(Daily Mail)   IRS spends $60,000 for a Star Trek-themed training video. And if that wasn't bad enough, they had people dressed in Next Generation era uniforms on the bridge from the Original Series   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 17

RexTalionis: Hey, if you think that's bad, take a gander at the NASA mission posters:

No, NASA! The Next Generation Uniforms don't belong on a poster with the NX-01! You know better than that!


And, putting astronauts in red shirts? Did they even watch the show?!?

And no, it's not an Akira-class starship! You can tell because the Akira class' nacelle connects to the pylon closer to the aft of the pylon, whereas the NX-01's pylon connects towards the center. Even if it is an Akira-class starship, it would still be out of place, because the appropriate uniforms would be circa Movie-era/DS9 uniforms.

/Okay, nerd-rage off.

If so, this is the only Troi that matters now...

OtherLittleGuy: And yet "Firefly" was cancelled.


To be fair, more people have seen the IRS Training video than ever saw Firefly.

How does that even work? April O'Neil is a redhead. And a cartoon!

4 things:
1) slightly encouraging there are zero voties either for or against this.
2) hogans typed to appear on pg 1: They could have hired a bunch of Finns and made a more convincing film.
3) resent the pic with an arrow in the middle only resembles  a playable vid linkie! Therefore, unable to determine if my 2)'s actually true. Am 50% Suomi Finn via late mother; sing in a SweetAdelines chorus & Very Large Quartet (25 mbrs on a fully staffed day) so must be able to semi-act a bit.

I retired from the IRS.  I seriously blame Al Gore for this one. Nothing political here, but during his "Reinventing the Government" crusade, he completely messed with the IRS in a clueless attempt to cut costs.  He didn't cut costs of course, just shuffled the funding and changed the shape of the management pyramid, which blended some departments that had no common need to be blended.   To cut to the chase, they started outsourcing training, so you'd get private contractors teaching about topics they had zero experience with.

Blame Al Gore.

Training video? Why didn't they just use a Jedi Mind-Meld?

Ghastly: Wolf892: I think a sexy 7 of 9 telling me during my audit that "resistance is futile" wouldn't be too bad...as long as I "become one with the borg" if you know what I mean, and I think you do. ;)

Do you mean sex? Because I think you mean sex. He's talking about sex guys. Star Trek themed sex.


Have you seen the star trek XXX Parody with April O'Neil as Troi? She's fantastic.... Let's just say that after watching it I had to retire to my "ready room" and I "made it so" several times...if you know what I mean, and I think you do. ;)

I just got an ominous letter from the IRS because last month's $200 back-tax payment got to them two days late. Hope my irresponsibility didn't mess up the production on this epic.
