Re: Cho On Playing Asian Characters

"Hikaru" does first show up in Vonda McIntyre's "The Entropy Effect." Whether it had been used previously in fan fiction, I have no idea.

Roddenberry may have told Takei that story about how Sulu was named, but he actually named the character after Herb Solow ("Inside Star Trek", page 79) - which of course occurred before Takei was hired.
