Perhaps not with the fanfare of the Family Guy forays into the Star Wars universe, Seth McFarlane is reuniting the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation onto Family Guy for an upcoming episode. After missing his chance to ask a question of the cast at the Quahog Trek convention, Stewie builds a transporter and kidnaps the cast – and takes them to the drive-thru and bowling, according to this preview and interview clip on FOX. Executive producer David Goodman talks up his favorite bits on io9. The episode, titled ‘Not All Dogs Go To Heaven’, airs on Sunday, March 29, 9 PM (ET/PT), guest starring Patrick Stewart, Levar Burton, Gates McFadden, Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton, Denise Crosby, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner and Jonathan Frakes.

Wil Wheaton on Star Wars. As you might expect, it’s not always the most positive take on the saga, but that’s the nature of these things, isn’t it?
We love Star Wars because, when viewed from our complicated adult lives through the lens of childhood nostalgia, we see a simpler, happier time, and recall this phenomenon that was an integral part of our lives. Remember what it was like to see the Death Star blow up the first time? Remember how you just couldn’t believe it that they froze Han Solo? If you were young enough at the time, will you admit that you thought the Ewoks were actually kind of funny and cool? (I will.) And how much did you run around the woods near your house, pretending to be on a speeder bike? See, it’s more than a movie; it’s culture.

Wil Wheaton on the five books every geek should read. I’m only one for five here*, but to each their own. (via SF Signal)
* I think The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is kind of overrated. Don’t stone me.
