and the way Lewis handled it.

Oh, and Sisko was the best Star Trek captain by a space mile.

It could easily have gone badly wrong as SocJus stunt casting, but the DS9 writers and Avery Brooks were better than that.

Ben Sisko was a truly groundbreaking character in Star Trek, not because he was black, but because he was a dad.

And not a sadsack loser dad like potato-headed Miles O'Brien with his awful oriental harpy of a wife. Sisko was the kind of dad I'd like to be.

So Kirk shagged his way across the galaxy with no hint of ever being tied down to a family (till his adult son briefly appeared in SEARCH FOR SPOCK), Picard was more reserved but equally unattached. Because much of SF is escapism. But this deprives it of versimilitude and emotional heft.

Then along came Ben. He's a single dad trying his best to raise his son in a difficult situation in a tough quadrant of the galaxy. His relationship with Jake is written realistically.

Ben Sisko is not an idealised caricature of virtue and Jake is not an annoying weirdo like Wesley Crusher. They're recognisably human beings with real personalities and motivations.

I don't believe Roddenberry put that much thought into Sulu's (or any character's) sexuality. I think he was fairly conformist in that the women were all (quite) good looking (no dykes) and no matter what current slash fiction freaks have to say, Kirk and Spock were ship-mates who liked and admired each other, but never more than that. Making current Sulu gay accomplishes nothing, unless gay whales come to destroy the earth maybe?

Yes, Sisko was an excellent character and part of that was because of Avery Brooks who helped shape that character. DS9 was the best of all of the series.

While I was more B5 than DS9 - looking back, I agree, it was the best of the treks, and Sisko, the best of the captains. Decisions in that show at least had consequences past the end of the episode.

George Takei has no problem with the party that interned him during WWII, but does have a problem with the character he is most known for being gay. If it was not his character he would have no problem with the change.

Fans are petitioning Star Wars to have a gay character because an Afghani moslem shot 102 gays in Orlando. Didn't they know Jaba the hut is Lena Dunham

You know who actually does love monogamy? Lesbians.

Not really, people joke that lesbians bring a moving van to a 2nd date but the feminine ones can cheat a lot.

"The name Sulu, for example, was based on the Sulu Sea off the coast of the Philippines, so as to render his Asian nationality indeterminate"

Hikaru Sulu is not indeterminate. The name is Japanese, and he is said to identify with his Samurai heritage. Nor is this random. By the 60s Americans were falling over themselves to forgive and like Germans and Italians, but "Japs" were still feared.

Putting a Japanese and later a Japanese and a Russian in the front was a very progressive statement for the time.

Not quite. First of all, Japanese doesn't have an L. Secondly, the name "Hikaru" wasn't even original. It was added later by some minor novelist and they managed to convince Roddenberry to make it canon.

I like how The Guardian characterizes Takei's calm disapproval as a 'galling attack.' Naturally, for Simon Pegg, heterosplaining to the gay man why he's wrong, the word 'respectful' is used in roughly every other sentence.

Despite being against him in the 'culture war,' I've never seen Takei as a malignant person. He doesn't seem like much of a SJW despite being an 'activist,' because he doesn't tend to attack anybody. It's awesome that we have now progressed to the point where SJWs feel comfortable enough to publicly burn even their allies who are insufficiently extreme.

Fun fact, my grandfather got into a letter-to-the-editor pissing contest with George Takei in the 1990s during the mass-guilting over the internment. Takei had an editorial print in our local paper since we're sort of near where he was interned. If memory serves, he mentioned being put to work when he arrived at the camp (Tule Lake, FYI).

My grandfather, an inveterate and quite talented writer of scathing letters, fired back that "...in December 1941 the Japanese put me to work as well, in the Navy" and Takei received better treatment at the hands of Americans than he (my grandfather) received at the hands of the Takei's countrymen.

Takei responded fairly angrily, which led to more letters and further escalation. It went back and forth like that for two or three letters each until the editor put a stop to it. I assume the editor was embarrassed that his little exercise in virtue-signalling and shaming had backfired.

Always been pretty proud of the old man for that; it was a first-class troll. I wish I still had the clippings.

I've loved Star Trek since I was a kid. Even after I figured out that its depiction of the future was an impossible fantasy I still loved it, and even now that I see that it's always been a weapon of the progressive wave I still have huge affection for it. When it was good, it was very good. It could manage to combine silliness and seriousness in a perfect blend. It could be fun and thought provoking.

A girl I knew hated it for years because it was sci-fi, she'd always insist on turning it over whenever it was on. She hated it more than sports. But she really got into it and started asking me about how the technology worked(!)

I didn't really mind the first rebooted film, it wasn't really Star Trek anymore but I suppose it was better than nothing. There's been so much crappy Trek, it doesn't really bother me when you get a bad edition. You take the rough with the smooth. But I hated Into Darkness. Rarely have I been so disappointed in a cinema. JJ Abrams is an unoriginal hack and all he did was make a crap derivative video game.

Like so many other things I grew up with Star Trek is kind of dead to me now. I'm not going to watch this new one. It's good to see Takei disowning it, the guy always seemed to have class. Even when he told William Shatner to go f*ck himself at his roast.

It takes a little while to find its legs. The first season or two of TNG was pretty spotty too. Stick with DS9 until "Duet" and see what you think then. You need to get to know Garak, at least, before giving up. It's good from there, but really takes off in season 4 when Worf comes on board along with Moore as writer.

I'm in the same boat. I grew up a Trekkie, but not anymore.

The reboot was passable (maybe). At least, I thought, it was bold of them to blow up Vulcan and try to go in a different direction....but in the 2nd movie the brought back Khan. wtf happened to the new direction? I was done after that.

If you're going to watch DS9, just skip the first season entirely. Paramount started development of Voyager part-way into the writing of the second season and hired the SJW feminist, forget her name, that was ruining the characters and converging the plots. That left Ira Stephen Behr in charge, and it just got better after that.
Except the Dax episodes. Every single episode that centered on Dax sucked. Especially the "The Worfs At Home" episodes exploring her relationship with Worf.
The best are the Dominion War episodes, particularly Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges.

Ah, my brother! For such a pretty girl (though the Kid 'n Play hair at the beginning hid some of that), she sure was a boring character. When I rewatched the show, I skipped all her episodes without missing anything.

I can't agree with skipping the first season, though. You have to watch the first and second episodes to know what's going on, especially with Kira's character, Garak, and the Bajorans. Captive Pursuit is a must-watch because Chief O'Brien rules and because "I am Tosk, the Hunted." Battle Lines is very DS9 in that there's no happy ending and you can see that these people won't always get along like a classy starship crew. Duet is simply outstanding, and Progress is similar and almost as good. And for some TOS/TNG-style meaningless fun, I like Move Along Home, though that's not a majority opinion.

Most of the others advance the characters and story in small ways that I think would improve enjoyment of the later seasons, but these are the ones you really shouldn't miss.
