    What's your source for that? IMDb lists his character as simply "Wyatt," no surname. And I don't recall ever hearing that surname spoken in an episode.

    I didn't watch the show, but I was curious after reading this thread, so did some Googling. According to the The Big Bang Theory Wiki (which apparently exists), her last name was "Teller", because it appeared on the address label of a package that she received in a season 2 episode. (And here I thought only Star Trek fans scrutinized background details like that.)

    Since this was from a prop rather than dialogue, I'll leave it to the rest of you to argue over whether that counts as "Big Bang Theory Canon" or not... ;)

    I only read an article about this very recently, when I noticed magician Teller playing Amy's Dad.

    Then I found the surname at:
    https://bigbangtheory.fandom.com/wiki/Wyatt
    It has had the surname added (from the parcel label, I suppose?) but it is not actually explained in the page.

    Meanwhile the trivia section says his last name isn't known (the article title also doesn't include it)

    The article about Wyatt says the same thing. And I looked at that graphic of the package used as a "source" for her surname. The resolution is not high enough to determine what it says with any degree of confidence.

    Exactly. The page was set up before the surname had appeared.

    Penny Teller? Is that a supposed to be a pun on Penn and Teller?

    Lower Decks just gave us Captain Sonya Gomez and I believe she reached that rank in the SCE series.

    About the same point in time, too - Season one of Lower Decks was supposed to be in 2380 and this season all references to season one have carried the description of "last year," so the timing of season two seems to be 2381, and the finale would be somewhere around the year change to 2382. Sonya became a Captain in the Litverse in 2381, following Captain Gold retiring after the Borg invasion of Destiny.

    Granted, she may have been promoted sooner than 2381, but we so far only know that her captaincy has happened as of that point.

    I guess so. And continuing the gag by having that Teller play Amy's Dad.
