Patrick Stewart to be Knighted

Star Trek's very own, Patrick Stewart is getting honored with knighthood by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and thus adding the title of "Sir" to his name. The honorific will become official during a New Year's ceremony from the Queen held in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Knighthood is considered the highest honor for British citizens to "recognize service and achievement in all fields."

Patrick Stewart, 69, played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and related films. He was also Charles Xavier in the X-Men films, CIA boss Avery in American Dad, and done voice work for plenty of video games.

Congratulations to Sir Patrick Stewart.
