This month, we’re on the floor at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek’s first televised episode.

In this episode, Robert Picardo gives Star Trek fans a pop quiz to test their space science knowledge. And, for fairness, he asks space science experts to boldly go and test their Star Trek trivia knowledge. Robert also hosts a panel discussion about the relationship between Star Trek and NASA with some of the greatest minds at NASA.
