George Takei, Sulu From 'Star Trek,' to Marry Partner in California

George Takei, the original Sulu from "Star Trek," announced over the weekend that he and his longtime partner Brad Altman will tie the knot this summer.

The announcement comes on the heels of the California Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage is legal there.

"Our California dream is reality," he wrote on his Web site. "At long last, the barrier to full marriage rights for same-sex couples has been torn down."

Takei, who also had a role on "Heroes" last year, first came out in 2005 in order to talk against a veto by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of a same-sex marriage law.

Ellen DeGeneres and girlfriend Portia de Rossi are also planning to wed now that same-sex marriage is legal in California.
