Sure, Captain Jean-Luc Picard helmed the U.S.S. Enterprise as it traveled through the Final Frontier, but what happened when he needed to sleep?

Robot Chicken has parodied almost everything at this point (with a special love for superheroes and space operas). For its take on Star Trek: The Next Generation, it brings the voices of Kirk and Picard together.

Patrick Stewart reprises his iconic role, but Chris Pine is the captain of the night crew who has a mission of a different sort. Naturally, shenanigans ensue, and Pine’s character is even cockier than the one he portrays on the big screen, if that’s even possible.

Naturally, the only rule broken is not inviting Captain Picard himself sooner. He’s great at parties!
