The agency says the video, along with a training video that parodied the TV show “Gilligan’s Island,” cost about $60,000. The “Star Trek” video accounted for most of the money, the agency said.
The IRS said Friday it was a mistake for employees to make the six-minute video. It was shown at the opening of a 2010 training and leadership conference but does not appear to have any training value.
The video features an elaborate set depicting the control room, or bridge, of the spaceship featured in the hit TV show. IRS workers portray the characters, including one who plays Mr. Spock, complete with fake hair and pointed ears.

Yeah remind me again where those Iraqi WMD’s were and get back to me about wasteful government spending. Oh wait Haliburton.
At least the war in Iraq made us safer and decimated Al Qaeda. That war did quite a bit to eliminate evil.
This IRS video just makes everyone dumber…and poorer. It shows we tolerate government being an awful stewart of resources.
The solution is: cut the resources to government, not expand them…as you advocate.
