Memory Beta

Akira Sulu was formerly a mission giver for several daily missions, "Defend the Sirius Sector Block", "Defend the Regulus Sector Block", and "Defend the Pi Canis Sector Block", but these missions were removed in mid-2012's "Season 6: Under Siege" update. Sulu is now a non-interactable NPC.

Sulu was also replaced by an Undine in the now-removed multiplayer mission "Terradome".

Apocrypha[edit | edit source]

Former Cryptic Studios lead writer Christine Thompson stated on Twitter that her intent was that Sulu was the commanding officer of Earth Spacedock and chief of staff to Fleet Admiral Jorel Quinn. This is not stated in-game.
