Matt doesn't know anything about Star Trek. Brent has been a Trekkie for over 20 years, having watched every episode and movie multiple times.

Join Matt as he explores for the first time why is Trek the Cultural Phenomenon that it is today. Relive all those early moment when you first watched Trek. But since there are over 760+ hours of Star Trek, Brent's task will be to find the best 150 or so that best represent what Star Trek is, the story of Star Trek, and paint Gene Roddenberry's vision of the Future.

This episode is Yesteryear (From the animated series)

In this episode, we stop off at the Animated Series to do a perfunctory check in, but it winds up being much more than that. This is the one episode of TAS that is confirmed multiple times as being canon, and it really expands on Spock and his background. The Guardian of Forever is back. And we meet Spock's pet teddy bear with 9 inch fangs, as a young Spock is forced to make a hard, but morally correct decision that would go on to affect the present day Spock that we know and love.

If you're watching with us, the next episode will be from the movies, Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan
