Actor George Takei may not be playing Star Trek's Hikaru Sulu again, but he has donned his old Starfleet uniform to get same-sex couples to take notice on how to count themselves in the 2010 census. Appearing with long-time partner Brad Altman, himself in an attention-grabbing foil hat, Takei shows same-sex couples how to fill out the census forms to make sure that their relationship counts.

Takei revealed his orientation in a 2005 issue of Frontiers magazine, confirming his not-so-secret relationship with Altman. Takei and Altman eventually wed in 2008, during the small window of time in which California was legally recognizing same-sex marriages. You can read more information about the 2010 U.S. census on the official site.
