15 'Star Trek' Episodes That Got Science Embarrassingly Wrong
“I wanted scientists to be able to watch our show, believe it, enjoy it and not laugh at it,” Gene Roddenberry is reported to have said. How successful he was remains to be seen -- in fact, we’ll get down to seeing it right now. Now, we’re not saying that these are bad episodes. Some are actually very good. And unlike some nerds out there, we aren’t saying that getting the science wrong is a huge problem, either. We’re not scientists, but we love Star Trek -- we do watch, believe, and enjoy the show. And we also laugh at it, sometimes.
