Very funny episode. "When I'm in charge every mission is a suicide mission." You seemingly can't fail when Zapp is in the episode.

Cool episode that gets better the more you watch it. The monument beach scene is very good.

Amazingly, this episode seems to be unnoticed by most Futurama fans -- but the fact is, I personally think this is CLASSIC Futurama, with great satiric humour (check out the TV-addicted aliens and then compare it to your average evil-plotting, arrogant aliens in any average space opera 50's novel) and many tiny twists and witful comments.

Yah! The arrival of the Omicrons, i love those guys! ^^
And Zapp and Kif were in it again, thats always good.
Favourite quotes:
Lerr:"I demand to know what happend to that plucky lawyer, and her compelingly short garment!"

Bender:"Yeah, but it'll never bring back my martini..." {pause} "Well, who wants a Martini!?"

Zapp:"What the hell is that thing!?"
Kif:"I believe its the mother ship"
Zapp:"Then what did we just blow up?"
Kif:"The hubble teloscope"

It's in the early episodes when Zapp's suicide missions were still funny, he's one of the most funny characters in the series and it was wise not to show him every second episode, cause all other characters are beginning to get boring...

Yet another very strong episode involving Zap Brannigan! Not his best performance, but still great. Loved the Ally Mc(N)eil moments.

Of course, the best part has to be the battle to destroy the Hubble Space Telescope.

@Heliotrope: I think that alienish guy is called "Lur", not Lerr. However, I think this episode was great. I also liked the monument beach scene (especially Bender and Zoidberg under water). But if you watch the german version, make sure you got a bucket to puke in, cause the translation and the german voices are horrible.

This episode is great. The Omicrons are always hilarious.

By the way. I believe he's actually called "Lrrr".
His best performance was in "Anthology of Interest 2".

"Drop down! Reverse direction! Increase speed!"
