Fry leads the crew on a quest across the galaxy to regain the forbidden 79 episodes of "Star Trek: The Original Series", where they encounter the original cast of the show - as well as their captor, an obsessive energy being named Melllvar.
Bender the Robot, please take the stand.
Mr. Nimoy! I came as soon as I heard
what happened centuries ago.
But if you want to discuss
my books of poetry--
Uh. Jeez, don't get upset.
Bill, you are and always
shall be my friend.
Why did the world turn its
back on our obvious greatness?
You can't go to Omega 3.
It's forbidden. I forbid you!
But most importantly,
when I didn't have any friends...
You are now in forbidden space.
So many cardboard sets, so many
memories. If only the others--
We were going to Welshie's cousin's
house to stay in the guest room...
We love it here. Everything is
provided for us and we never age.
You doubt my power?
This court will now hear
some very sensual testimony...
Hey! A body! Buff, tan.
Yeah, this is mine, all right.
I am Melllvar, Seer of the Tapes!
Knower of the Episodes!
Cool! A Star Trek convention!
All you other Slim Shadys
are just imitating.
Oh, I was confused because the
scoreboard says something different.
Then explain it with a simple analogy.
Alas, my ship, whom I love
like a woman, is disabled.
Okay! I'm done re-Ca-Foobelling
the energy motron, or whatever!
Hey, you wrote it!
A crew of genuine space heroes,
risked your lives to save them.
I shall pit you against
each other in armed combat...
This will be your standard
battle to the death.
I don't have much experience at fighting,
except with you guys.
We can tie caterpillars together to
make bowstrings for bows and arrows.
What if I distract them
with my famous fan dance?
Maybe if you showed a little interest.
All right, Koenig!
I've wanted to do this for years!
We can't use our ship. We have life
support, but the engines are wrecked.
I'm living in a gefilte-Fish jar.
Yes! In mint condition, and you
made me take it out of the package!
Like destruct sequence 1 -A, 2-B, 3--

Bender receives culinary lessons from the great chef Helmut Spargle, and puts his skills to the test on national television when he competes against Elzar on "Iron Cook". Meanwhile, Dr. Zoidberg accidentally destroys Professor Farnsworth's ship-in-a-bottle and pins the deed on Fry, only to be struck with remorse afterwards.
Good thing I secretly installed
this wormhole in the table.
The pie is ready.
You guys like swarms of things, right?
Then it's settled.
Elzar will teach me to cook!
I thought that was number two.
I knocked it up a notch. Bam!
It's over. My dream of being a chef
is deader than the cat I'm sitting on.
In fact, why not join us
and ride the space rails?
Get ready. We's gonna jump
off at that switching prism.
Wait, a pie with hobo-Lifting aroma?
Who baked it?
Yo, Spargle, if you're such a great
cook, how'd you end up in this dump?
We need a chef who attracts a younger,
more extreme cooking-Show viewer.
Cilantro, mango salsa,
Interesting. You wish to cook, but as
a robot, you have no sense of taste.
You could be the greatest chef!
I have no choice but to charge you the
full cost of the materials. $10.00.
One game of chess, so must you
serve at least one edible meal.
Another thing I'm great at!
Wait, why'd you stop eating, master?
A diamond vial of Mrs. Dash?
Elzar, I'm a walking pile
of your unfinished business!
Now I'm here to avenge him!
A woman who ended a galactic
war with apple dandies...
He asked what it was to me and
conjectured my mother was a prostitute.
You've never seen mine.
No, I haven't.
Commemorative turkey basters.
Get your commemorative basters.
This is for you.
Next up, Bender, a student
of legendary Helmut Spargle...
The challenger's ugly food
shows even hideous things...
Whose confection achieves perfection?
Whose foodstuff will be the good stuff?
And accept only the lesser title of
Zinc Saucier, which I just made up.
And what is worse,
I framed my dearest friend, Fry!

Leela endeavors to become the first female blernsball player, but her lack of depth perception hinders her skills. Nevertheless, she becomes the pitcher for the New New York Mets, purely for her novelty value.
For starters, use quality ingredients.
Case in point? No more live bees.
The Earthican pastime. Blernsball.
Mets? Shortstop? Pinching the hitter?
I don't understand this Blernsball.
Play the ball.
Go, team. Beat those no-Good Signoids.
I didn't mean to hit you.
I have trouble with depth perception.
Those bums are worse than me.
Wow, the first woman ever to

Like a sexy Yogi Berra.
Why is your number 7/8?
Skipper, we're losing the crowd.
Put in our new novelty act, Leela.
An inauspicious start for the career

Don't be upset, Leela.
You look really cute in your uniform.
God's my witness, I vow to earn the
respect of girls and women everywhere!
Oh. Then I have a new vow.
I solemnly swear
If I could be just a little better

How could you play so badly?
The original Hank Aaron was great!
Leela beats that. She pitched

I need your help, so I can be one
tiny iota less pathetic than you.
All right, low and away.
Who's in the hall of fame?
You're holding the bat upside down.
Oh, you got that too?
I think there's a rash going around.
You opened a franchise!
My husband, some hotshot.
Here's his ancient Signoid secret.
No, Blek! Other way around.
Right. Offer accepted!
Put me in.
No! We're actually winning this game!
I've trained with a Hank Aaron.

With Planet Express in financial trouble, Fry nominates a flashy businessman from the 1980s to replace Professor Farnsworth as CEO of the company. That Guy goes on to sell Planet Express to Mom's Friendly Robot Corporation, putting everyone out of a job.

Wow, ostentatious. Except what

All bow before the great Metal Lord.
Those peewees think I'm God, huh?
Hard to blame them.
But we are a poor and simple folk.
Can you find him, professor?
The Smell-A-Scope isn't strong enough.
Fry, we brought someone to cheer you up.
No. I just thought you would
enjoy that for a moment.
Microbrewed. My guys did all right.
Nay. Like most of your followers,
I was maimed building the great brewery.
My arms are tired from hugging.
Save him. Save my son, Metal Lord.
They saw you save my son.
Now everyone prays for their own miracles.
That was a practice miracle.
Can religion help me find my friend?
We could join together in prayer.
Bonder? Is it really you?
Yes. I am fine. Give the gypsy $10.
I've not heard of them.
They are an ancient order...
I mean, yes.
I'm sure they will. Yes.
Yes, Malachi. What is it this time?
Smite someone who deserves it for once.

Well, you won't listen to reason...
Looks like society's running pretty

It is time to convert the unbelievers.
Look, Daddy, I'm hugging God.
Hello? Is anyone still alive?
How about in the porno theater?

I am not holy enough to enter.
Welcome to our monastery.

Possible. I am user-Friendly,

You can look for God forever.

So far, it's been crap after crap.

Call it a hunch, but I've

I thought I'd look into your program.

Yes! Tonight we are slaves to no one!

Tear it down and try again! But this
