Upthread people were saying stuff about 'sulu for captain' being a campaign from well into the TOS feature era, but if you've read MAKING OF TREK CONVENTIONS, which came out in 1980 I think, it is pretty clearly stated that the 'sulu for capt' thing started during the early major cons in the 70s.
I didn't know that. But I'll bet Takei is the person who started Sulu for Captain, in much the way Roddenberry personally engineered the letter writing campaigns that delayed STAR TREK's cancelation.
