Whoopi Goldberg will return to the Star Trek Universe in second season of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ on CBS All Access

Whoopi Goldberg and Patrick Stewart on the set of Star Trek: The Next Generation

While visiting the set of the daytime talk show The View, it was with a surprise to Whoopi Goldberg, the show’s co-host, to hear Sir Patrick Stewart offer a formal invitation to return to the Star Trek universe. She will be reprising her role as Guinan, the lovable bartender of Ten Forward, in the second season of Star Trek: Picard only on CBS All Access. Here is a video of the announcement from Wednesday morning’s broadcast of The View.

Guinan is a fan favorite character who first showed up in second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and has made reoccurring appearances through the remainder of the series’ seven season run, in addition to appearing in two of the movie adaptations.

The last time Whoopi Goldberg had appeared on screen in the role of Guinan was in the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis. Since the very beginning of the original television broadcast of The Next Generation, she has been an avid supporter of the series and has a genuine affection for the Star Trek universe. Her reaction to receiving the formal invitation to return for more episodes is authentic and true. It is great opportunity to know she was welcomed aboard by the ship’s captain.
