Now to the Star Trek Connection for Queen Elizabeth II. in 2010 Sir Patrick Stewart was Knighted by the Queen in Buckingham Palace at a Star Trek Convention in Burbank a few years later Sir Patrick Stewart brought up the subject about his knighting by the queen when he saw the photo the next day online, he knew some Trekkie out there would change it with a bat’leth it didn’t take long.
It didn’t take fans long to replace the Septer with the Klingon weapon.
what most know she actually loved the Original Series of Star Trek and watched on the tele. (The British Slang for television) She also had since of humor and was probably very amused when someone showed her that very photo.
Also, her death being on Star Trek Day which is September 8th the day Star Trek First went on the air on Television September 8th, 1966.
These photos of the Queen are also edited by fans to make them appear more trek like, but very little editing needed to be done.
