Playing Mayim Bialik Channels Her Inner Spock, Captain Kirk and More for 'Star Trek' Transformation

As a longtime Trekkie, Mayim Bialik jumped at the chance to be transformed into her favorite Star Trek characters for CBS Watch! Magazine.

"My Star Trek experience is mainly vintage Star Trek," The Big Bang Theory star explained in a behind-the-scenes clip. "I grew up in the '70s and '80s."

Bialik admitted that as a "classic person" she's a huge fan of Captain Kirk, so much so that she has the character constantly on her mind from all the episodes in her memory.

"I hope that doesn't lose me fans," she said. "I don't know how that works."

The 40-year-old actress took on the personas of Spock, Captain Kirk, Data and Janice Rand in honor of the franchise celebrating its 50th year, and revealed how the show has been a part of her entire life.

"I went and saw The Wrath of Khan when I was a very young child," Bialik said. "The scene where they put the thing in his ear scared me so much that my brother and I had to go to a payphone in the lobby of the movie theater and call my parents to come and pick me up. That's my most potent Star Trek memory was just sheer terror."
