Patrick Stewart plays along with Trek fans, utters Picard's most famous line

Patrick Stewart, in addition to being a knight, is also a scholar, a gentleman and still captain of the Enterprise. 

It's rare that video content only a few seconds long can elicit a "YES!" out of me. This is one such example.

While at the offices of Twitter, Sir Patrick deigned the workers worthy enough to be be his makeshift ensigns, if only for a brief, spectacular moment.

What must it have been like to be one of those employees? Did they pinch themselves? Did they have to say, "Computer - end program" just to be sure they weren't on the holodeck?

I know that I would have to immediately spend some time in my ready room, sipping some Earl Grey (hot, naturally) just to calm down.

The takeaway, of course, is that, regardless of who the best captain of the Enterprise may be, Sir Patrick is unquestionably the best captain of the U.S.S. Twitter.
