'The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Russian Rocket Reaction'Every time Wil Wheaton makes an appearance on 'The Big Bang Theory' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS), it's been a blast. He seems to have embraced the notion of him being Sheldon's mortal enemy, which actually made this week's episode almost strange.

First, he invited Sheldon and Leonard to his place for a party, where we kept waiting for him to dig into Sheldon in some way. But maybe we've misunderstood him all this time. He's crazy-competitive in bowling, but he doesn't have anything personally against Sheldon.

He even fulfilled the broken promise that sparked Sheldon's anger all those years ago by giving him a signed Wesley Crusher figure in the packaging. It was a genuinely nice moment. But what's 'Big Bang' without a 'Star Trek' nemesis for Sheldon? Enter Brent Spiner.

Spiner's presence was the only thing that convinced Sheldon to even go to the party. But when Spiner saw the action figure, he ripped it open immediately, rendering it virtually worthless. So while Wil Wheaton and Sheldon are now friends, Brent Spiner is now on the mortal enemies list!

We certainly hope we'll continue to see both Spiner and Wheaton with recurring roles on the show. It certainly adds to the geek credibility of the show and its characters.
