Film Culture Commentary: "Star Trek" + "Office Space" = ?

Wolverine, schmolverine. As a prelude to the May 7 premiere of the new "Star Trek" movie, here is some Trek humor!

Here's a list of 7 kinds of bad bosses, as illustrated by "Star Trek."

"Where are my TPS reports???!!!"

Actually, the list is surprisingly (devastatingly?) accurate. My friends and I have absolutely known bosses/supervisors/Nerd Lords who resemble these types!

Oh, and I love the "advice" for how to deal with these various kinds of bad bosses. Example: for the impatient, shouty kind of boss who demands high performance: "If he asks how long something will take, exaggerate by at least 200 percent."
