No Show, or Wasn't Invited? Beam Him Up

. Thursday, October 23

As a kid, faithfully planted in front of the TV for every episode of the original Star Trek series, it never crossed my mind that adults, famous adults, would act as silly as ...well, kids.  Another childhood ideal shot to hell. This time, Captain Kirk (Shatner) is saying that he was never invited to Sulu's (Takei) wedding, and that he must be sick, psychotic for holding a long time grudge that, for the life of him, he can't remember why that would be. Uhura (Nichols) and Chekov (Koenig) showed up just fine, and Sulu said Kirk was invited but never RSVP'd. With the tables turned right back at him, the ol' Captain decided he was not happy with Sulu coming out of the closet: "Who cares? Be gay. Don't be gay. That's up to you, George." It's beginning to sound like the Enterprise is turning into a nursing home for the demented, still going where no man has gone before.
