Episode 31: A Case of the Spaceys (S2E6)

Episode 31

10th May 2016

When Data’s grandpa is diagnosed with an incurable illness, he doesn’t express much grief, and in return, his grandpa steals his body and makes a play at immortality. It would have been a perfect plan, but the old man was set in his ways, and really doesn’t know how to act in a modern, professional starship setting. Will the crew catch on that Data is once again not who he claims to be? Will Data’s bad behavior get him locked up in Rura Penthe? Can he pass a Voight-Kampff test? It’s the episode where the Star Trek trading cards prove that they’re worth what you pay for them.

About the show

The Greatest Generation is a comedy podcast about Star Trek, beloved by everyone from people who’ve never seen an episode to hardcore nerds who are fluent in Klingon.

Once a week Benjamin Ahr Harrison and Adam Pranica watch an episode of Star Trek and tell you what’s great, what’s bad, and what’s hilarious about the show they grew up loving, and still do. It’s a little bit nerdy, a lot filthy, and exposes some of Adam and Ben’s most embarrassing stories from their dorky childhoods.
