'Big Bang Theory' Goes Full 'Star Trek' in New Clip (Video)
CBS' The Big Bang Theory is going to the final frontier: Bakersfield.
In Thursday's episode, titled "The Bakersfield Expedition," Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj head to Bakersfield Comic-Con -- in Star Trek: The Next Generation costumes. While they're away, Penny, Bernadette and Amy investigate their final frontier: the comic book shop.
This marks the latest Star Trek encounter for the series about the lovable geeks and their lady friends, with Leonard Nimoy lending his voice for an episode last season, among the show's notable hat tips to the franchise.
The Thursday night comedy is fresh off its best ratings yet, most recently eclipsing previous highs in total viewers and adults 18-49.
Watch the clip, below, and hit the comments with who does Star Trek the best. The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
