"Star Trek" icon Sir Patrick Stewart dedicated his knighthood to his childhood school teacher after receiving the prestigious honor from British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. The Hollywood veteran attended a special ceremony at London's Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, June 2 when he officially became a 'Sir'.

And the 69 year old insists he owes "literally everything" to his secondary school mentor Cecil Dormand, who encouraged him to pursue a career in acting. He says, "Although many people in my life and career have had a great influence on me, without this one man, none of it would have happened."

Stewart, who began his career on stage before finding fame in the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series in the late 1980s, was saluted for his 50-year acting achievements in the Queen's New Year's Honors at the beginning of 2010.
