Trek Geeks #218: Strange Other Worlds


Over the decades, Star Trek has become part of international pop culture–to the point where references and parodies turn up in other productions. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and, if that’s true, Star Trek is probably one of the most imitated and referenced shows in history.

This week, we’ll take a look at some of our favorite occurrences of Star Trek popping up in other media. Joining us for the conversation is our dear friend and fellow podcaster, Hayley Stoddart!

Plus, get the details on Hayley’s brand new podcast, SCIENCE STATION 2, coming to the Trek Geeks Network this year!


The music of Trek Geeks comes from none other than Five Year Mission and Episode 15 of Five Year Mission: The Podcast is available now! This week, the guys chat with the Chief Cosmetology Officer aboard the USS Enterprise, Moxie Ann Magnus!
