The only thing that makes a sci-fi geek happier than William Shatner and Patrick Stewart in the same room is when two Spocks collide. Audi has somehow managed to do just that ahead of the release of the second film in this historic franchise's new go-round called Star Trek Into Darkness, which opens in theaters nationwide on May 17th.

We won't spoil the fun (you can, and should, watch it yourself below), suffice it say that the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, steals the show from the franchise's new Spock, Zachary Quinto. The short video has the two Vulcans battling wits in a series of challenges that quickly comes to involve cars, but Audi manages to outwit them both in the final scene by leaving these logical beings with an emotion that resembles amazement.

This is the second summer blockbuster that Audi has tied its four rings to, the other being Iron Man 3. Whereas Tony Stark's garage and the Marvel universe have more Audis per square mile than people, we aren't expecting to see an Audi logo on the warp drive of the USS Enterprise in this latest Trek tale.

Scroll down and set your phasers to amuse.

      What would have been even funnier is if Brent Spiner got out of the self-driving TT.

      Actually had me laughing out loud, good stuff. Nice touch putting in the lens flares for Quinto. Good to see Nimoy still with as much energy and humor as Shatner.

      They even had Nimoy reciting (singing?) his "Lord of the Rings" song. Amazing.

      They should have played Enterprising Young Men on Zachary Quinto's driving parts and the original theme for Leonard Nimoy. i hit the floor laughing on the nerve pinch though.

      Actually burst out in laughter at Nimoy singing the Bilbo Baggins song in his car. Well done.
