'Breaking Bad' Badger's Star 'Trek Story' Gets Animated

The Wrap

Well, that didn't take long.

Less than 24 hours after "Breaking Bad"s' Brandon "Badger" Mayhew first shared his amazing idea for a "Star Trek" episode based around a pie-eating contest and the science of transporter systems, Vulture has cooked up an animated version of his Starship Enterprise adventure.

It was a rare moment of levity in a season opener that was just about the tensest thing to hit TV since Nik Wallenda's Grand Canyon tightrope walk.

In the scene, a stoned off his gourd Badger regales his fellow drug addict Skinny Pete with a story that finds Chekhov, Spock and Kirk doing battle to see who can eat the most blueberry filled pastry. Unbeknownst to Spock and Kirk, however, Chekhov has cooked up a pretty ingenious way to dispose of all that pie. The only problem is his innovation has grisly consequences.

Paramount just may have found its follow-up to "Star Trek Into Darkness."

"I gotta write it down is all," Badger says, at one point.
