Cho Meets Jonathan Frakes

Jonathan Frakes(Riker) visited the Star Trek set at one point, making an impression on Cho.

As reported by Jam! Showbiz, Cho spoke more about his Star Trek XI experience, including the visit by The Next Generation's Commander Riker. "I did meet Jonathan Frakes," said Cho, and he is freakishly huge. A hulk of a man. He came by the set and I met him very briefly."

Working on Star Trek XI was a pleasure for the new Mr. Sulu. "I am under orders not to say anything," Cho said. "I will say it was a childhood fantasy come true. There's nothing to compare it to. I just say being on the bridge of the Enterprise was like being on the bridge of the Enterprise."

Cho went on to discuss how Star Trek grew on him as he got older. "My Trek experience was reruns," he said. "I remember as a kid I thought it was silly. I was distracted by the velour. But as I got older, I realized it was an incredibly intelligent show, daring and thoughtful and meditative."

Excuse me?
Distracted by the velour?
I mean, how gay do you have to be to even notice "the velour"?!?



P.S. Now understand, when I say "gay" I mean it the same way Eric Cartman does.
