Openly gay "Star Trek" alum George Takei stopped by "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen this week to chat with the Bravo exec about a number of issues affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

And also, to play a little game that Cohen likes to call "Set Gaysers To Yum."

The game involved Takei going through each character on the original "Star Trek" and rating each of them on a 1-10 scale of how gay they may or may not have been. Watch the clip above to find out Takei's responses -- including one co-star that he brands with a resounding "10."

Takei also took some time to discuss an important issue affecting the international LGBT community -- the institutionalized anti-gay violence and legislation currently plaguing the Russian landscape. Takei thinks we need to move the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics elsewhere -- check out the clip below to find out where and why.
