Wil Wheaton and LeVar Burton Beam Up to Big Bang Theory
Want a Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion? CBS’s The Big Bang Theory will make it so Nov. 8. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hit sitcom that revolves around the lives and loves of a group of scientists will feature a pair of TNG alums on an upcoming episode.
Both Wil Wheaton and LeVar Burton have appeared on the series in previous episodes, with Wheaton becoming a fairly big part of the story over the past few seasons. The actors, ho played Wesley Crusher and Geordi La Forge respectively, will appear on a Star Trek-themed episode of Sheldon’s video podcast Fun With Flags. This will be a big step in the Sheldon/Wheaton relationship which had a rocky start, but got patched up last season as Sheldon’s animosity moved to Data himself, Brent Spiner.
The episode of Big Bang Theory premieres Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
