'SULU' TAKEI WEDS BF

George Takei and long time BF Brad Altman tied the knot yesterday.

Takei, Star Trek's helmsman Sulu, and Altman were married at the Japanese American National Museum.

The couple who have been together 21 years wrote their own vows.

"We have a relationship that's been stronger and longer-lived than some of our straight friends, and yet we were not equal," Takei told Associated Press.

"What this does is give us that dignity; being part of the American system and being whole. We're making the American system whole as well, as America is becoming more equal."

Guests included Star Trek costars Walter Koening and Nichelle Nichols who served as best man and woman.

Takei and Altman plan to honeymoon Earth-side in Peru and Argentina.
