30 Times Star Trek Was a Dumb Vision of the Future
Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It's five year mission mission: To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!
With these words, a jazzy 60s theme song, and a couple of whooshes past the screen, the world was introduced to the world of Star Trek-- a sci-fi series that's now comprised of multiple series, movies, novels, comics, and much more. Each episode features the crew of Enterprise encountering some new, challenging, big idea. As powerful as a great episode of Trek can be… It's biggest fans know that it's also often pretty dumb. Hey, when you cram all this science fiction goodness into an hour, something is bound to go wrong!
Here are some of our favorite moments and episodes that are about as a dumb as a bag of space rocks.
