Yesterday, showrunner and executive producer David Goodman held a conference call to talk about next week’s episode of Family Guy, called “Not All Dogs Go to Heaven,” which features a reunion of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
One of the big thrills for Goodman is that he actually gets to be in the episode as a convention-goer who not only gets a scene with Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes, but who also gets into an age-old Trekkie argument about the questionable canon fidelity of the episode “Relics.”
He says it was easy to get the cast on the show, because they loved spoofing themselves. When asked whether other Trek cast reunions might be possible, he said not to count on it, but that he wouldn’t rule it out. It’s no secret that he and Seth are huge Trek fans, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the TOS, Voyager, DS9 and Enterprise casts!
Watch for Stewie’s line to the cast at the end of the show — Goodman wouldn’t tell us what it is, just that it’s his favorite line in the whole episode.
Should be great! Tune in to FOX this Sunday night, and check back here Monday morning for the recap!
