Like his predecessor in the Sulu role, John Cho hopes for better things for his character.
Although Star Trek into Darkness has just released, Cho is already looking to the future.
Cho would like to see Sulu eventually get his own ship. “It was fun to sit in the captain’s chair and Sulu, not in our movies but in the previous iterations, does get his own chair (and ship),” said Cho, “so I hope that that is the case in ours as well…if we get that far.”
Fans will remember that George Takei lobbied for a Sulu captaincy, and that happened in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
