Now that Star Trek is on Paramount+ and does all sorts of things with swearing and darker tones, many may not remember or even have been around during the height of the show’s popularity. Back then, moments were far more innocent and far less decadent. That doesn’t mean that’s how it always was, however.
TrekCulture is back with another Top 10, this time looking at another round of the most paused moments in Star Trek history. It was a special thing, growing up in an age before the internet. You didn’t always get to see the big secret moment. Iconic moments weren’t always obvious to everyone and any potential nudity couldn’t be seen with a swift search into Google.
Pausing, at times, was the best we had. So it’s only natural that Trek Culture revisits a topic that really has quite the abundance of moments.
A little spoiler warning.
Generally, we tend to avoid spoilers for the video but this time, we have to dive in headfirst with the number one selection. When talking about the list, shockingly enough, most of the top five or so picks will be about potential nudity or something sexual, because of course it is.
This time, however, it’s not some gratuitous moment done for the sake of shock and pushing the moral boundary, no. This time, the number one slot doesn’t go to bare bits, but instead the most memorable moment in Star Trek history. You know which one; Jean-Luc Picard’s face-palm meme.
That’s right, it’s not only the most paused moment according to TrekCulture but it’s arguably also the most memorable moment in Star Trek history. It’s a moment that has crossed from moment to memedom, and once you hit something that caters to so many people, you can’t help but accept that it very well may be the most memorable moment in Trek history.
