He’s wed, Jim.

3 seconds after the last panel, a lizard man comes running down the isle. Guess who he attacks first.

George Takei is taking advantage of the recent lift of the ban on gay marriage in California to wed his long time first officer, Brad Altman. Let’s hope Brad chooses less life endangering attire.

When I was drawing Mr. Sulu, I realized that he looks like a cross between Yoko Ono and (current face) Micheal Jackson. Combine that with the fact that he’s a vibrant 71 years old and, Mr. Altman, you’ve got yourself a catch.

I wonder if they will toast their love with delicious Tranya.  Only if Balok is catering, one would assume. It’s more likely that Clint Howard would be working as a busboy for the catering company.

While you wait patiently for your invite to the Takei-Altman nuptuals, you should really watch this (thanks Dram).

  1. That homophobia video had me in tears the first time I saw it.

    Has Altman done anything notable in H-wood, or is he just another gay dinosaur? Not that it matters, but I was under the impression that celebrities are like European royalty, what with the not marrying below the class line thing (but not the inbreeding; kind of impossible in this case).

  2. I just watched TOS S1E03 "The Naked Time" last night. It featured a shirtless, sweaty, and surprisingly well-built Sulu buckling-his-swash about the decks of the Enterprise. No, Trek would not be the same without him.

  3. I always thought it was interesting that when star trek talked about homosexuality (at least on TNG and DS9) they did it with complete acceptance. No one asked why two women were in love. they were more concerned that the wormhole was destabalizing or something.

  4. It's true, Star Trek is pretty gay–set phasers to fabulous, as it were. But in deference to tried and true Star Trek fandom, and the integration of an open, gay component therein–that you could blaze new trails. A Pink-Shirt, just as a for-instance. You'd get sent on an Away Emission, and sha'zam! -You'd get spirited away by a rampaging gang of glittery aliens with monster packages. Uhura: "Oh no they didn't!" And, dude, gilded-prostate for the Tranya, mention.

  5. Well, when you've got a destabilized wormhole on one hand, a pissed off Klingon ambassador on the other hand, and a gay crew member on the gripping hand, it kind of gets your priorities in order. Of course the tough one there is which is more time sensitive, the wormhole, or the Klingon.

    Bonus props for the comic title. Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor not a chaplain! Not that you'd probably see a chaplain at a gay wedding, being the uptight hypocritical bastards that they are.

  6. I was about to say that I agreed, but I actually think it stands for "queen."

    Anyway, I hated Q–not for being queer or a queen–but for being a wretched plot device!

  7. If I'd been really good, I would have checked my gender-neutral pronouns and gone with "That's what ze (or "ve" or "ey") said," but that would have confused the joyful immaturity of my comment!

  8. Oh, but he was so fun to watch! …at first anyhow. By the time they got to the series finale of TNG it had gotten old. When they brought him back for DS9 I was not impressed, and when they brought him back again for Voyager in "Death Wish" I was kind of hoping he would die after all.

  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the blatently non-PC remark…I can't get the mental images out of my head now, and I keep seeing Uhura swinging around in her chair, taking the comm piece from her ear with one hand and doing a big ole' snap with the other. Uh huh.
    One wonders…when she was doing her little dance in ST-V, might it have been improved with a troupe of drag queens backing her up, a la "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?" Just wondering.

  10. clackamas walmart in portland oregon frames people as pedo's so they can murder them and get away with it, they are hideing a man named eric carlson, he worked there for over a year around mid 2007 and mid 2008, he died his hair black and got a new identity from his friends in authority and now goes by the name gashel, last name unknown by me.
