Patrick Stewart plays a visually heavily modified Chapman Stick in Dune

OK, OK, so I said the Red Dwarf video clip would be the last of our look at guitars and guitar-like instruments in Science Fiction TV shows, but technically the above clip doesn't fall into quite the same category because it's from the movie Dune. The YouTube blurb beneath this clip tells us that:
The director's cut of the film shows a decorated Stick painted gold playing the role of the mythical "baliset" instrument described in Frank Herbert's novel.
This clip comes to us courtesy of Guitarz reader Michael Simmons via our Facebook page.
