Not literally; the Committee on Small Body Nomenclature of the International Astronomical Union approved a suggestion from astronomer Tom H. Burbine to rename asteroid 1994 GT9 to 7307 Takei. The man himself comments:
“I am now a heavenly body,” Takei said Tuesday, laughing. “I found out about it yesterday … I was blown away. It came out of the clear, blue sky — just like an asteroid.”

George Takei, Mr. Hikaru Sulu of Star Trek, came out in Frontiers, a L.A. magazine that covers the gay and lesbian community:
“The world has changed from when I was a young teen feeling ashamed for being gay,” he said. “The issue of gay marriage is now a political issue. That would have been unthinkable when I was young.”
The 68-year-old actor said he considers himself as “having been out for quite some time.” Takei and his partner, Brad Altman, have been together for 18 years.
