Hilarious!!
14 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode contains one of the funniest and cleverest plots I have ever seen in an animated series.

It would appeal to all Futurama fans and maybe even convert a few Star Trek fans. (Not to mention anyone with a sense of humour).

Absolutely brilliant. I had to laugh further when I read that Matt Groeing claims never to have watched an entire episode of Star Trek. The depth of knowledge he exhibits regarding Star Trek means that he shown his colours as a true ST fan! The jig is up Matt.

Almost every member of the original cast plays their own voices and it is such a thrill to see that they are so willing to poke fun at themselves or their screen characters.

Jonathan Frakes also gets his say (for TNG fans).

My one regret is that I have only been able to watch it once so far as I hadn't set the VCR. However, I can't wait for it to be broadcast again (am glad the TV companies show a lot of repeats).

Absolutely not to be missed episode.
