I clicked one of those content recommendation widgets, and wound up on an AARP article titled "9 Stars Who’ve Surprisingly Appeared on ‘Star Trek.’"  The fourth slide was Whoopi Golderberg, which...isn't really that surprising?  I mean, she was a recurring character on the series:
Inspired by Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura in the original TV series), Goldberg lobbied the producers of Star Trek: The Next Generation for a role. They came up with just the thing: The wise (and fashion-forward!) Guinan dispensed cocktails and counsel from shipboard bar Ten Forward in 28 episodes
What does all this have to do with AARP?  And what's the background of the author, Justin Kirkland?  And why did I wind up on that AARP page to begin with?

Those are rhetorical questions.
