yo, not to start some shit or anything but Captain Pike was not just a head on top of a box. he was exposed to a made-up type of radiation which scarred his skin and left his body paralyzed, but his body was actually intact inside that box, which was basically a just a futuristic wheelchair. this is actually explained in the episode (the two-parter that matt and neclord were talking about) by the doctor who is taking care of Pike.
whether or not that makes him a cyborg I guess is debatable, I don't really have a dog in that fight.
I loved this week's episode, especially the Stephen Hawking segment. I wondered if maybe when Matt started the next segment by addressing John as "professor" if he might not have been trying to continue the same bit but I guess that's unlikely.
also, I was really excited to see John Gemberling in this week's episode, as he starred in my favorite adult swim live action show, "fat guy stuck in internet"
