  11. We Got Our Noses On George Takei’s Punnily-Named Perfume

    Review

    You might have noticed that we don't really do a lot of perfume reviews on The Mary Sue. Or any. That's our sister site Styleite's thing. But when we were offered the chance to review Eau My, George Takei's foray into perfumery, we couldn't say no. Could you? So, after a quick primer from Styleite on how the heck you even review perfume in the first place, we went around the office with a sample and asked for opinions.

  12. George Takei Has a Perfume, And It’s Called “Eau My”

    Peanut Butter and Chocolate

    If you're wondering what George Takei's official perfume smells like, according to the description on Amazon there are notes of mandarin zest, Italian bergamot, night-blooming jasmine, white freesia petals, grated ginger, and fresh ozone. Oh, and once it dries you'll smell like "sensual woods" and "soft skin musk." Eau my, indeed.

  13. The Starship Enterprise Appears to be Surveying Earth From The Moon

    The Final Frontier

    This amazing photo was taken in broad daylight, and is interesting enough as a fascinating shot of the moon.  But it's doubly exciting because it looks like the Enterprise is drifting over the moon, and George Takei agrees, commenting on his facebook page,"My goodness, from this angle it looks like a certain starship I once flew." Unfortunately, Spock, Kirk, Sulu and company have not traveled back in time to our present day, and the shot in reality shows the International Space Station, photographed by Maximilian Teodorescu, a Romanian photographer.  Still, regardless of whether we're seeing the Enterprise or the ISS, the photograph and the space station photographed are amazing.

  14. George Takei’s Facebook “Ghostwriter” Apologizes

    KHAAAAAN

    Rick Polito, the comedy writer behind many of the posts on George Takei's Facebook page, feels bad about "letting the tribble out of the bag" on his ghostwriting involvement for the Star Trek actor's page. He apparently sent Takei and husband Brad Altman an apology. For those of you that didn't get this news: yes, the truth can be a terrible thing. George Takei is not the only person writing jokes for his Facebook page.

  15. George Takei Continues to Win at the Internet, Posts Hilarious Amazon Reviews

    Meanwhile, we continue to wish that he would be our cool adoptive grandpa.

    It’s a well-known fact that former Star Trek star George Takei loves the Internet. No, love is not strong enough a word to describe how Takei clearly feels. He adores the Internet. He knows all the latest memes and updates his Facebook page with them constantly. Heck, he even wrote an autobiography solely about his social media fame entitled Oh Myyy! (There Goes The Internet). So really, it's not a surprise that he's apparently taken up writing hilarious reviews of ridiculous products on Amazon. And before you ask -- yes, they're legit. He's got them cross posted on his Facebook.

  20. Star Trek Needs a Gay Character and Here’s How to Do It: One Trekkie’s Proposal

    Essay

    I love Star Trek. I don't think there's any franchise more central to my geek life. There's a lot of unreal universes out there that I enjoy learning about, but I'm sure there's none that I would more like to actually live in than the optimistic idea of our future that is Star Trek. The '60s-produced original series included a woman of color bridge officer who was cited as an inspiration by Mae Jemison (who became the first black woman in space) and Whoopi Goldberg (who ended up a Star Trek star herself). The more recent series' increased speculative-science focus led Stephen Hawking, on a visit to the Next Generation set, to say “I'm working on that” when passing the warp core prop. There's so much to feel positive about in Star Trek, and over the decades it's generally done a fine job of showing us how we could, and should, be. But there's one particular area of social justice that the franchise has failed to live up to its standards on, and it remains a blight on the series in my estimation. I'm talking about the fact that there has never, despite years of promises and false starts, been an openly gay or lesbian character in the canon Star Trek universe. But I have a proposal to change that. J.J. Abrams, if you're listening, I think you should make Sulu gay.
