Seems Star Wars and Star Trek are not only united through J.J. Abrams, but Mark Hamill and George Takei as well.
For the first time, the pair will be seen together (and actually the first time they have met) on the season finale of the ABC television show, The Neighbors.
The episode sees the aliens' homeplanet of Zabvron sent out a distress call from George Takei, who plays the Grandpa, and Mark Hamill, playing Commandant Bill.
An actor from the series, Tim Jo, tweeted the following image of himself with George Takei and Mark Hamill.
You can catch the episode of The Neighbors Wednesday March 26th at 8:30pm ET on ABC.
After Debbie and Marty frantically try to make sense of the weird neighbors -- very European? A cult? Amish athletes? -- they discover that the entire Hidden Hills community is comprised of aliens from the planet Zabvron. Turns out the Zabvronians have been holed up in Hidden Hills for the past 10 years, awaiting instructions from back home. And the Weavers are the first humans who have ever lived amongst them.
The Neighbors stars Jami Gertz as Debbie Weaver, Lenny Venito as Marty Weaver, Simon Templeman as Larry Bird, Toks Olagundoye as Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Clara Mamet as Amber Weaver, Tim Jo as Reggie Jackson, Ian Patrick as Dick Butkus, Max Charles as Max Weaver and Isabella Cramp as Abby Weaver.
