In this second episode, our heroic Captain, Sir Patrick Stewart — a new resident of Park Slope who famously played Jean-Luc Picard on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” — finds a powerful ally in deep space to assist him in his fight against the Time Warner Cable empire.

On the next episode: whatever Sir Patrick Stewart tweets about.
