Episode 136, “Is there in truth no grumpiness?”


  • Seth MacFarlane has never said anything about producing a new Trek until now: RT @kevin_justus: @SethMacFarlane Why don’t you bring a new Star Trek series back to the small screen? // Believe me I’m lobbying for it.

  • Ten Forward:
  • Chris on Twitter: Do you have a favorite FX shot in Trek? Mine is from Trek 2 seeing the Enterprise coming up from behind the Reliant.
  • Dave Luc Picard (Twitter): Why don’t the universal translators translate Klingon?
  • Paul on Twitter: you ever wonder how the helmsmen in TNG sat at their stations without developing back/neck issues?

Star Trek in pop culture:

  • (Suggested by Doug from Atlanta) The Boondock Saints. 1999, Starring Willem Dafoe, Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus. Sensing a God-given mission to cleanse the earth of all evil, twin brothers Conner and Murphy set out to rid Boston of crime.
  • In this scene, a crime boss named Chekov walks into a bar and tells everyone to get out. This is what happens. There's a bit of BTTF in there too.
