OMG! Captain Picard actually saves lives!
No, not with his amazing cotton candy mustache!
In this case, it was Sir Patrick Stewart's work with Refuge and Amnesty International that gave one young woman a fighting chance.
Patrick's speech on violence against women gave Star Trek fan Heather Skye the courage to survive her own domestic horror!
And thanks to a sci-fi convention, Heather actually got the chance to thank the X-Men: Days Of Future Past star in person! When he hugged her, Sir Patrick said:
"You never have to go through that again, you're safe now."
Awww! See the entire emotional moment …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
