    Poor Finland. I think the only reason it exists is to have a language
    in which to dump all the consonants no one else uses.

    Finnish is the language with perhaps the largest percentage of vowels
    of any written language, so I don't understand what you are trying to
    say. It's the completely unrelated Slavic languages that can have up
    to 5-6 consonants in a row.

    But yes, "Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning" is very funny and highly
    recommended material for Star Trek and/or Babylon 5 fans. It's funny
    and entertaining.

    (One of the little tidbits of how well though-out the film is:
    both Mr. Fukov (parody of Mr. Chekov from Star Trek) and Fester-Bester (Bester from B5) are portrayed by the same guy, Janos Honkanen. As we
    all know, ST's Chekov and B5's Bester are portrayed by the same guy,
    Walter Koenig. Got a big chuckle when I realized why Janos had a
    double role. <<

    That's a great tip. I haven't watched this in years, but this is a reason to
    go back and revisit it. Cute!
