As part of The Big Bang Theory, Mayim Bialik is constantly approached by Star Trek fans, but did you know she's also the biggest Trekkie on set?

To demonstrate her affinity to the franchise, the award-winning actress transformed herself into some of the sci-fi series' most revered characters for a truly out-of-this-world photo shoot with Watch! Magazine.

Between costume and makeup changes, Mayim chatted about why the "vintage" Star Trek-themed shoot was so fun for her.

"Most of what we did today is very iconic for me and for my childhood," she said. "To get to embody that is really spectacular." 

Though, in the real world, her love for the series outshines her co-stars', her personal fandom definitely takes a backseat to Sheldon's on The Big Bang Theory. After all, no one loves a good Vulcan reference more than he does! 

Over the years, The Big Bang Theory has paid homage to the intergalactic series by featuring countless Trekkie references and a special guest appearance by Leonard Nimoy's son, Adam.

They even managed to make Star Trek part of their go-to strategy whenever trying to settle an argument, thanks to the game "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock."

For more Klingons, Captain Kirk, and Spock, watch the entire Star Trek collection—that's Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise—on CBS All Access
