Brent Spiner, the actor who memorably played Data on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and in subsequent theatrical films, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of "Alphas," Syfy announced Tuesday.
Appearing in the September 12 episode "Blind Spot," Spiner heads up an impressive list of geek-friendly guests set to perform on the cable hit, which stars David Strathairn as a psychiatrist guiding an elite, secretive team of government operatives who have a neurological condition that gives them special abilities.
Crossover alert! On August 15, Lindsay Wagner, a.k.a. the Bionic Woman, will reprise her recent "Warehouse 13" guest role Dr. Vanessa Calder.
"Firefly" alert! Summer Glau appears in the August 22 episode "Catch and Release."
Other upcoming guests include Alaina Huffman ("Stargate Universe"), Garret Dillahunt ("Raising Hope") and Peter Wingfield ("Caprica"). Additionally, "Lost" alum Rebecca Mader also appears in the September 12 episode along with Spiner.
All of this news pleases us.
"Alphas" airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. on Syfy.
