Top 50 Star Trek Characters – #31 Sulu
Hikaru Sulu was the helmsman of the original Enterprise under Captain Kirk.
He and Ensign Chekov would become close, sharing similar stations on the bridge. An aficionado of ancient weaponry and botany, he was also a huge fan of fencing, as that hobby was extremely prominent while under the intoxicating-like strain from planet Psi 2000.
Mr. Sulu would eventually rise to the rank of Captain during his career and command his own ship, the U.S.S. Excelsior.
