Today marks one week to Star Trek: The Original Series’ 49th anniversary. And, to celebrate the occasion, we’re revealing four in-game TOS crew for Timelines, starting today with Hikaru Sulu.
Before his promotion to Starfleet captain, Lt. Sulu was a command division officer aboard the USS Enterprise. Serving as a starship helmsmen and a security officer, his downtime was often spent in the ship’s botany room, tending to a myriad of flora.
From time to time, Lt. Sulu assumed command of the Enterprise when Captain James T. Kirk, First Officer Commander Spock, and Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott served on landing parties or were otherwise occupied. These moments, as much as his experience, helped forge Sulu’s personal suite of skills and traits.
Sulu’s skills are Security and Command, given his duties aboard the Enterprise. His traits are human, Federation, Starfleet, pilot, and resourceful. Generally speaking, it’s usually a good idea to have Lt. Sulu around if you expect to encounter dangerous alien lifeforms and conflicts requiring a strong presence of command.
