Forward Thinking

“Forward Thinking” celebrates Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg). More specifically, we’re celebrating a crucial element of the much loved character — her hats! They are a crucialy and memorable aspect of Guinan! The hat didn’t appear in the latest episode of Picard, “Watcher”. Fans of Star Trek The Next Generation will be delighted to see the return of the much loved El-Aurian. SciFiPulse is, too!

 

Forward Thinking

 

A great big dome,

but on top flat,

planets could rest

on Guinan’s hat!

 

It is a shape

not seen before,

impossible

to just ignore . . .

 

The colours too

are all top grade,

each one its own

unique bright shade

 

Perhaps best known

for their vast size,

brims wider than

The Enterprise!

 

The endless space,

that sloped incline,

timeless forward

thinking design!

We ran a feature this week on the “new” Guinan (Ito Aghayere), and what we thought of the casting. It seems Guinan will have a big role in Season Two of Picard. We’re hoping that she might even have a big confrontation with Q (John De Lancie), at some point. The two have a bit of a history. If you’re a trekkie you might also enjoy “Q the Music,” a previous poem. See you next week, readers!
