Crime on the Final Frontier

Nebula 9 Fan Experience, Castle S05E06

Series 5, Episode 6 was hailed as one of the best episodes from the latest season of Castle, well it sure caught my attention anyway. A lot of this episode throws back to several sci-fi series, including Firefly which Nathan Fillion starred in, and obviously Star Trek. Some old Trekkie actors even appeared, apparently. I wouldn't have known who to look for which is a shame. :"D Castle also makes Kirk and Picard references, which I could tell when he did them, but wouldn't be able to attribute them.

Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker) and Armin Shimerman (Quark) make a cameo appearance!

And I found out this morning, apparently also the actress for Captain Victoria Gates of the 15th Precinct is also in Star Trek, in The Next Generation and/or Deep Space Nine? o.o Well... hell if I know. The name is kind of similar to her character's name there - the last name, anyway.

Man, now I want to see a real crime in space. Someone write me a Sci-Fi Crime show... Unless there is one already.
