Remember, his family name rhymes with gay.

See, the sword represents his dick.

I remember this episode. It all made about as much sense as this.
|Bort - 2009-05-13 |
I actually get that reference.

"I'll protect you fair maiden!"
What a great line.

Admittedly he does look like he was great in the sack.
I thought he looks like he's trying to get a part in one of those Bruce Lee knock-off movies.

I was playing Star Trek Pinball a year ago and was wondering why the playfield artist depicted Sulu shirtless with a sword...finally the mystery is solved for me...and hopefully for you viewers at home...

80s mom pants.

This is one of my earliest memories of Sulu.

Give this a "Gay Blade" tag.
|SteamPoweredKleenex - 2009-05-13 |
So will the FCC ban this episode because a gay man's nipples are displayed on a prime-time TV show?

Probably the biggest disappointment of the new movie was when Sulu needs to stab a Romulan to death and he takes out his futuristic extendo-sword and it's sort of a generic katana-looking thing and not a 16th-century French epee.
Especially considering he explicitly mentions earlier in the film that he had training in fencing, and he then proceeds to swing his foldy-katana about like a 14-year-old nerd fighting a tree.
That's because the bulk of the audience grew up on "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and not "The Three Musketeers."
This is not to say the movie isn't great, by the way, it's just an expression of how fucking awesome it would have been if he had been leaping off chandeliers and sliding down bannisters skewering motherfuckers. Asian martial arts are officially played out.
The practice of kendo is also sometimes referred to as Japanese fencing. Since kendo simulates fighting with a katana type of curved blade, it still makes sense.
Although the new Sulu is Korean so who really cares.
There is a Korean version of kendo (kenbo or something like that), and it looks like kendo with extra somersault spaz attacks. Everyone wins!
I haven't seen the movie or this clip. (The clip is dead)

This was a really awesome coming-out.
|Cleaner82 - 2009-05-13 |
Okay, that man is fit.
|StanleyPain - 2009-05-13 |
Spock made a joke?
CLEARLY THIS CANNOT BE CANON.
|Tuan Jim - 2009-05-13 |
He is really quite a handsome man. And Ms. Nichols was gorgeous. Whoever the actress they have for the new movie looks phenomenal, too.
Hey guys, looks are really important, 'kay?
|mouser - 2009-05-13 |
Not a sword. A foil. And I have one just like it! (My father was fencing in the 60s ...)
|Blaise - 2009-05-13 |
Reminds me of what a dick Kirk is.
|dueserpenti - 2009-05-13 |
That's one fine hunk of Japanese.
|oddeye - 2009-05-14 |
Jesus, he is pretty buffed up, especially for the time this was filmed.
|Patient Property - 2009-05-14 |
sulu? .... are you space drunk?
|memedumpster - 2009-05-14 |
You know, the new movie isn't unlike this. This is pretty much how they all behaved.
|pastorofmuppets - 2009-05-15 |
Wow, if there was ever a time to get Sulu and Uhura confused, this was not it. +5 for the video but -1000 for dashed hopes.
|Squeamish - 2009-05-17 |
I really like that part at the beginning where he's thrusting his long, thin sword down that wide, empty hallway.
|Clever Name - 2009-05-31 |
I hope they make the next movie more like the old series.
Less big-alien-thing-threatening-all-of-Earth's-population and more of ship-on-the-edge-of-the-known-galaxy-encountering-weird-shit.
|Lies, lies, LIES! - 2009-06-25 |
Jesus god that man was hot.
|duck&cover - 2009-09-30 |
He sliced off one of Shatner's nipples by accident in that scene. True story.
