Episode 42: USS Dumpy (S2E17)

Episode 42

19th June 2016

When the Enterprise answers a distress call from a ship full of Lennies, the crew’s instincts are to offer assistance. Unfortunately, they pet Geordi a little too hard as he’s tending to their problems. Meanwhile, the captain and Wesley (the BOY?) go on a road trip in the Previa so Picard can have a “little procedure.” Could Toto have improved this episode? Who are the rank pips really for? Can we do this show in a hot tub? It’s an episode that’s like a Sci-Fi version “Of Mice and Men”!

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.
