(0:36-end mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run play the camera moves back to see James on top of the slab with the words “The Last Of The Americans” on it then cutting to James in his chair)
TLOTA: I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I’m about to express are that of my own & some of yours and welcome to another edition of “In Defense Of…”(Show pics of maligned pieces of pop culture while the fanfare from the Olympics play and James comes up after Vanilla Ice slides back and his right hand thumbs up and the words “In Defense Of…” before cutting to scenes from “Star Trek: Beyond” as James does a voiceover)
TLOTA (Voiceover): This year marks the 50th year in the history of one of the best Space themed Sci-fi series of all time “Star Trek” and to commemorate it Paramount released “Star Trek: Beyond” the third in the Kelvin timeline version of the franchise and I can’t talk about this unless I talk about the recent tragedies with the passing of both Leonard Nimoy and sadly Anton Yelchin and while Leonard’s was sad and Anton’s came out of nowhere and obviously there had to be changes to…The THIRTEENTH movie?! (Cut to James physically)
TLOTA: OH MY GOD! IT’S AN ODD NUMBERED “STAR TREK” MOVIE! RED ALERT! (Alarm Blares as James looks as it cuts to everyone panicking as Rebecca Yaun and Nick Yaun start looting the vaults and then cutting to Paulo Fonseca as he holds a book with the title “To Serve Man” bumps into Rowdy)
Paulo: IT’S A COOKBOOK! IT’S A COOKBOOK! (Cut to James looking at the chaos)
TLOTA: Yeah, it seems that everyone has that reaction to odd numbered Star Trek movies.
