TrekMovie has previously reported that the animated Fox comedy Family Guy has an upcoming episode (“Not All Dogs Go to Heaven") with the stars of The Next Generation playing themselves, and today more info on this episode has been released, see below for details.
TNG goes to Quahog
THR’s The Feed has the official FOX description for the TNG reunion on Family Guy.
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."
In his recent interview with TrekMovie, Wil Wheaton talked about doing the voice work for this episode:
TrekMovie.com: Speaking of Trek reunions, I understand last year that you along with the entire TNG cast did voice work for an upcoming episode of Family Guy. What was that like and did you do your work solo or with any of your TNG co-stars?
Wil Wheaton: I didn’t work with anyone except [Family Guy exec producer] Seth MacFarlane, which was still awesome. I got to see the entire script and it is really funny. I am sort of poking fun at myself, the way the role is written. But working on the Star Trek episode of Family Guy, started a relationship with Seth and since then he has asked me to Cavalcade and another episode of Family Guy
Family Guy’s “Not All Dogs Go to Heaven” airs Sunday March 29th on FOX.
Trek a FG tradition
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is a huge Trek fan, and even appeared (as Ens. Rivers) in a couple of episodes of Star Trek Enterprise. Family Guy is rife with pop culture references, with quite a few Trek ones. A while back Rick Kelvington put together a compilation of Trek references for us, check it out:
In fact last summer MacFarlane stated he wanted to do a Family Guy version of The Wrath of Khan (like he did with the original Star Wars). TrekMovie even gave him a hand by recommending how he should cast it.
TrekMovie will have more about Family Guy’s “Not All Dogs Go to Heaven” as the air date approaches.
