Star Trek is a series of TV shows were a bunch of Americans travel troughout the universe encountering garish aliens who speak perfect English. Said encounter between the space gringos and the aliens results in cosmic-sized heaps of trouble, and the gringos are only able to avoid being vaporized in the last possible second.
However, instead of learning their lesson and trying to stay out of mortal danger, a week later they're once again ass-deep in trouble.
Sample dialog in Star Trek:
Mr. Spock: "Captain, we're all about to DIE!!!
Captain: Wait, how long do we have till the top of the hour?
Mr. Spock: "About 43 minutes"
Captain: "Don't worry, we still have 42 minutes to come up with something"
