Spectacular things happen when geeks marry. Trekkers Kim Henderson and Gordon Florence, a couple from Breightmet in England, married on Saturday, and they did so in unforgettable Star Trek fashion. They wore The Next Generation/Insurrection-style uniforms, while their guests wore a variety of Trek costumes and flashed the Vulcan greeting. Even the newlyweds' 7-month-old baby Jadzia wore matching ceremonial whites.

"It's all a bit of fun getting to dress up in the different costumes," Henderson told The Bolton News. "I've always known I wanted a Star Trek themed wedding since I was a lot younger. If anything, I wanted to get married at Star Trek the Experience at the Hilton in Las Vegas. I wanted to get married on the replica of the Bridge of the Enterprise. This is great, though, with lots of our guests dressed as Star Trek characters or in their favourite characters costumes."

The newlyweds met at a Comic-Con Manchester two years ago. Henderson walked down the aisle carrying a regulation phaser rifle along with her bouquet. The couple are members of Manchester Starfleet and the fan group joined the festivities.
