'Trek' cast to reunite on 'Family Guy'
by James Hibberd

The cast of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is reuniting for an
episode of "Family Guy," a mash-up made in geek heaven that Fox will
air next month.

In the episode titled “Not All Dogs Go to Heaven,” the "Next Gen" crew
(Patrick Stewart, Levar Burton, Gates McFadden, Michael Dorn, Wil
Wheaton, Denise Crosby, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner and Jonathan
Frakes) will provide guest voices as the Griffin family heads to the
annual Quahog “Trek” convention.

"Stewie blows a fuse when he doesn’t get a chance to ask his favorite
'Star Trek: The Next Generation' cast members any questions," reads
the logline. "He devises a plan, builds a transporter and beams the
entire cast to his bedroom so they can spend a fun-filled day together
in Quahog."

A member of the "Trek" cast let some of this news slip into the
blogsphere awhile back, but Fox has now confirmed, announced the cast
and set a March 29 airdate.

In other Fox-fanboy news, the network is hinting that a two-part
episode of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" will be a
"game-changing" episode, which is often (but not always) shorthand for
"somebody dies."

The description:

“Today is the Day, Part 1 of 2”:  In the first part of a game-changing
two-part installment, Jesse (guest star Stephanie Jacobsen) flashes
back to a life-altering mission aboard her submarine, the Jimmy
Carter. Meanwhile, Sarah (Lena Headey) and John (Thomas Dekker) decide
they can’t continue living in their house and make plans to leave.

Okay, so a flashback while making plans to leave a house doesn't
exactly sound like riveting drama. But here's part two:

“Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter, Part 2 of 2”
The exciting two-parter continues as Jesse’s submarine mission in the
future takes a fatal turn that has unforeseen consequences for John,
Sarah and Derek (Brian Austin Green) in the present. Also, Sarah deals
with Cameron, who has become a liability, and John steps up and makes
a life-or-death choice.
