Thanks for posting this NJ.

Oh how I wish someon would really write and perform the Opera "Le Wrath di Khan' it would be a hit; such a classic operatic story, high drama and tragedy.

I love the 'Staging 101' of the respective crews mandhandling the Enterprise and the Reliant into position with their leaders steadfastly atop their craft.

Can't you just see this as a real stage production?

I can, I really can - see that's what I loved about it - they not only knew enough Trek to spoof Trek well, the knew enough about Opera to spoof it well! And then actually had real singers sing it - the credenzo of "Khan, Khan, Khan!" (though I saw it coming a mile away) had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes... I sent a copy to my friends who sing at the Met here in NY
