The 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.

Family Guy’s “Not All Dogs Go to Heaven” airs Sunday March 29th on FOX.

theres bound to be a few digs at the level of quality of their films….(esp Nemesis)

any news on that potential TWOK Family Guy? ~~(like Blue Harvest)

March 12, 2009 4:16 pm

Patrick Stewart is exactly the same as his character in American Dad! Haha

March 12, 2009 4:17 pm

Is Wesley holding a Benzite teddy bear?

March 12, 2009 4:19 pm

Oh man I can’t wait for this! Although, shouldn’t Jonathon Frakes should be a heck of a lot taller….

March 12, 2009 4:20 pm

No Barclay? Dang, that kind of sucks! Oh well, at least they’re “back together.”

I love that Patrick Stewart regularly voices on American Dad, I mean, where else am I gonna get to hear him say he’s gonna “party his nose clean off his face”?

March 12, 2009 4:24 pm

That’s a TOS set!

This will be a great episode

March 12, 2009 4:36 pm

Hmmm, I dunno if it’s just me, but the character the character that should be Wil Wheaton looks a lot more like Robert Duncan McNeil

March 12, 2009 4:39 pm

Not much of a Family Guy Fan, but I would probally watch this episode!

March 12, 2009 4:40 pm

trekkie1701D, I thought the same thing.

March 12, 2009 4:41 pm

I love the pic!

March 12, 2009 4:42 pm

how come Wesley looks like Barclay?

March 12, 2009 4:43 pm

This looks awesome. I don’t watch Family Guy with any regularity but I definitely have to check this out.

March 12, 2009 4:44 pm

Ha ha, I don’t know why, but the idea of the entire TNG cast going to Disneyland together really cracks me up. : D

March 12, 2009 4:47 pm

This is gonna be classic. Can’t wait.

March 12, 2009 4:47 pm

Ahhh, Family Guy. There is truly no finer example of classic cartoon comedy. “You will BOW to me!”

Frakes has Mickey Mouse ears? This should be fun to watch!

Blue Harvest was great. But I loathe the Family Guy. South Park did a great parody of the typical Family Guy gag. After seeing that, whatever interest in the regular episodes of FG I could muster was lost.

Lucky for them they are geeky enough to put a sci-fi parody of their own on. Because obviously without my approval this show has been a dismal failure.

Oh this looks like fun!

Oh, and #11–

I don’t think so. looks pretty TNG’y to me. Save for Stewie’s bedroom

I’m happy that Gates McGfadden is still able to find work in Hollyweird.

Saucer of milk, post #26?

March 12, 2009 5:07 pm

Love Family Guy, the newer series aren’t really available over here on telly (save for what they play on BBC3) but I will catch it online!

I always love the way that some people simply don’t get family guy, makes me smile :)

March 12, 2009 5:13 pm

What’s with Sirtis wearing those humongous glasses? And Patrick Stewart looks like Avery Bullock from American Dad, down to the suit. And Wil does look like Robert Duncan McNeill.

So where is Denise Crosby, then, in the picture??

March 12, 2009 5:16 pm

I thought Wil was supposed to be Dwight Schultz!

March 12, 2009 5:19 pm

Where’s Denise Crosby?

March 12, 2009 5:28 pm

Even as a cartoon… Marina Sirtis is still eff-ing hot.

March 12, 2009 5:30 pm

#29 –

They’ve been on vacation. You’ve never seen giant sunglasses like those before? Ever? Novelty shops carry them all the time.

I hate to ask this question — and it’s a question that’s foremost in the minds of any True Trek Fan (TM), but…

Is this canon?

March 12, 2009 5:40 pm

Stewie is God.

March 12, 2009 5:41 pm

Except for Wil Wheaton, those are awesome charicatures!

March 12, 2009 5:51 pm

I hope Meg will be the red shirt… :D

March 12, 2009 5:54 pm

#34 OH PLEASE…I am so sick of hearing about canon. Let’s just have fun for pete’s sake

March 12, 2009 5:59 pm

I love how the Transporter has a little Star Trek logo on it.

Hat Rick
March 12, 2009 6:06 pm

A few speculated plot points:

1. Stewey operates a number of devices rivaling TNG technology in sophistication, starting with the transporter.

2. That Neil Goldman kid is involved in some way.

3. A transporter malfunction is involved or mentioned.

4. There is some form of mistaken identity leading to some form of hilarity.

5. Wil Wheaton’s character, “Wil Wheaton,” blogs about something relating to Trek. (Wil Wheaton will also probably blog about Family Guy.)

6. One word: Chromedome.

That is all.

TNG is done, get over it.

Re: people’s strange confusion about the glasses – isn’t it obvious they were all at a carnival or a fair or something before Stewie beamed them to his room(See balloons, popcorn, stuffed animals, etc.)??

March 12, 2009 6:14 pm

I been waitin’ on this one forever. Can’t wait for the 29th!

March 12, 2009 6:18 pm

lol cant wait!

March 12, 2009 6:27 pm

Where’s Denise Crosby?

March 12, 2009 6:33 pm

The more I look at it, I don’t think the guy with the teddy bar is supposed to be Wil. Will has darker hair and no double chin…Dwight Schultz maybe, he has done an ep. or two of Family Guy in the past.

March 12, 2009 6:46 pm

I love the straw.

I have to wait two weeks! Argh!

March 12, 2009 6:48 pm

Where is Welshey?

Ruthless Nate
March 12, 2009 6:48 pm

Denise Crosby is conspicuously absent in the picture. Perhaps she gets killed off in some meaningless fashion early in the episode?

March 12, 2009 6:53 pm

Dwight Schultz might be a cool cameo, but we do know that Wil Wheaton is in the episode, so I’m thinking this might be something along the lines of what Futurama did in “Where No Fan Has Gone Before,” and it actually is Robert Duncan McNeil as a nod to the rest of the franchise and then Wil comes in later, once Stewie realizes the mistake preceeded a joke or two about the quality of Voyager.

I, for one, am glad that Denise Crosby isn’t in it as far as we know. In TNG she didn’t feel that Trek was good enough for her and left, later she realized her mistake and ever since she has been mooching off of the series’: Sela, Time Travel, Trekkies.
