When Lesbian Nerd Worlds Collide: Katee Sackhoff Guests on 'Big Bang Theory'

Nerds rejoice! If you're watching The Big Bang Theory on CBS and have loved Kaley Cuoco as Penny as a blonde in a sea of nerds, brace yourself for a major nerdgasm: Battlestar Galactica babe Katee Sackhoff will be guest starring - as herself - in an episode airing in November.

Nerds rejoice! If you're watching The Big Bang Theory on CBS and have loved Kaley Cuoco as Penny as a blonde in a sea of nerds, brace yourself for a major nerdgasm: Battlestar Galactica babe Katee Sackhoff will be guest starring - as herself - in an episode airing in November.

No, it's not lesbian stunt casting  -- much to our chagrin -- but Sackhoff, according to the Chicago Tribune is set to play Howard Wolowitz's (Simon Helberg, also known as Moist from Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) fantasy woman.

Fans of the show know that Big Bang Theory has done this before. Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) appeared as herself in an episode that aired last season that saw her meet Wolowitz, Sheldon (Emmy nominee Jim Parsons), Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) on a train where the loveable geeks each took a stab at hitting on her.

The Tribune article says Starbuck will appear on the Nov. 23 episode and that there "may be nudity." That's right, implied nudity, ladies.

If you haven't caught the comedy, currently setting viewership ratings records every week, including reaching an all-time high for Oct. 19's episode that featured a cameo by Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wil Wheaton, you've got about a month to catch up. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on DVD and also feature Sara Gilbert (who starred on Roseanne with Galecki) in a recurring role.

Sackhoff is set to join Fox's 24 next season as a regular, playing Dana Walsh, a respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the New York branch of the Counter Terrorist Unit. It premieres Jan. 17.
