This is so great! Such a sweet moment between Whoopi and this man on the spectrum.

Whoopi Goldberg has inspired many people — especially with her role in Star Trek. Though the role was a very big deal to her, Goldberg didn’t realize how much of an impact it has made on others  — especially Martin, a young man who was diagnosed with mild autism.

Martin speaks to Goldberg about the impact her role as Guinan has had on him. Discovering Star Trek at the age of 2, Martin joined their fan club where he learned how to cope socially with difficult things. Watch this emotional yet inspiring exchange that left Goldberg speechless!
