Wait, Star Trek's Brent Spiner has a mystery role in Star Wars: Rebels?

It might not be exactly what we were expecting, but it sounds like we’ll definitely have a bit of Star Wars/Star Trek synergy soon.

Brent Spiner, best known to sci-fi fans for his lengthy stint on Star Trek: The Next Generation as Data, has apparently signed on for Disney XD’s upcoming Star Wars: Rebels animated series. The news broke at the Gallifrey 1 Convention in Los Angeles, where Spiner was a guest on the Young Justice panel.

Here’s the tidbit, via a reporter on the scene:

Though he’s spent most of his professional career kicking around Star Trek, it wouldn’t be the first time Spiner jumped into the voice-work waters. He’s also showcased his talents on Robot Chicken, Family Guy, the Avengers cartoon and the aforementioned Young Justice series.

But the real question we have is who the heck Spiner is playing on Rebels? What do you think, friend or foe?
