Dude, maybe they forgot the mission. "Star Trek? I dunno. Like some space spoof my grandparents watched. I think that Boston Legal guy was in it. Wanna get a burger?"
Update: Logtar has a list of the entire cast. That’s right. The new Star Trek crew is Sylar (brain sucker), Shaun (zombie killer), a pirate, Bruce Banner (you know..The Hulk), a murderer, and Harold Lee (herb that’s outta this world). They’ve boldly gone… (It’s actually a very good cast!)
