The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for a training video made for its employees.

FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

(IRS Video) "These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise why..."

It was a parody of "Star Trek".

(IRS Video) "To boldly go where no government employee has gone before..."

...intended to be a training video for IRS employees. 

That production, and a parody of "Gilligan's Island", cost about $60,000. IRS officials say training videos save millions over the cost of in-person training. But the agency now admits the "Star Trek" video was not a good use of its money. On the other hand, it says the "Gilligan's Island" video does have legit training value.
