    That is actually my street and it would be cool if George and Brad wandered down it. It’s actually a very nice street with just three houses.

    I dropped in the background of John’s street just to surprise him. He just said that Roy and Kathy were ‘on the street’ and I was going to put them in a downtown environment, but changed my mind.

    Similar to when I almost bumped shoulders with Carrie Fisher in a hotel lobby door. No words were exchanged, but she looked into my eyes as if to say: “Who’s this big Wookie taking up all the space?” Yes, she too is short.

    George walks around in old Starfleet uniform?

    I used to live in Columbus, Ohio and once saw the OSU basketball squad, with Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek, walking through the airport. And, while at my university job a few years ago, I said “hi” to Shirley Chisholm walking down a hallway, and received a “hi” back.

    That’s just Scott’s artistic touch.

    We’ve been falling behind schedule. We’ll be running some golden oldies this week to get a chance to catch up again. There’s a Sunday strip up now. As NBC used to say: If you haven’t seen it, it;s new to you!

    I have certain comic language tricks I use. Any actor who used to be on any version of Trek will be shown in a Trek costume- for instant recognition. Not every reader is a Trek fan, so it helps those who aren’t. And after all, the regular characters wear the same outfits every day. It’s a comic strip. Its reality is a little different.

    I’m not really up on this… is Brad George’s husband?

    It would be pretty cool to have them walk through my little neighborhood. Though George’s uniform might make some people do a double-take.

    Yes, they’re married. And this also underlines my reason for the uniform. We can’t assume every reader knows everything about Trek, or will recognize the caricature. So George is in his Starfleet uniform, because most readers will at least know that it comes from Star Trek.

    George Takei discussed gay rights, Star Trek, and becoming a comic book hero with the Huffington Post.

    I am one of those who loathed those uniforms they switched to for all but the first Trek movie with the original cast. Hated them their look. And the fact they ignored the original colors.
    -
    But otherwise I’d recognize Capt. Sulu anywhere. Got to meet him back in the middle 1970’s. He had done the Star Trek cartoon which unlike Paramount I see as canon.
    -
    He had done an excellent PBSmovie on Japanese in the USA and how they were treated just before, during and after World War 2. His impassioned performance still lingers with me all these years later. He was congenial and we spoke for a bit as we walked from one of the meeting rooms down the corridor to another place he had to be.
