sulu got married

Over the weekend, actor/activist George Takei married his longtime partner Brad Altman in Los Angeles: George Takei marries longtime partner Brad Altman. The two were among the first couples to receive a marriage license in West Hollywood when California began granting licenses to gay couples in June.

At long last. The two were married Sunday in a multicultural ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum that featured a Buddhist priest, Native American wedding bands, a Japanese Koto harp and a bagpipe procession.

Believe it or not, wedding guests included fellow Star Trek stars Walter Koenig (Chekov) and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), who served as best man and best lady. Awesome. Congratulations to the newlyweds. Live long and prosper.
