Star Trek alum George Takei and his husband, Brad Altman, will make television history as the first gay couple to compete on The Newlywed Game, GSN announced.

"What we want is to display the normality and the joy of having a happy union," Takei said, who married Altman last September. "To be included in something we never felt we'd be included in is very satisfying."
