Incredibly fun group living-room game. You and a number of friends can each take a bridge position on a tablet or smartphone and pretend you’re on the bridge of the Enterprise while one person plays captain and coordinates everything.

Show Notes

Star Trek

Christopher is a big fan. Has a revelation regarding this on the show.

Star Trek Fandom

Christopher might be a trekkie. The movie is a loving tribute. Star Trek cast reactions to Galaxy Quest.

Aliens in the movie

Tend to be humanoid. Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. Abundance, working together. Literalism in language like small human children.

Silly Star Trek Tropes

The movie uses them for great meta comedy. Transporter. Omega 13 device. Most important crew members go down to explore new worlds.

Artemis is Really Really Awesome

Here is a good example of the frivolity you could expect (skip to3:38 for gameplay):

Goodbyes

Never give up! Never surrender!
