Guinan - Brown-skinned alien who
appeared on the sci-fi series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/SYN/1987-94.
Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) was a mysterious female alien who
operated the recreational level lounge called "Ten Forward"
aboard the federation starship USS Enterprise. Her race was
destroyed and sent to wander the galaxy when the Borg, a race of
cyborgs, attacked her planet. Her rare intuitive powers and
listening abilities were appreciated by all members of the crew
especially, Jean Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), the Captain of
the Enterprise. Her wardrobe included an unusual halo like
headdress which resembled a plate wrapped in a cloth. Guinan's
character was explored in the two-part episode No. 126 & 127
