George Takei and partner plan to wed in September

WASHINGTON - George Takei, best known for playing Sulu on "Star Trek," will never forget the first time he saw Brad Altman, the man he plans to marry, more than two decades ago.

They were working out in a running club and he couldn't take his eyes off Altman, who had a "lean, tightly muscled" body, the 71-year-old actor told AP Radio in an interview.

Takei said he asked Altman to help him train for a marathon, they fell in love, and now they've been living together for 21 years.

Altman said he proposed by getting down on one knee in their kitchen while Takei was eating a sandwich after seeing on TV that the California Supreme Court had legalized same-sex marriage. It surprised Takei, who thought he would be the one who popped the question.

They bought each other turquoise and silver wedding rings.

Zen Master. Great to See Ya!!!!!

Yeah, it's Star Wars but somehow I think two universes overlap, just a little bit. :D


Plus, it was too great a line not to repeat. Maybe Han Sulu is out there somewhere?

When he went nuts and slicked his chest up for that sword-fighting episode - I totally knew he was gay even if I saw it in the reruns. Apparently he's also a chicken hawk or a gay cougar or whatever you call it when you take up with somebody 25 years your junior and you aren't a CEO.

Ummm, then I guess Takei/Sulu could always say, before a tryst: "I'm about to go where no man has--" Oh, nevermind...:p

I'm not so sure about that. I remember his wife drowning and some weird 911 call a few years back.

Same here. I think I recall seeing him with a much younger blonde woman recently (this would be after the drowning incident).

Set phasers to bugger.

No? Fine. Here's an actual lne from a Star Trek episode (slightly altered to fit the thread):

"He gave me what could be considered a very passionate kiss in the torpedo bay."

Ew. I'm sorry I went there.

You non-coast folk are such rubes.

"Going where many a man has gone before", would have been my take on Takei.

Such donkeys.:rolleyes:

Shatner is not gay...
However, I do recall a recent news article about him NOT being invited to Takei's ceremony.

I guess he should have let Sulu take the con a little more often! :D
