[QUOTE=Trek Survivor;7609015Good comparison, though I think Chief O'Hara probably had more lines than Sulu!! [/quote]
You are right--just form memory, O'Hara was in more episodes with more dialogue, and played a larger role than Sulu on ST. Yet Takei thought, "I am...a captain!!"
Slightly off-topic, but I was intrigued to read that the actors who played O'Hara and Commissioner Gordon really DIDN'T get on... it's not just Trek where this sort of thing is focused on.
Yeah, apparently, Neil Hamilton (Gordon) could not stand Repp's fake Irish accent, which he felt was over the top
. Someone should have tapped Hamilton on the shoulder and remind him that he's on a show where two guys run around in colorful costumes, and operate out of a cave which just so happend to have an atomic reactor as their car's power source....
