Best...Futurama...EVER!!! (SPOILERS)

I can’t believe there isn’t a thread on this already. The Star Trek parody shown 4/21. I laughed through the whole thing.


Shatner ripping his shirt before the fight even started.

“Remember when I threw my shoe at the enemy?”
“You mean Doohan?”
( Actual voices, I’m kinda suprised they slammed Doohan like that)
"Don’t you have a self destruct code, like 1A 2B 3…"BOOM!!! “Thanks a lot, Takei, now everyone knows”

“We’re all just pawns in his game of checkers”

The entire thing was BRILLIANT!

Bender: Hey, what about people who hate Star Trek? Can they leave early?
Koenig: Yeah!

Why wasn’t Scotty there?

I checked, and when the the gas creature says fights to the death took place in episodes 19, 46, 56 and 77 (and Fry adds episode 66), they were right!


Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, I didn’t get that joke till I saw it written out.

It was pretty good.

Too bad it was likely the series finale. :frowning: R.I.P., Futurama–the country never knew how good you were.

Absolutely the funniest thing I saw on TV last night, and I’m glad to have had it to give me strength through the Simpsons and the X-Files.

When the energy beam went after Welshie, I laughed through the whole commercial break.

I’ll bet the ST cast had fun with it, too.

I like the Jonathan Frakes cameo “First row!”

I liked it a lot too, but I missed the first few minutes. Why and how was Star Trek removed from human memory?

The Trekkies eventually evolved into a full blown Religion and swept the world. The governements got very worried and killed them in a way befitting virgins. Line them all up and toss them into a live volcano. toss “He’s dead Jim.” toss “He’s dead Jim.” toss “He’s dead Jim.” toss “He’s dead Jim.”

Then they loaded up all the Holy Records into a rocket and launched them onto a planet that was made forbidden. Then the heads of the entire crew, except for Scotty and Spock left to do something, I forget and were lost. The mere speaking of the words Star Trek is forbidden.

Oh, and it began in a video? rental store where Fry mentioned Star Trek and alarms and sirens went off all around.

I liked that the planet looked like Vasquez Rocks. The whole episode was hilarious. Was that the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons that they threw into the volcano?

I don’t think so. Probably just a chubby trekkie who resembles CBG. His shirt was a really boring read though. I thought it might be something hilarious but it just said “Beam me up Scottie, there’s no intelligent life here” Or did it say Welshie? It wasn’t that funny of a shirt so I didn’t pay too much attention to it.

“Excuse me but I’ve been to enough conventions, I know how to spell Mellvar.”

The second Fry came out in Pike’s wheel chair I knew I was in for a great episode.

My Wife said it was clever of he writers to be that detailed on Trek. I said it had nothing to do with clever it was obvious they were Trekies (Definitely old school)
The Reason:
The amount of correct detail (episode numbers etc)
the Tiny details they made sure you saw (The chariot race scene playing inside the Guardian of Forever)
Mainly though because the episode was about the original Star Trek.

Damn I still laugh when I think about it.

The second Melvar went after Welshie, I thought to myself, “Yep. Never seen him before … red shirt … he was doomed.” :smiley:

Thanks Osiris.

Apparently not. That’s with three “L’s”. :wink:

I’m, guessing James Doohan simply refused to do it (doesn’t he realllly hate Shatner?), thus the “Welshie” jokes. What a shame McCoy was too dead to participate. Guess a “he’s dead, Jim!” joke was too tasteless for them, even.

Brilliant episode, and I’m not even a Trekie (I’m a Lost in Space girl, myself). And yes, it DID help me get through that unforgivable Simpsons clip-fest.

At the very beginning, when Zapp rang the little bell at the court-martial, I knew it was going to be a great episode.


I liked how the executioners pushing Trekkies into the pit yelled, “He’s dead, Jim!” with each push.

What was the crack about science fiction shows cancelled before their time? Did anyone else catch that?

Nope. Had switched over to my *Battlestar Galactica * tapes. :smiley:
[sub] Heck, they’re even bringing that back. [/sub]

Did anyone else notice what the ship that launched the Trek tapes onto Omega 3 (The Forbidden World) looked like?

A Space: 1999 Eagle!!!

Nice nod to the old Trek/1999 rivalry that existed briefly during the 70s. :smiley:
