Watch: 6 things Star Trek discovered first

I don't know if you heard, but there's a new Star Trek series coming out on September 24. I know! It came as a surprise to me, too, because we certainly haven't been talking about it non-stop the last few months or anything.

The title, though, Star Trek: Discovery, got someone in the SYFY offices thinking. They thought to themselves, "What else did Star Trek 'discover' over the years?"

A fine question.

And that, dear friends, is why they came to me. You see, I have seen the Star Trek. And then I saw it again.

And again.

... and again.

Even our own features editor, Jordan Zakarin, remarked after our last podcast how crazy it was that I've watched the sum entirety of the Star Trek canon as many times as I have. But it was all in the service of something. And that something is this video about the things that Star Trek has "discovered" over the years. And, yes, I'm also counting one or two things I personally discovered thanks to Star Trek, too.

Enough of the preamble, Number One -- engage!
