LT: Searching for sharks in outer space? WTF? Where’s Captain Quint when ya need him? Are we talking a gritty, sci-fi nature romp full of Nat Geo or Discovery Shark Week hi-jinks or simply a sad, comedy catastrophe?
ST: Let’s get real and honest here, shall we? Our team won’t hurl any bull shark shit your way. We’re simply tired of only seeing sharks in water – especially only encountering them in the ocean. Why not go explore the cosmos and stumble upon a few big toothed fish? We are gonna do it. You’ll see.
LT: Who can we expect to be the best shark hunter in space? Or will it always be a joint effort among the various Starfleet crews?
ST: If you know your stuff, then you’ll recall that the legendary Captain Kirk chased plenty of tail during his time. This won’t change much, except now he’ll be chasing shark tails. Star Trek may be all about the stars – been there, done that. Shark Trek will be all about collecting specimens of exotic space sharks. And that my skeptical friend shall be worth the fantastic journey!
