Patrick Stewart Surprises Fan With A Life Threatening Illness!

patrick stewart surprises fan illness

Sir Patrick Stewart is a knight in shining armor.

Dawn Garrigus, is an avid 11-year old Star Trek fan from Statesboro, Georgia. She also happens to suffer from mitochondrial disease, which is a life threatening illness.

Thanks to the the Make-A-Wish foundation, Dawn was not only able to go to Georgia's Dragon Con, she was able to attend a person meet and greet with THE Captain Picard!

According to Dawn, meeting Patrick was like meeting the captain of the Enterprise himself:

"I was shy at first, not sure what to say or talk about, but he kept talking to me. I felt like I was on the Enterprise talking to the captain. And suddenly, I was OK."

We're glad this stellar (and interstellar) meeting could take place.

Sir Ian McKellen Helps A Star Trek Fan Propose To His Boyfriend! You Shall Not Pass This Video Up!

sir ian mckellan helps star trek fan propose

This is so sweet!

South African director Brett Best wanted to have Sir Patrick Stewart help him in his proposal to his Star Trek fanatic boyfriend Khalid Shawwa.

Unfortunately, Patrick was unavailable. Fortunately, his bestie Sir Ian McKellen was there in his stead.

Here was Gandalf's message for Khalid:

"Khalid, I've got bad news for you. It's good news as well. But the bad news is Patrick Stewart is married. I married him. Well, no, I was the minister at the wedding. He's not available. The good news is that Brett is available. So, think it over. Do the right thing."

We hope Khalid did, and said "yes," and that the two will have a Next Generation of kids.

Ch-ch-check out the sweet proposal…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Zachary Quinto Will Guest Star On Season 4 Of Girls! Who Could He Possibly Be Playing?!

We luuurve this guy!

Star Trek and American Horror Story alum, Zachary Quinto has booked a guest spot on HBO's hit Girls!

The paparazzi caught Zachy and the show's creator/star Lena Dunham filming a scene in NYC yesterday…

And then, HBO confirmed his mystery role!

The network wouldn't spill any deets on the actor's involvement or character name — but last we left Hannah, she was accepted into the prestigious Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

SO perhaps the handsome star is helping her tie up loose ends in Bushwick!

We can't wait to see him on the small screen again!

Filed under: TV NewsBookzAmazingSchool

One in every 4 kids in America will grow up illiterate.

Let's let that sink in. That's not a fact from the early 1900s. That's from today. 2014.

Kids who can't read at their current grade level by 4th grade are apparently 400% more likely to drop out of high school! That's nuts!

Thank goodness for LeVar Burton!
