Star Trek: Voyager: The 37's  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 1

According to Wikipedia, the Milky Way Galaxy is about 100,000 light years in diameter, and an average 1000 light years thick. Doing the math, that puts the Delta Quadrant (ΒΌ of the Milky Way) at a volume of a bit under 2 trillion cubic light years. And, in that staggering volume, Voyager, which is 343 meters in length, comes across a truck (truck-sized), specifically a 1936 Ford pickup. Which can still start on the first try.

Glenn Manning, he was 60 feet tall and had fallen into the Colorado River, where we might presume his corpse would have stopped its flow at some point, or at least provided free sustenance for weeks to its aquatic wildlife. But they never found his amazing colossal body! Well that's because he survived, somehow, improbably, even though he was supposed to be close to death from his untimely embiggening. His sister (the first movie said he had no family but no matter) is determined to find out what happened to him. With the short MR. B NATURAL: A magical pixie that gives off mixed gender signals comes to visit a confused young boy and tries to sell him band equipment. The movie's another Bert I. Gordon monsterpiece, and a sequel to the movie featured in episode 309, THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN. It's a black and white movie, but it's color for the very VERY end so they could say that ad up above wasn't a lie. The episode's okay, but tends to languish in the shadow of the short which, in terms of concentrated riffing power, might be the funniest thing the Brains ever did.
