A couple of weeks ago TrekMovie first reported that George Takei and his long-time partner Brad Altman were engaged to be married. Now People Magazine is reporting that Takei and Altman have set a date and picked a location, plus Takei is bringing on board his former Trek co-stars to join in on the day.

Takei tells People:
The best man is my colleague from Star Trek, Walter Koenig, who played Chekov, and the matron of honor is (Lt.) Uhura, Nichelle Nichols. And Leonard (Nimoy) and his wife Susan are on the (guest) list.
The pair will tie the knot September 14th in a formal affair at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. Details are still being working out, but People reports that they have settled on some details to “reflect their eclectic taste as well as their respective backgrounds” including Scottish bagpipes, a Mexican-American Buddhist minister officiating, and a fusion Japanese-Mexican cuisine for the dinner.

Takei will next be seen in the new Adam Sandler comedy You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, opening this Thursday.
