Get ready to geek out, “Castle” fans — and Trekkies!
Jonathan Frakes, who famously played Commander Will Riker on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” is directing an upcoming episode.
In “Final Frontier,” airing Nov. 5, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) investigate a murder at a sci-fi convention. That’s familiar territory to both Frakes and Fillion, who have made a number of appearances at Comic-Con and other geek gatherings.
Fillion, of course, is a fixture in the Whedonverse, starring as Captain Mal in “Firefly” and Serenity,” Captain Hammer in “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” and recurring on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
Check out the behind-the-scenes pics of their shoot for “Final Frontier” — and Castle and Beckett’s mission to explore strange new worlds.
“Castle” airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
