For the second time this year, Saturday Night Live has returned to the final frontier for a Star Trek skit. This time it was all about billionaires in space, focusing on an actual Star Trek vet.
Space is awesome in “Billionaire Star Trek”
This summer saw billionaires Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos launch into space on rockets from their own companies. And for their season opener, NBC’s venerable sketch show Saturday Night Live was inspired by these space feats for the pre-filmed sketch “Billionaire Star Trek,” starring host Owen Wilson as Bezos in Star Trek: Ego Quest, the latest show from Paramount+
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is a Star Trek fan and has actually appeared in a cameo in the 2016 film Star Trek Beyond, playing an alien Starfleet official on Yorktown Station.
