HOLLYWOOD – Star Trek Beyond director insists that Tribbles are gay.
Following the announcement that Sulu is gay, Justin Lin, the director of Star Trek Beyond, has revealed that another Star Trek favorite, the Tribbles, are also gay.
It’s one of those things that we talked about from the very beginning. Let’s open up about the sexuality of all the elements of the Star Trek universe. Sulu seemed obviously gay to us, Scotty is bi-sexual, Kirk is definitely Bi. I mean he’s basically pan-sexual. And of course the Tribbles are very gay.
George Takei once more responded negatively to the news:
I’m the only gay in the village.
Simon Pegg and William Shatner however welcomed the news as a positive development. Shatner told the Studio Exec:
I love what they’re doing with the universe. They’re bringing it up to date in a way that is admirable. After all the future can’t be more old fashioned than the present. Chris Pine for instance looks old fashioned to me. I like the kid, but he isn’t ‘with it’ as the kids say. Maybe it’s be better if TJ Hooker took over. I don’t know. It’s not my place to say.
Simon Pegg told the Studio Exec that Tribbles were a perfect example of LGBT rights.
They’re in a single sex relationship but they have complete equality, including reproduction rights.
