    Awesome! Congrats to the happy couple :)

    Kinda sad you had to post in PRSI, though. The world's still confused about the terms "equality" and "freedom"... :(

    Oh don't you worry- the bigots will find their way in here too. ;) But hey- hopefully we at least get 5 minutes of good feelings.

    I thought Takei looked a little short for a Stormtrooper. ;)

    Actually Sulu was kinda hot back in the day. Kirk would always say "warp. speed..ahead" but I was always distracted by Sulu's warp speed behind. :p

    Have you ever seen him in the lost Twilight Zone episode? It's great.

    I just wished he could have whooped some Sylar ass before he was offed by Adam.

    Oh damn, that sounded gay! :p

    I doubt we've seen the last of him. Remember that time means nothing in that show.

    Good point!

    Actually, what would have been cool is if right after their wedding, Takei and Altman rode off in the limo that had that NCC-1701 license plate that they used in season 1!

    The more exciting part was the Bachelor party. I'm glad the HS show did that whole thing, was pretty win.

    Edit: ARGH! The video announcer mispronounced his name. ._.

    Very cool. Sad they've had to wait for so long for such a happy day though.

    I'll let you know if my marriage is affected by this...

    Glad to see they've got their happily ever after. It's nice to see things like this nowadays with so much negative press about gay marriage going on. I'm proud to announce that I have yet to have any friends get divorced because they feel what they haven't isn't real anymore since gays can marry too. :p I'm still holding onto hope that Texas may one day join the fray. Yup. Come 3012, we may finally get civil unions for gay couples here.

    I think Dallas becoming a ski resort is a little more likely sadly.

    Anyway, happiness!!!! Woo-hoo for George and Brad!! :D

    Yep, I don't think the creators of Ski Dubai think Dallas would be a likely place for a ski run.

    LA and Miami maybe.

    Yeah, the Howard Stern bachelor party was awesome (wouldn't be so awesome if I could see it, glad it's just radio). I don't think Brad liked it too much though. George is awesome, I love it when he's on Stern's show.

    Congrats to Sulu and his partner - may they both "live long and prosper" which is what I feel may be the appropriate wish here.

    As Sulu, his voice, deep, commanding, extraordinarily authoritative and richly compelling are what I remember about him. Still, it's a great story and I'm delighted to see it given positive coverage.

    Cheers

    Okay.. I know this is going to sound really cheesy, but what the hell, eh!?

    Why couldn't they have had their wedding at ST: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton before it closed? I mean, how bloody fitting, no? :D

    BL.
