Have you ever thought of Star Trek fans that instead of Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner or Patrick Stewart, the protagonists of the series will be Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. Well, what seems like science fiction in the minds of fans, came true through deepfake technique.
It turns out that The Fakening’s YouTube channel put both CEO’s, Amazon and Tesla’s, in a space series episode called The cage.
In this episode Jeff Bezos plays a Talosian alien with a huge bald head, while Elon Musk plays Captain Christopher Pike (who is the captain of the USS Enterprise before James T. Kirk).
The scene is summarized as follows:
“In this episode, the Talosian aliens capture Pike to enslave him and use him to raise humans that will be used to rebuild a destroyed society. Pike tries to escape throughout the episode, and eventually, the Talosians decide that humans' resistance to captivity will not make them suitable for that plan. ”
The story that tells that the founder and owner of Amazon, is fantastic Star Trek and therefore managed to make a cameo in Star Trek Beyond.
On that occasion Bezos acted as a giant-headed alien, who appeared eating with a fork.

On that occasion, actor Chris Pine referred to the moment when Jeff Bezos cameo appeared.
“I was there for a moment with his nine bodyguards and three limousines. It was really intense. I had no idea who it was. Not a clue. But obviously it was very important. ”
Thedirector ofStar Trek Beyond Justin Lin also published a photo of Bezos on the character of the film on Twiitter.

But Elon Musk also has something to tell about Star Trek, since in an episode of Star Trek: Discovery, Captain Gabriel Lorca (played by Jason Isaacs) listed Musk with the Wrights brothers, and the inventor of the fictional distortion Zefram Cochrane as peers in the technological innovation of spaceflight.
