When they get married in September, Mr. SuluGeorge Takei and Brad Altman are going to have wedding guests Trekkies can only dream of: Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, and Leonard Nimoy—Chekov, Uhura, and Spock respectively—are all going to be there. With some help from Bob Lee, who married his wife Starfleet style, I thought I'd send Takei and Altman some advice for the ultimate Star Trek wedding. Do you have any more advice for the happy couple?

No advice, but I was handily amused by Ian the Wedding Planner.

As long as there isn't a Romulan attack in the middle of the ceremony, and just in case, make sure there's duct tape to seal any phaser coolant leaks.

Don't invite any Borg! When you invite one, you've invited them all!

Star Wars fan here, so I can't help! I had lightsabers at my wedding and great John Williams music (oh, and a Jedi wedding dress!). You can't go wrong with that!
