Actors LeVar Burton and Patrick Stewart have a long history as part of the Star Trek franchise.
The two spent more than 15 years working side by side on Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as four additional films. So it should come as no surprise when a little Trekkie humor spilled over onto Twitter. This week Stewart took to Twitter to share an antique door he came across.
He captioned the tweet, saying:
"I suspect this door might actually be older than ME! (beautiful Medieval English oak...700 yrs or so, south porch door of St Mary's church in Charlbury)."
