The folks over at Crazy Sexy Geeks (that would be comic book historian Alan Kistler and actress Jennifer Ewing) invited special guest Tim Gunn for this week's feature, which is all about the original Star Trek series. The segment is kind of like Mystery Science Theater, but they talk about the clothes instead of the terrible production values. Among some of the revelations: they had wrap dresses in the future before Diane Von Furstenberg started producing them, beards are a good way to indicate that someone is an evil twin, and skirts are really hard to wear when you work in outer space.
