The Mythbusters guys will take up the question: Can you really build a cannon out of bamboo, sulfur, charcoal and diamonds if you need to blast a Gorn like Capt. Kirk on Star Trek?

Check out the hilarious preview below. The episode, which takes a scientific look at the original Star Trek episode "Arena," airs Monday, Dec. 28, at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.
