Super Bowl 2014: Patrick Stewart and Wil Wheaton win the Twitter game
Stewart started the whole thing with an amusing photo of himself doing a one-armed pushup while wearing a Seahawks jersey.
When Wheaton saw the picture, he got really excited.
Stewart was happy to agree with his leadership position over the former Ensign Wesley Crusher.
Still, Wheaton was OK with this and reminded fans of the oft-complicated relationship between young Wesley and Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Raise your hand if @SirPatStew threw you off his bridge. Not so fast, everyone who isn't me.-- Wil Wheaton (@wilw) February 3, 2014
But oh, the Captain had demands!
The Ensign was happy to oblige.
Wheaton was even ready to offer Picard's drink of choice.
@SirPatStew yes sir, right away sir. Tea, Earl Grey, hot, sir?-- Wil Wheaton (@wilw) February 3, 2014
The actor, however, had other ideas.
The only response to this was obviously nerd talk.
@SirPatStew right away, sir, just as soon as I reroute power from the starboard nacelle to the navigational deflector, sir.-- Wil Wheaton (@wilw) February 3, 2014
Stewart just sort of went with it at that point.
