It should have come as no surprise when Mr. Sulu, aka George Takei, came out of the closet a few years back. According to his statement in Frontiers magazine in October 2005, he had been in a committed relationship with his partner Brad for 18 years. While it came as a shock to many, it was something of an open secret to his fans since the 70's. How did they know? The clues were there all along.

Scrutable -adj. - Capable of being understood through study and observation; comprehensible.

Should have seen that one coming from a mile away. How about this.

Anybody else would have been turned on by this chick. All Sulu can do is get defensive and panic when she gets closer.

Well, that's one theory.

Now, don't you feel silly for being shocked when he made the announcement? The writing has been on the wall for decades.
