Re: Sulu was named for the sea

When George Takei was a guest at the Denver Star Trek convention in 1990, I asked him during his presentation what, if any, was Sulu's intended given name. He told me and about 3000 other people that GR had told him as early as 1966 that Sulu's given name was always intended to be Hikaru. Vonda McIntyre is simply the first to use it, and not actually the one who came up with it.
