Patrick Stewart Faces Off Against Superfan Pete Buttigieg In 'Star Trek' Quiz! (Video)

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.
