Captain, Sir! Congratulations to Patrick Stewart, on the Queen's New Year's List to be knighted for his contributions to drama. He'll officially be Sir Patrick Stewart. Also on the list: Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.

Great pic for the occasion. I wonder why Peter Jackson isn't getting as much attention--he's easily as popular now as Stewart.

Is it a little premature to Knight Jackson? Stewart has been contributing to theater for decades, but Jackson star only rose in the 2000s. Hmmm...

Happy New Year!

Thanks--I wondered if anyone was going to catch the significance of Picard's dress uniform!

I don't know much about Jackson, but he is an Aussie, so maybe that has something to do with it.

And happy new year to you, too!
