  • Parody, the final frontier.

    This is one of those special episodes that shows how good Futurama can be at making parodies of our pop culture. It is hard to find a bigger pop culture icon than Star Trek, and this episode is a work of genius. Having most of the surviving orignal cast (plus a TNG cameo) was perfect. The script was outstanding, the jokes were perfectly timed, and the little Trek touches were the icing on the cake. This shows that the producers, writers, and director of this show really cared about Star Trek, and although they made fun of it, it was all done in good spirit and with a quirky sort of respect. Congrats on a fine episode.
