Just about everyone is lambasting an Internal Revenue Service "training video" that parodies ST:TOS. The video, made in an agency studio and featuring IRS agents as the Enterprise crew, cost about $60,000 to make (part of that money was spent on a similar "Gilligan's Island" video, also obstensively for "training.") That video has not been released to the public.
For Trek fans, it's an abomination ("Yeoman Rand" apologizes for the mixture of TOS and TNG uniforms) but for American citizens its a horrendous waste of tax dollars.
Trek fans not only should protest the use of our show for such purposes, but, even more importantly, should call for an accounting by those who approved this ridiculous idea.
