The Great Bird of the Galaxy, seen here pondering the ways his sprawling entertainment empire will choke the life out of comedy podcasts that dare to lightly mock things that he created.

A term pertaining to the official and goliath Star Trek machine, represented by Trek's erstwhile creator, Gene Roddenberry. Adam and Ben long to be recognized officially in some capacity by the powers that be (i.e. writing on the new show, getting a dual-reality comic book gig, etc.), but they also are leery of entering the pocket of Big Rod, lest they lose creative control of their dick joke podcast to any degree.

Big Rod is a conundrum and a force to be reckoned with. Just ask the folks over at Axanar if you doubt this.
