MAYIM Bialik looked completely unrecognizable as she transformed into classic characters from Star Trek for a Halloween cover shoot.
The Jeopardy! host revealed her infatuation with the franchise from a very young age.
Mayim, 45, underwent a full body transformation in honor of her CBS' Watch Magazine 2016 cover shoot, which re-surfaced on TikTok over the weekend in time for Halloween.
The actress dressed up as some of Star Trek's most memorable characters at the time, including Spock, Captain Kirk, Data, and Janice Rand.
The cover shoot marked the 50th anniversary of the film and television series, and the Big Bang Theory star even opened up about her own memories of the brand.
"I went and saw The Wrath of Khan when I was a very young child and the scene where they put that thing in his ear scared me so much that my brother and I had to go to a payphone in the movie theatre and call my parents to come pick me up," she confessed, while dressed in full Data attire and makeup.
Mayim captioned her throwback video: "Still haunts me to this day," and fans flooded the comments with their shock over how different she appeared.
"Well, that's an awesome Data cosplay," one gushed, while a second made a play on her Jewish background, writing: "omg, Hebrew Data…love it."
"Wow good makeup," another remarked, while a fourth admitted: "Scariest freakin' thing I ever saw."
"This caused me fear. Next time you should give a warning," a final added.
Mayim, who played Dr Amy Farrah Fowler on Big Bang Theory for 12 seasons, has stepped in as a guest host for Jeopardy! after Mike Richards left the role.
However, she's received mixed reviews from fans after she and long-time champ Ken Jennings were announced as the fill-in hosts.
While talking on Twitter during a September episode, one fan wrote: "I'll be sitting out any and all Ken shows."
Another added: "Not a fan of the Jennings/Mayim choice."
A third chimed in: "#Jeopardy was going to go with Aaron Rogers in an over-glamorization of American sport. But then they made a hard right turn and over-correction and made it the nerd show with @KenJennings and @missmayim, completely missing the golden opportunity with @levarburton."
A following fan noted they don't want the Big Bang Theory actress to host, writing: "#jeopardy what are you thinking? @missmayim as host. Horrible mistake, her arrogance was dripping from every syllable she uttered. And her up-speak grating beyond compare."
LOSS OF A LEGEND
Executives at Jeopardy! are still searching for a new permanent host to take over for longtime host Alex Trebek, who died last year after a long battle with stage four pancreatic cancer.
Mayim is still reportedly the frontrunner to take on the role at the nightly game show.
Mike Richards was previously named permanent host of Jeopardy! on August 11, however, drama quickly ensued when he was accused of calling a female co-host a “slut” on his old podcast.
Additionally, rumors spread that he contributed to "toxic" behavior on The Price Is Right set.
In light of the backlash, Mike announced he was stepping down as host on August 20.
