We love to see a bit of nerdy interaction between massive Twitter accounts, and a recent example might just be the nerdiest exchange we've seen in a long time.

In case you missed it, Nasa has been proudly showing off some images captured by its fancy James Webb telescope and has been posting some of the results via its social media channels.

In a neat attempt to stay on-brand, the official account for Bethesda's upcoming sci-fi epic Starfield replied to one of these tweets, saying:

Space is beautiful. We can't wait to see what's out there...

Whoever is manning the Nasa Twitter account is clearly a big Elder Scrolls fan, because they replied with:

Neither can we! We once heard that "the skies are marked with numberless sparks, each a fire, and every one a sign"

As spotted by Leon Hurley, that's a quote from Elder Scrolls: Oblivion – another Bethesda game, of course – and the line is uttered by none other than Patrick Stewart of (amongst other things) Star Trek fame. You couldn't make it up!
