Grant Imahara, a member of the Mythbusters' "B Team", confirmed on his Twitter feed this weekend that the Discovery Channel's super-geeky pseudo-science series would test the plausability of the infamous James Kirk Anti-Gorn cannon. In the Original Series episode "Arena", an alien bring called a "Metron" pits Captain Kirk against the captain of an opposing Gorn starship in a fight to the death. Kirk "re-invents" gun powder using naturally occuring minerals, creates a makeshift cannon from a large bamboo stalk and uses diamonds as a projectile to stop the Gorn in his lizardy tracks. Will Grant and friends be able to produce a working weapon using Kirk's methodology? Tune in next season to find out!
