Trekkies, rejoice! It looks like Guinan will be returning to the Star Trek universe.

The beloved El-Aurian bar hostess played by Whoopi Goldberg was a recurring character who appeared on the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation and the films, Star Trek Generations and Star Trek: Nemesis.



Goldberg can now add Star Trek: Picard, which debuted Thursday on CBS Access, to the list.

Patrick Stewart was a guest on The View on Wednesday and personally invited the show's co-host to join the second season of Picard.

By the look of her face, the actress was beaming up.

The ask occurred when Stewart, who plays the eponymous retired admiral, interrupted co-host Joy Behar to make his surprise announcement.

"I'm here with a formal invitation, and it's for you, Whoopi."
"Alex Kurtzman, who is the senior executive producer of 'Star Trek: Picard', and all his colleagues, of which I am one, want to invite you into the second season."

The surprised TV personality hugged her future co-star as the studio audience cheered over the exciting news.

Twitter rejoiced as well.


Her emotional response clearly indicated how special her involvement in the franchise has been.

"I've said this on the show before, but 'Star Trek' was one of the great experiences, from the beginning to the end. I had the best, best, best time ever."


Stewart said he was looking forward to working with Goldberg again.

"It was wonderful having you and we cannot wait to have you with us again one more time."


Goldberg's cohorts pointed out her emotional reaction as the actress sat speechless and held back tears.

Meghan McCain commented about Goldberg's sentimental reaction.

"It never happens. It's very rare."



Stewart's character, Jean-Luc Picard – captain of the starship USS EnterpriseEnterprise (NCC-1701-D) – has appeared in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG), an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; and in the feature films Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), and Star Trek: Insurrection (1998).

He was last seen in Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002.

When asked how Stewart was able to revisit a character 18 years later, he said:

"It's easy…. Picard has aged 18 years, fictionally, and Patrick Stewart has aged 18 years actually."
"And I don't have to work at it because it's just me, it's who I am now!"
"We have such a team of writers on this show, it's astonishing, and I wanted to show that Picard's world had changed because Patrick's world has certainly changed, and we are no longer now living in the same kind of society we lived in 18 years ago."

Go Whoopi!

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
