George Takei, the actor who played Lt. Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series, says he is delighted that the franchise’s new movie, Star Trek Beyond has a gay character in it, but the decision to make Sulu gay was a “really unfortunate” decision because it went against series creator Gene Roddenberry’s original vision. Simon Pegg, who co-write the movie script (and played Scotty) respectfully disagreed.
