Is this for real? LOL


The premise is so horrible it had to be good (for a laugh).


Made me think of the Star Wars equivalent:

>Mr. Spock, with his pointy ears, is hailed as a messiah on a wintry world where elves toil for a mysterious master, revealed to be Santa just prior to the first commercial break. Santa, enraged, kills Ensign Jones and attacks the Enterprise in his sleigh. As Scotty works to keep the power flowing to the shields, Kirk and Bones infiltrate Santa’s headquarters. With the help of the comely and lonely Mrs. Claus, Kirk is led to the heart of the workshop, where he learns the truth: Santa is himself a pawn to a master computer, whose initial program is based on an ancient book of children’s Christmas tales. Kirk engages the master computer in a battle of wits, demanding the computer explain how it is physically possible for Santa to deliver gifts to all the children in the universe in a single night. The master computer, confronted with this computational anomaly, self-destructs; Santa, freed from mental enslavement, releases the elves and begins a new, democratic society. Back on the ship, Bones and Spock bicker about the meaning of Christmas, an argument which ends when Scotty appears on the bridge with egg nog made with Romulan Ale.

Filmed during the series’ run, this episode was never shown on network television and was offered in syndication only once, in 1975. Star Trek fans hint the episode was later personally destroyed by Gene Roddenberry. Rumor suggests Harlan Ellison may have written the original script; asked about the episode at 1978’s IgunaCon II science fiction convention, however, Ellison described the episode as “a quiescently glistening cherem of pus.”

Anywhere I could find this?


Well, if you can find an episode that exists only in parody, let me know.

Okay, so I envisioned Spock as a puppet, like in the old Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer TV special. He walks into Santa's workshop while the elves are singing, "we are Santa's elves!" Of course, he finds it all illogical and annoying. Together with Hermey (the most logical elf in all of the North Pole since he wants a sensible career as a dentist and all), Kirk, and Bones, they thwart Santa's plans and destroy the wicked computer.


Yukon Cornelius finds out the Abominable Snowman only wanted to protect its young. So according to the PD Kirk has the authority to declare the North Pole a neutral zone. The freed elves become the caretakers of the North Pole and Abominable Babies and are able to make a profit by allowing rich eco-tourists to visit and pet the babies.


Mrs. Claus is given sanctuary on the Enterprise where she bakes special cookies for Kirk and the crew until she can be safely transported to the planet of her choosing.


The end!

Okay, .................................


Some people just dont need any encouragement do they?


"Let me see if Ive got this straight. You're risking the ship, the crew, and the mission on the assumptions that Helkara and Leishman are engineering geniuses, Tharp is a piloting savant, our transporter chief can work miracles, and the Breen are unwilling to sacrifice themselves in a kamikaze attack?" "Yup." "Damn I LOVE this job."
