When Sheldon (Jim Parsons) meets James Earl Jones this Thursday (Jan. 30) on “The Big Bang Theory,” things don’t go exactly as you’d think — and that’s a good thing.

Just what brings the nerd and Darth Vader into orbit? After the guys can’t get Comic-Con tickets, Sheldon decides to host the first annual Sheldon-Con. While trying to recruit Jones, he and the acting legend wind up spending a wild night together — one that includes a run-in with a baseball bat-wielding Carrie Fisher. (A baseball bat? Leia would be so disappointed.)

Check out Sheldon’s introduction to Jones above, a first-look at Fisher and her bat below and be sure to tune in to see how it all shakes out on Thursday.

“The Big Bang Theory” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
