When it returns for its fourth season this summer, the Syfy series Warehouse 13 will once again feature a Star Trek luminary. This time Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Brent Spiner is coming on board for multiple episodes. More details and a first look below.
Brent Spiner joining Warehouse 13 for recurring role in S4
Season 4 of the Syfy series Warehouse 13 kicks off on July 23rd and on board will Brent Spiner. Accordingto TV Guide, the veteran Star Trek: TNG actor will be playing Brother Adrian, leader of a top-secret sect known as the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Black Diamond. Spiner will appear in at least six episodes for the upcoming season.
"Artie Nielsen [Saul Rubinek] and the gang are on a mission to pull their lives back together and Brother Adrian is a major obstacle to that," says executive producer Jack Kenny. "The Brotherhood is descended from the Knights Templar and connected to the Vatican. It is charged with the protection of many powerful artifacts, one of which Artie desperately needs to make everything right again."

Spiner joins a growing list of Star Trek stars who have had guest and recurring roles on Warehouse 13, including Kate Mulgrew, Rene Auberjonois, and Jeri Ryan.
Here is a preview (no Spiner) for Warehouse 13’s Season 4.
This will not be the first time that Rubinek and Spiner have faced off. Much of the TNG episode "The Most Toys" features the two actors in conflict after a collector (played by Rubinek) kidnaps Data (Spiner). It was actually Spiner who had suggested Rubinek for the part in a last-minute change after the original actor cast for the episode was not able to appear. "It’s been a blast watching these two great actors go at each other again," Kenny tells TV Guide. "Our fans are in for one wild ride!"
