Sarah & Allie do it LIVE @ GalactiCon 2023! Despite our time being bumped up 30 minutes at the 11th hour and nobody letting us know, we had the best turnout of the day and, in our humble opinion, put on a great FIRST EVER Humanist Trek Live Show!
Category: All Episodes
When a bunch of Children of the Corn on a scientific outpost cause their parents to Jim Jones themselves, they call to the guardians of the watchtowers of the East and release “he who walks behind the rows” back into the galaxy.
Star Trek continues to be relevant as ever as we question whether innocent followers who don’t know any better are just as liable as the evil people pulling the strings? People who aren’t taught critical thinking and scientific skepticism are very susceptible to “fake news” and “stolen elections” and “vaccine disinformation”? SAY IT AIN’T SO!
When Kirk suffers from amnesia, will the big Manhattan musical go on? How many awful “native American” tropes can one 1960’s TV series cram into one episode? Is the transporter a killing machine? Which Star Trek hypothesis about life on other worlds is most scientifically likely? Find out this week on Humanist Trek!
When the Enterprise crosses into the Romulan DMZ, Spock fingers a Romulan Commander while Kirk steals a cloaking device (treaty be damned). Is it “OK” to do things during war that would otherwise violate your values? Why does this episode seem to say “yes”? Just what does a Vulcan penis look like, anyway?
What’s Allie’s great idea? Is Data’s cat Spot canonically also a hot chick? Why do time travelers always act powerless? Will Kirk allow Marty to make sure his parents bang at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance? What are the rules of time travel anyway? How short can a miniskirt get? This episode asks more questions than it answers.
