WASHINGTON, D.C. - After news emerged of a Star Trek reboot for 2011, set in 2115, NASA has decried the show over its episodic content.

NASA has said that the Enterprise-G would not not be able to achieve Warp Factor 5 (roughly 200,000,000,000,000 km/h) without having to refuel after a few minutes, and that the crew would not be adequately prepared for the story of the week, each week.

They also mentioned that many of the actions warranted by the crew members would be court-martialed.

"Look," said a spokesman, "we know that these producers [Shatner, Nimoy], have free reign to do whatever they want. But, of course, in 100 years, humanity would not be able to shoot off into space for milk or whatever. We're not gonna send a manned Mars probe until 2040-ish, so, you know."

Leonard Nimoy, Mr. Spock in The Original Series, and producer/director of this new series said: "Well, really? We did what... launch a man on the moon in '69. What have we done since? NOTHING. Sure, we built the ISS, that was pretty impressive. But seriously? If we had invested in getting man onto the moon for an extended period or getting him to Mars, maybe all the minds and genius that had gone into creating bigger and better weapons could be used to create bigger and better spacecraft for humanity. So, in essence. Screw you."

The show, to avoid being chased by NASA people, will be filmed in Britain, as thier Space Agency isn't too fussed about a TV show about space when the X-Factor is on.

Make Inhopeless's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
