LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor George Takei, best known for playing Mr. Sulu on "Star Trek," says he plans to wed his longtime partner now that the California Supreme Court has overturned a state ban on gay marriage.

Takei, 71, told Reuters on Monday that he and Brad Altman, his 54-year-old business manager, are going through the "delicious process" of planning their nuptials.

"There's no tradition in terms of same-sex marriage. We are designing and shaping our own wedding in our own way, so it's going to be singular and unique," added Takei, who first made his wedding plans known on his website during the weekend.

Add George Takei to the list of heroes who stand up against discrimination not just for themselves but for those who need someone to stand for them. The more exposure the GLBT community gets the more people are going to realize that we are just like them with only one difference that should not concern them.

Guess who is going to be the best man?

It would be a real scream if Schatner did the ceremony, lol! He was the captain, right?

They'd be better off with Jean-Luc. Shatner is somewhat estranged from the family.

Shatner is not even on the guest list.

Strange, George did go to his roast so I thought maybe things were improving.
