Technorama Special: Start Trek V Lampoon

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… Message Spock?” — Kirk
“None that I am conscious of… except, of course, Happy Birthday. Surely the best of times” — Spock (Star Trek II)


Hello Everyone and welcome to the Technorama MST3k Special where we watch Star Trek V: The Final Frontier so you don’t have to. Chuck and I (Kreg) hold Clinton Alvord from Comedy4Cast, and Scott Tyler (friend of the show) hostage as we make them watch this .. *movie in much the same way as Kirk, Bones, and Spock tried to hang out around the campfire and bond, only without all the singing.

So we wish Star Trek a Happy 48th Birthday as we poke and prod at arguably the least relevant show/movie out of the whole 48 years.
