"The Spockranos": Star Trek and Sopranos mash-up

Remember the classic episode "A Piece of the Action" from the original Star Trek TV show? That was the one where Kirk and Spock beam down to the alien planet that had its entire culture based on 1920s Chicago mob wars. What happened was another Federation ship had come years earlier and accidentally left a book about the Chicago mobs behind and the aliens on this planet, being curious and innovative, re-engineered their world around what they learned from that book. It was a great episode with a lot of humor (and not entirely unplausible when you think about it).

Anyway, someone has taken the "A Piece of the Action" episode and turned it into a parody of The Sopranos intro! It's also got a "Scientology" spoof commercial at the end. I think it's one of the most hilarious things that I've ever seen on YouTube! Check out "The Spockranos"...
