Nerds: they’re what makes the world go round. Well, the smart ones do, while the rest of us just watch lots of Star Trek.
The cast of Discovery — specifically the absurdly multi-talented quartet of Sonequa Martin-Green, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, and Doug Jones — took part in the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke this week, and while the whole “singing along in a car” bit looks fun, why not also engage in some vehicular singalongs when your day job’s ride is a goddamn spaceship?
If you love musical theater AND @startrekcbs you better stop reading and just smash that play button.

And so, we get this delightfully silly parody of Rent’s “Seasons of Love”—now about the number of permutations of Star Trek than the number of minutes in a year. The reason? Because we can’t stop watching Star Trek.
Honestly, at the rate they’re confirming them, it almost feels like five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred Star Trek shows are in the works for CBS All Access right now—but it’s worth it to watch this wonderful cast let loose and have a little fun.
