Does anyone know if the logo for the China National Space Administration has been made into a patch?

Well John,

That explains why Sulu got his own command of the starship Excelsior.

Sulu was an American IIRC (from San Francisco; ST:IV The Voyage Home).

George Takei was born in Los Angeles, California, to Fumiko Emily Nakamura and Takekuma Norman Takei, of Japenese descent. His father was an Anglophile, and named him George after British King George VI (Queen Elizabeth II's dad), whose coronation took place on 11 December 1936.

A: I was speaking of the Star Trek character not the actor who portrayed him.

2: I stand corrected about Mr. Sulu's nationality. Mea Culpa.

They could have avoided all this confusion by copying the Klingons. Who are they tryin' to fool, anyway?

Does anyone know the symbolism of the items shown on the Astronaut Center of China patch? There appears to be something akin to the US astronaut symbol (in yellow).

Thanks to Jacques and Erik for the image from their Spacepatches.nl site.

All times are CT (US)
