TBBT goes TNG in "The Bakersfield Expedition"
On this Thursday’s episode of The Big Bang Theory (titled "The Bakersfield Expedition") the gang get dressed up in Star Trek: The Next Generation costumes and head to Bakersfield Comic Con.
All four guys are heading to the Bakersfield Comic-Con dressed as characters from Star Trek : The Next Generation. Their trip seems long because Sheldon has downloaded his voice and facts into their GPS. Stopping to take some photos in costume, Leonard’s car is stolen. The guys walk to a diner to report the stolen car. Even Sheldon is tired of walking around in costume and wants to get home instead of continuing on to Bakersfield.
The girls are having a Saturday brunch and wonder what their guys’ fascination with comic books is. Visiting Stuart’s store, they get stared at by all the males in the store. After each purchasing a comic book, they go back to Penny’s apartment to peruse their purchases. As the tired Star Trek enthusiasts return, they hear their ladies in the guys’ apartment arguing over comic book characters and wondering if they have tumbled into an alternate universe. Phasers on stun they charge through the door.
EW also has an exclusive photo from the episode.
“The Bakersfield Expedition” airs this Thursday, Jan. 10, at 8 p.m. on CBS.
