9. Drake - October 10, 2011

Can’t believe I’m going to say this– But Rappin Kirk was pretty cool.

10. James - October 10, 2011

I hate to say it, but I think Kirk was whooped.

My favorite, though, is Einstein vs. Hawking. Cracks me up every time.

11. Bradley - October 11, 2011

Wow, this is the first one I’ve seen that is actually watchable.

12. Hat Rick - October 11, 2011

When are we going to see one with Captain Janeway? She’s in the news again.

13. Al - October 11, 2011


14. Christopher Roberts - October 11, 2011

Pffft. Greatest explorer? Archer owns them both. :-}

15. Bradley - October 11, 2011

14. Yes, yes he does. Enterprise is also a better show than TOS.

16. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - October 11, 2011

Well. Tas was better then all of them. Lol.

17. CmdrR - October 11, 2011

Kewl article on Captain Hepburn – urm – Janeway.
Many more missions to come!

18. Bradley - October 11, 2011

Meh. Its alright I guess. Oh and I don’t dislike TOS as a whole, its just that it had so many stinkers.

19. Crusade2267 - October 11, 2011

Not nearly as good as the Gandalf/Dumbledore battle.

20. T'Cal - October 11, 2011

Where am I??? That was awful. Worse than TFF.

21. Bobowing - October 11, 2011

zach quinto talks trek 2 at trek web

22. Kaleb - October 11, 2011

Captain Picard vs Professor Xavier !!

23. Lt. Bailey - October 11, 2011

We should not complain about Trek Rap, after all we did get some Klingon Rap at the recent Vegas ST CON from Martok & Gowron. At least it was better than what you hear on the radio.

24. VZX - October 11, 2011

I would like to see a Kirk vs Picard battle.

25. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - October 11, 2011

they made kirk look like a pussy… they should have at least made him rap better

26. jr - October 11, 2011

wow… 26th.

27. Phil - October 11, 2011

Well, two more minutes of my life I’ll never get back….

28. Neal - October 11, 2011

Random question? Why does it matter to be first? Its just an article in which there is a spot to make a comment. Odd to me.

29. DAK23 - October 11, 2011

Okay… probably gonna get a lot of guff here, but here goes…

How was Colombo and “explorer”? To explore in the sense of Star Trek is to seek out ways to improve ourselves both in knowledge & self growth. Colombo was commissioned to find a faster way to the Orient for commercial purposes. His failed journeys also started an international slave trade and genocide.

There, that’s my anti-Colombo rant for this cursed ‘holiday’.

(yeah, part American Indian… we were here for 20,000 years. I should say WE discovered America)

Also, NO ONE beats Captain Kirk!

30. Trek Nerd Central - October 12, 2011

@7. Ummm. . . . whaaa?

31. Bill Binder - October 12, 2011


Umm. I’m not going to say Columbus was praiseworthy. Also, I assume you’re talking about Columbus and not Columbo, the fictional detective.

Are you arguing he wasn’t a noble spirit? If so, fair enough. But you’re claiming he wasn’t an explorer? That’s just what his job was. He explored. Finding a faster route to the Orient involves exploring.

I don’t think you understand the word. I don’t mean that in a slam way. Exploring simply means going into unknown territories and discovering things about them.

So yeah, Columbus was an explorer. He was also a shitty dude. But so was Benito Mussolini. That doesn’t mean Mussolini wasn’t a journalist.

32. Red Dead Ryan - October 12, 2011


Columbo is the original spelling of Columbus. I can’t remember why he changed the spelling though.

33. The TOS Purist aka The Purolator - October 14, 2011

Geez, couldn’t they make ANY references to the actual Original Series? Too many references to the crappy movies for my taste. Other than that, I have to admit this did make me laugh.

34. DAK23 - October 14, 2011

#32, thank you… a lot of people had or latinized their names to make themselves sound more impressive.

#31, I do know what “explorer” means. I was using the word in a Star Trek context. He wasn’t out to “explore” strange new worlds (see what I did there?) for the benefit of mankind, he was looking for a shortcut in order to gain monetary gain & the eventual subjugation of an entire 2 continents worth of already millenia old civilizations.
