Mayor Pete Buttigieg filled in as guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (March 12) and lived out his Star Trek super-fan dreams!
The former candidate for President of the United States, who is a lifelong Star Trek fan, received a Star Trek: The Next Generation television script and signed photo from his special guest Sir Patrick Stewart, who plays Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek franchise.
“This will hold a place of pride,” Buttigieg said as Stewart signed the script’s cover.
Mayor Pete also participated in a Star Trek trivia contest with Sir Patrick called “Who’s the Captain Now?” hosted by surprise guest LeVar Burton, who played Chief Engineer Geordi LaForge on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Pete is a pretty big Star Trek fan, so the quiz ended up being actually quite neck-and-neck.
