Remember That Time Stephen Hawking Was on Star Trek?

IGN

Stephen Hawking, the world-famous physicist and best-selling author known for his great mind as well as his self-determination in overcoming his physical disabilities, has died at age 76. His passing is a loss to the world of science to be sure, but Hawking was also one of the most famous fans to ever live. And his love for pop-culture sometimes combined with his celebrity to great effect, leading to several memorable cameos and guest appearances on a variety of TV shows including The Simpsons, Futurama and The Big Bang Theory. But it was his turn on Star Trek: The Next Generation that is perhaps his most touching, and appropriate, now that he has died.

The story is too old to be commented.
