There’s been a film noir-inspired episode, a “Ghostbuster’s”-esque episode and even a “Murder, She Wrote,” episode, but this week’s Comic Con-inspired show might be the most fitting of all for the show with the master of the cult following, Nathan Fillion.

Titled “The Final Frontier,” as an homage to the cult classic “Star Trek,” the episode is directed by Jonathan Frakes, who played the iconic role of Commander Riker in “Star Trek: Next Generation.”

It’s rumoured by BuddyTV that Riker – I mean Frakes – will also be making an appearance in the episode as a Rick Castle fan.

In addition to referencing the show that boldly went “where no man has gone before,”  rumour has it this episode will also include “Firefly” allusions, the early 2000s TV show that featured Fillion in a leading role.

In the episode, Beckett and Castle will be investigating a murder at SuperNovaCon, a sci-fi convention where they encounter avid fans in costume, egotistical celebrities…and a lot of drama.

TVGuide adds that there will be more Star Trek alumni cameos, including the Ferengi bartender from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Armin Shimerman, who will guest-star as a tech geek who makes authentic sci-fi props for convention-goers.
