Last week the Internet was a buzz over the rumor that hinted at the possibility that Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci was writing an on-screen cameo for William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.

“I miss when SNL was funny” is a statement you often hear around the water cooler, but not today. SNL and Chris Pratt nailed it last night with this parody that isn’t too far from the truth.
