By Grabthar’s hammer and by the suns of Warvan, the CA Team goes intergalactic this week with Galaxy Quest (1999). Listen to our historical document as we probe into dick-headed octopus culture and the very real city of Octlantis. Adam proposes a theory of sentience matching body plans and breaks down the difference between convergent and homologous evolution. We reveal what species is the most violent and murderous towards its own kind; spoiler, it’s not us! Learn the different subtypes of satire with Libby. One question remains: are Thermians really just Finnish?
