Has anyone ever heard this Sulu Sea origin story before?
A group of Sydney fans took George Takei to out then-favourite restaurant called The Philippino in about 1984 and there was a huge banner on the wall, with a map of The Philippines, right behind us. The label "Sulu Sea" was in large letters and George told us that it had inspired his character's name.
If George said it, that makes it as official as can possibly be.
Amen.
