Episode 120: No More Lead in the Pencil (S5E21)

20th March 2017

When the Entrepreneur makes an unscheduled stop on the way to a passenger’s destination, the diversion puts more than the ship’s 5-star rating in jeopardy. But when a giant Glassybaby in the cargo bay falls over, its contents prove to be irresistible to just about everyone on board (except those with a special conscience). Who’s working the bag check on the Enterprise? Is the marimba the most romantic instrument? What qualifies as a tragedy? It’s the episode that will force you to take a cold shower, afterwards!

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.
