Why Star Trek Is Important
An autistic Dutch student has moved US talk show host Whoopi Goldberg to tears by telling her the story of how she unknowingly changed his life.
Goldberg appeared on the Dutch TV show College Tour yesterday, a TV program where students can ask guests any questions they want. But one audience member managed to catch the actress off guard."Youíre always saying that your roles donít have a big impact and I want to tell you that they have," the young man told Goldberg.
The student went on to tell Goldberg how discovering Star Trek: The Next Generation, in which The View host plays bartender Guinan, altered the course of his life
I've always said Trek has a positive effect, and this is a great example.
"Ö Times change, and so must IÖ we all change. When you think about it, we are all different people, all through our lives and thatís okay, thatís good! You've gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be."
