Star Trek may just be a TV show (and movies, books, etc) but it can also affect people’s lives. An example of that came last week on a Dutch TV show interviewing former TNG star Whoopi Goldberg where the actress met an autistic fan who says she and Star Trek helped him lead a productive and social life. Watch the emotional moment below.
Autistic Fan Thanks Whoopi For Her Role On Star Trek Changing His Life
Last Friday Whoopi Goldberg was a guest on the Dutch TV show College Tour. During the program shot in Amsterdam, Goldberg answered a question about what Star Trek meant to her. Goldberg also heard from an autistic man how much her role of Guinan on Star Trek: The Next Generation meant to him and how Star Trek led to him learning how to lead a productive and social life. It is a very touch moment and you can watch that clip below.
