Via CBS News: "Star Trek" creator's son weighs in on gay Sulu
LOS ANGELES -- The son of late "Star Trek"
creator Gene Roddenberry says his father would have been on board with
an Enterprise crew member being portrayed as gay, but he's unsure if it
should have been helmsman Hikaru Sulu.
Rod Roddenberry said his
father would have been supportive of a gay "Trek" character and
commended the "Star Trek Beyond" filmmakers for featuring an LGBT
character. Roddenberry died in 1991.
