Patrick Stewart to become, Sir Patrick

It seems Captain Picard, or really actor Patrick Stewart is going to go where no Starfleet captain has gone before – become a knight.  The Queen of England seems to be a big fan of Patrick’s and it seems he will become Sir Patrick and be knighted in early 2010.  This is quite an honor and I’m sure Patrick is quite thrilled.  He will be joining a few other actors that have been knighted over the years, such as Sean Connery and Ian McKellen.  I’m certain an honorable man like Patrick will fit in perfectly with the knights that have come before him.  Very cool news for him and his fans too.
