This supercut features Captain Picard singing his own Trek-ified version of Let It Snow. You have to watch the whole thing because not only do Riker, Worf and Geordi get in on the action, but stupid, smiling Wesley gets put in his place. Watch to the end. It’s worth it!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard is a calming presence. Even when he’s flustered or stressed, he exudes confidence. He’s the Star Trek Captain who I wouldn’t hesitate to follow and I wouldn’t mind having on my bed. Quilter Candy Coated made this impressive queen-sized quilt featuring Patrick Stewart in his most recognizable role, and it’s lovely. The back of the design features Picard’s red uniform and the Delta Shield. She worked on it for over four months and made it as a wedding present. I hope she said “Engage” every time she fired up her sewing machine.

Patrick Stewart. I am running out of ways to express the awesome of this man. He is the best thing on the internet. Better than catz with laser beams. Better than bacon. Don’t believe me? Check out this little video where he demonstrates the art of the quadruple take and you’ll agree. Patrick Stewart wins the internet.

Oh, Captain! My Captain! I had no clue Picard could actually loosen up from time to time and share a laugh with a Klingon. Speaking of which, since when did Klingons start laughing? Anyway, check out this fun gag reel from season four of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Enjoy!

Sir Patrick Stewart has discovered another real-world location named for one of the fictional characters that he’s played. First it was Xavier High School and now Picard, a store that seems to sell asparagus. Between these shots and the one of Stewart with a cotton candy mustache, he’s proving quite the entertainer in his off time.

In the following video, Sir Patrick Stewart gives further proof that he’s just an incredible guy. In response to a fan’s question at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, Stewart gave a very heartfelt and personal answer. He talked about how domestic violence and PTSD affected his life growing up. He even gave the woman who asked the question a big hug as the crowd cheered.

Do you want to own a Star Trek: The Next Generation prop replica that is sure to be noticed? Then you need a Ressikan flute!

Captain Picard played the instrument in the episode “The Inner Light,” and this replica is a 1:1 scale copy. It’s handcrafted by writer of the show Morgan Grendel and comes in a case ready for display. It doesn’t seem to be playable, so it’s mostly just for show. You could walk around pretending to play it though, no one would judge you!

Watch a clip after the break showing the flute in the series.

The torch relay has slowly made its way across Europe for the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in London this Friday. It’s passed between many hands, not the least of which include Matt Smith and Patrick Stewart. Yes, apparently those two can do anything. Stewart has been a part of amazing television shows and movies, but it sounds like the experience of carrying the torch tops them all:

“I didn’t realize how much it meant until it started,” he said. “I didn’t realize until we gathered here at the school this morning and then went out in the bus and saw the thousands of people on the streets. The sense of exhilaration that that brought. And the evident pleasure in everyone who was witnessing it and feeling that they were sharing in something extraordinary, which they are.”

Watch the Captain and the Doctor in action after the break.

After an ambitious Kickstarter campaign, Logan Kugler recently realized his dream of sending action figures of Kirk, Picard, and a few chosen Star Trek crew members to the edge of space via a high-altitude balloon. The journey was captured on film for the world to see, although a final edit of the voyage is still in the works. In the meantime, you can hit the jump to check out a Discovery Channel segment which followed the launch and recovery efforts.
