  • The best Trek parody EVER!

    10
    Star Trek has, without a doubt, reached a pinnacle in pop culture -- people who have never seen the show (indeed, who have never read/watched sci-fi) will still understand key references : lines such as 'Beam me up Scotty' or 'He's dead, Jim' do not require explanation.

    Likewise, Trek parodies have been numerous over the years. It is a special delight for the fans, especially when such productions poke fun at some of the more subtle or less known aspects of the show -- jokes that aficionados will chuckle over. Such parodies are often the brainchild of true fans, who have grown up with the show.

    This Futurama episode is the ultimate Trek parody, and the ultimate Trek tribute. It pokes fun at the actors, the sets, the scripts, and (of course!) the fans. But it is all in the spirit of good fun, and it is one of the funniest 1/2 hours this show has ever produced.

    Having the original actors supplementing their own voices was a delight, and seeing them interact with Fry, Bender, Leela & the rest of the gang provided us with hilarious moments. Virtually every classic Trek episode gets a nod, and even the the plot of the Futurama episode eerily follows classic Trek lines!

    The references come fast and quick, and will have true fans rolling on the floor. Steady as she goes...
