P.P.S. To save the Satellite of Love from imminent destruction, Mike Nelson assumes the role of Captain Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager (1995-2001). Mike's impression is a little too good. Disturbing? Yep, and then some.
P.P.P.S. Perhaps Mike Nelson derived his idea for Death Rat! from awful movies like The Killer Shrews (1959), which the MST3K gang lampooned (as shown in this short extract from the show).
