    Yes, it finally happened...so does this give him a lot more cred in England than before? Has Star Trek ever had anyone who has been knighted on the show before?? So can we start with the Excalibur jokes now? ;)

    Thoroughly deserved. I doubt his role on Star Trek had anything to do with the decision though.

    I don't know how to link to the news item on TrekToday. Someone smarter than me will do it no doubt. Congrats to a national treasure.

    Congratulations to Sir Patrick for this much deserved honour and what a lovely tribute he made on its receipt:

    When asked what had sparked his interest in acting, Sir Patrick replied: ''When I leave here I will be going to a luncheon that has been arranged and sitting on my right will be a man called Cecil Dormand who was my English teacher when I was a child.

    ''Although many people in my life and career have had great influence on me, without this one man, none of it would have happened.

    ''Because he was the one that put a copy of Shakespeare in my hand, he was the one who told me it was a play and not a dramatic poem, he was the one who said 'now get up on your feet and perform, this is a play, it's life'.

    ''He was the one who said when I was leaving the secondary modern 'have you ever thought of doing this as a profession?'.

    ''He put me in a play with adults, so I owe literally everything to this man.''

    It's about time he was actually knighted. His first film role was playing the knight Leondegrance of Camilliard.(spelling?)
