This doesn't sound like a man that had no interest in being a Captain.
Takei wanted to play interesting and challenging scenes, not necessarily that his character got promotions. After all, Sulu was promoted for TMP and ST II, and his lines stayed the same.

"Glorious! I worked hard on that one. I lobbied and lobbied and lobbied. Finally it happened"
He lobbied at conventions for a TV series spin-off called "Captain Sulu", he wasn't demanding it of the studio for ST VI.
