Forget Capt. Picard, it's Sir Picard now for Patrick Stewart



Patrick-stewart Star Trek's Patrick Stewart is going to be Sir Patrick Stewart. The 69-year-old thespian is set to be knighted by the Queen of England, according to the British media.

"Senior sources said the Queen was an admirer of the famously bald star," the Daily Record reports.

Though Stewart will probably be best remembered for Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran 1987 to 1994, he shined in a few other '80s classics including L.A. Stories, Code Name: Emerald and Dune. ("Mood's a thing for cattle and loveplay, not fighting!")

But I still worship Stewart for 1981's Excalibur, where he played "Leondegrance." (Yeah, had to look up the spelling on that sucker!) He even gets the signature line: "The boy drew the sword. If a boy has been chosen, a boy shall be King!"

Let's see him use that line on the Queen.
