dataWe love it when our favorite sci-fi franchises crash into one another, and today we’ve got news that two biggies are colliding in one small way, as Star Wars and Star Trek are coming together. Specifically Star Trek: The Next Generation is bumping into Star Wars Rebels, with Brent Spiner officially joining the cast of the new animated series from Disney and Lucasfilm.

This isn’t the first we’ve heard about Spiner, who is best known for his portrayal of Lieutenant Commander Data, the sentient android on TNG, joining the Rebels crew, but it’s official now. Reports confirm the rumors we first heard earlier this year, and Spiner’s first appearance will be in the upcoming episode “Rise of the Old Masters,” which is an ominous sounding title.

Now we’re getting the first look at one of the Rebels’ female members.
