Sheldon is about to have more “Fun With Flags.”

The Big Bang Theory” is doing another episode featuring Sheldon’s web series, “Sheldon Cooper Presents: Fun With Flags,” and this time the awkward genius will be exploring the flags of his beloved “Star Trek,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That opens the door for two “Star Trek” alums to boldly return to the CBS sitcom when LeVar Burton and Wil Wheaton guest star in the special “Star Trek” themed episode later this fall.

“Spoiler alert: Jim and I have some f—ing fantastic scenes together in this episode,” Wheaton wrote on his website.

Wheaton was equally stoked about the “Star Trek” reunion.

“Check us out. 25 years later, we’re hanging out together in the morning at crafty. This is awesome,” Wheaton said when he saw Burton at the craft services on set. “LeVar high-fived me and said, ‘it sure is, W.W.’ ” Wheaton wrote.

Wheaton has had a recurring role on “Big Bang” since 2009 as Sheldon’s “nemesis,” while Burton appeared in a cameo in February 2011 episode.

The episode is scheduled to air Thursday, Nov. 8 on CBS.
