Star Trek: The Next Generation Is The Honest Trailer You Never Thought We’d See

The folks over at Honest Trailers have a propensity for keeping things current, though they have delved into the abyss of entertainment history on a few occasions. This week marked the 30th anniversary of The Next Generation, (mostly) everyone’s favourite Star Trek TV series. What better time for HT to scrutinise the show than now?

Here’s a short list of fun facts I was previously not aware of, thanks to this trailer:

  • Klingons don’t like to be probed.
  • Technobabble is even more inscrutable out of context.
  • Picard wasn’t the only character to tell Wesley Crusher to shut up.
  • I’m the only person in the known galaxy not to make the Kardashian / Cardassian link.
  • Data loves to tell people he’s an android. Like, a lot.
  • Starfleet apparently teaches its officers to punch with an open hand.

It’s eight whole minutes of delightful TNG roasting (in good humour, of course) that every fan will appreciate.
