Something's going on these days that just might involve Star Trek's space-time continuum by way of Syfy's Warehouse 13. Brent Spiner, aka Commander Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation, kicked off his run last week on Warehouse 13 as the a mysterious monk named Brother Adrian.
Brent Spiner, who played one of Star Trek's most beloved characters ever—the android Lt. Commander Data on The Next Generation—will soon guest-star (well, his voice, at least) in an episode of The Simpsons. And can you guess which kind of character he'll play?
True fact: Brent Spiner was brilliant as Star Trek: The Next Generation's child-like wide-eyed android Data. He's also pretty awesome in real life, too. But unfortunately, the actor suffered a bit from what most Trek actors before and after him also suffered from: that pesky Star Trek curse.
Love it or hate it, no one can argue that J.J. Abrams successfully rebooted Star Trek: TOS with his 2009 action-packed entry into the Trek-verse by infusing some much-needed fresh, green Vulcan blood into the tired franchise.
Alpha's ordinary people with extraordinary physical abilities are about to get some truly extraordinary guest actors, too, as stars from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Stargate Universe, Lost, Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Bionic Woman drop by the Monday night series.
We already knew that Brent Spiner had an odd sense of humor. But it was never odder than at a recent recent convention when the Star Trek actor shared the pitch-perfect Patrick Stewart impression that (almost) fooled his costar's wife!
To many Star Trek fans, Trek is a philosophy, a way of life, an ideal to aspire too or even a Bible of some kind. But to actor Brent Spiner, who portrayed one of Trek's most beloved characters, Lt. Commander Data, Star Trek is really just about entertainment.
