William Shatner Appalled by IRS Parody of 'Star Trek' (Video)

| by Michael Allen

William Shatner recently tweeted on Twitter that he is “appalled” by the Internal Revenue Services’ parody of 'Star Trek.'

Last week, the IRS apologized for spending $60,000 on the parody, which was intended to be used as a training video (below).

“So I watched that IRS video. I am appalled at the utter waste of U.S. tax dollars,” Shatner tweeted Tuesday Morning.

The six-minute 'Star Trek' video, made in Maryland in 2010, shows IRS workers dressed as Star Trek characters, who are flying a staged space craft towards the planet “Notax,” reports Mediaite.com.

The IRS has called the video a “mistake” and promised to refrain from similar productions in the future.
