Former Star Trek star Will Wheaton boldly went where few have gone before when he spoke up against bullying.

The video was taken last year but has only gone viral in recent days.

Wheaton, who was part of a panel at Denver Comic-Con last summer, was asked by a young fan: “When you were a kid, were you called a nerd and, if so, how did you deal with it?”

The former Star Trek: The Next Generation's actor, who played Wesley Crusher, replied with a heartfelt, personal response that resulted in huge cheers from the audience.
