Show Notes

Star Trek

Christopher is a big fan. Has a revelation regarding this on the show.

Star Trek Fandom

Christopher might be a trekkie. The movie is a loving tribute. Star Trek cast reactions to Galaxy Quest.

Aliens in the movie

Tend to be humanoid. Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. Abundance, working together. Literalism in language like small human children.

Silly Star Trek Tropes

The movie uses them for great meta comedy. Transporter. Omega 13 device. Most important crew members go down to explore new worlds.

Artemis is Really Really Awesome
