She was the Starship Enterprise's lead drink-slinger, confidante and friend to crew members of all ranks on Star Trek: The Next Generation. But she was so much more than an opulent-hat-wearing bartendress. Thanks for listening, Guinan!

Let's take a moment - for no reason in particular - to remember how awesome Whoopi Goldberg's Guinan was. I offer you 'Five from Ten Forward':

She would listen to anyone, no matter how annoying they were.

She could totally out-phaser Worf.

They made an action figure out of her.

She ran Ten Forward. You know she liked to party.

Speaks for itself.

We raise a glass to you, lady. Aside from providing Picard and Company with the booze needed to deal with things like Borg/Cardassians/Wesley Crusher, your comforting uselessness was always a welcome addition to the Enterprise.

Happy Weekend, Gang!
