alright listen up fuckers. we talk a lot about Jim and Spock and Uhura, but right now I feel the need to bring up this sexy badass lovemuffin stud. this fantastic specimen of man is Captain (Lieutenant in TOS) Hikaru Sulu, played by the ever lovely George Takei (who deserves a goddamn medal for being the best person ever, but that’s a topic for another day).
y’all better respect this man, you feel me? not only was he the most bamf pilot this side of the Federation, but he was also a brilliant astrophysicist and a strategic genius. that’s right. he was a strategic genius, just like Kirk. he even went on to captain his own vessel, the USS Excelsior, after serving on the Enterprise for many years. and he did a damn good job of it too.
in his spare time, Sulu practiced botany, judo, and fencing. because when you are as fucking suave as Sulu you don’t give a crap what people think. you do whatever the fuck you want and dare people to give you shit about it. (and if they ever did, he’d cut their ass with his pointy sword and judo chop the fucker in the back of the head all while caring for some of the universe’s rarest plants with a hand so gentle it makes clouds weep with envy.)
he was extremely loyal, resourceful, compassionate, fucking hilarious, and calm under pressure. you only wish you were as cool as Hikaru Sulu, okay? if there was anyone that you wanted on your zombie apocalypse team, it’d be him.
now I want y’all to drill this knowledge into your skulls so that whenever you hear the term bamf or badass, I want you to automatically think of Hikaru Sulu.
that man practically invented debonair.
so have some goddamn respect.
