Once again Stephen Colbert threw in a Trek gag on The Colbert Report. Last night’s show featured a segment about how many websites (like Wikipedia) went dark yesterday to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act. This gave Stephen an opportunity to use his Wikipedia backup…and talk Trek. Watch it below.
Colbert’s Star Trek Wikipedia back-up
From last night’s The Colbert Report (via Comedy Central)
For those that can’t see the video outside the USA, Stephen talked about how he can live without Wikipedia, because he keeps a printed back-up. He showed off his Wikipedia "Volume 4570 – Star Trek – Yeoman Rand thru Yeoman Smith, B." And yes canon-ites, there is no actual “Yeoman Smith, B,” but there is a Yeoman Smith. And yes that listing is not on Wikipedia, but actually on Memory Alpha, the even more extensive Trek Wiki (which didn’t go dark). But still, yet another case of Colbert’s Trek love.
Colbert doesn’t need Wikipedia to look up his Star Trek info
