If you want level-headed advice about preparing for a global crisis, who better to turn to than a nude photographer who played a space creature on TV? As you can imagine, the producers had no idea how to approach a problem as big as the end of the world. As a survival tool, this tape ranks somewhere between a seal costume and a shark pheremone suppository.
It starts with Leonard Nimoy scolding the ancient Atlanteans for their hubris. This is to create a context for what comes next: this is all your fault, mankind. Your lazy dependence on transistors is what caused all this in the first place. And it never makes sense from there. For 48 minutes, random and irrelevant information is dropped onto the viewer like grave dirt. And while I was sitting there learning the history of binary language and the moral implications of, I'm serious, death ray technology, the only thing I could think about was what led Leonard Nimoy to do this project.
Steve: I don't think people will take this VHS tape seriously if we just have an Earthling hosting it.
Dinonaut 800X: Why you looking at me? I didn't come all this way to host an instructional video on going extinct.
Steve: Fine. I'll make some calls.
Dinonaut 800X: Even with a gaping penis wound, subcreature?
Dinonaut 800X: Initiating space plan alpha!!! KROMPP!!
