Honest Trailers celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation

In honor of the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Screen Junkies have created an Honest Trailer for the beloved franchise. And, per usual, it’s hilarious. The entire trailer just made me realize how hilarious and good the series was.

It pokes fun of the overacting; the Picard maneuver; the Riker maneuver; Wesley Crusher; Deanna Troi’s empath ability; Georgie’s tech vocabulary; Worf’s inability to do his job; Data’s Andriodness; Riker’s sex life; Stewart and his Britishness playing a Frenchman; and, the episode where Dr. Crusher has sex with a ghost. I could not stop laughing at this video as a life-long Trekkie.

They also were able to give a shout-out to the Kardashians, who yes, is a long time joke regarding the Cardassians.

Check it out below:

Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) focuses on the 24th century adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D).  This incarnation of the famous starship is much larger than the one captained by James T. Kirk a century earlier, and, accordingly, it carries a larger crew complement: 1,012 men, women…and, surprisingly, children.  This era’s Starfleet Command believes that men and women are more likely to sign up for long-term exploratory missions if they think of their ship as home.  Thus, Picard’s crew enjoys many of the comforts they’d have otherwise left behind, including a wide variety of recreational opportunities, “replicated” food dishes to suit every palate, and quarters large enough to share with spouses and offspring.  There are schools for the children and a bar (stocked with synthetic alcohol, or synthehol) where the adults can unwind.  However, the ongoing mission—no longer limited to a mere five years—remains virtually the same as it was during Kirk’s time: to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has gone before.
