    The sequester would have been fine except for one thing. A friend works for a Federal agency; they got the word that, like the sequester itself, the cuts will be across the board, affecting all equally. Except for upper management. That’s so vital that there will be no cuts to upper management. In fact, there will be extra cuts at the bottom (where everything gets done) to add to upper management, so they can better cope with the cuts.

    There’s always Harry Harrison’s “Bill, The Galactic Hero,” wherein all the Space Navy officers were lost, the Chief Petty Officers took over, and efficiency improved across the board!

    Where’s Lonestar and Mog from Spaceball? Mel Brooks as Yogurt?

    That is secondary parody. So they wouldn’t work here. Just primary in this pastiche.

    The Star Trek character I identified a lot with was Ayelborne, who said: “The mere presence of beings like yourselves is intensely painful to us.” Too many people today have the same effect on me. (Episode: Errand of Mercy)

    I thought that episode was so bad, they should have called it “Errors of Messy”!

    I think “Galaxy Se-Quest-er” would have been a better title than “Star Se-Trek-ster”.

    As always, republicans set up straw men that don’t exist (in this case, a media that will not criticize Obama, which is utter nonsense, of course), and are amazed for five seconds when it’s proven that they don’t exist, then go back to believing in the straw men again because their tiny pin brains can’t process the dissonance.

    this is a very clever spoof. All of it. Everyday waking up and knowing Romney is not president is a good day!!

    Ayelborne was a member of a species that had reached the ultimate in their particular evolution. Maybe humans can get themselves to evolve that way. Lovecraft considered it in his story, “Beyond The Wall of Sleep” (1919.) The concept was also addressed in The Outer Limits in the teleplay, “The 6th Finger” (1963) where it is mentioned that the ultimate out come for an intelligent species is as a vortex of energy…no matter. Also addressed in Keith Laumer’s superlative novel “Infinite Cage.” (1972). There are probably others.
