Star Trek's Mr Sulu says he will wed his longtime partner and business manager, Brad Altman, now that the California Supreme Court has legalized same-sex marriage.

Actor George Takei, the original Mr. Sulu on the T-V show, says on his website that he and Altman have shared their lives for more than 21 years and are "overjoyed" to be able to legally marry.

The 71-year-old Takei writes: "No more 'separate but equal.' No more second-class citizenship ... Brad and I are going to be married as full citizens of our state."

Takei, who also had a recurring role on NBC's "Heroes" last year, says he and Altman are planning the details of their wedding.
