Gene was engineer, not second-in-command.
* '''The Bettys''': The BridgeBunnies, navigators and pilots of the ship. One of them is a clone of the other, but neither one will admit which. Both of them lust after Quark. Notably played by a pair of Doublemint gum twins. * '''Gene/Jean''': NumberTwo, with the twist that he's a "transmute," with both male and female chromosomes and both sets of hormones . Thus, as Gene, he's a {{Jerkass}}, but as Jean complete with a [[CrossDressingVoices female voice]] , she's a TechnicalPacifist.

Added DiffLines:
** I doubt that it was, but if it ''was'' intentional, it could be seen as a reference to the fact that Kirk wasn't in the first ''StarTrek'' pilot, nor Bones in the second.

too good to last cleanup
Not a [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Ferengi bartender]], nor a [[UsefulNotes/QuantumPhysics subatomic particle]], nor a [[Franchise/RatchetAndClank galactic president]], but a 1970s sci-fi [[ParodyTropes parody]] of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' from ''Series/GetSmart'' co-creator Buck Henry. It was basically the US-version of ''Series/RedDwarf'', but with only [[TooGoodToLast eight episodes]].

Too many parentheses. They cause cancer. Or something.
