The creativity keeps on flowing in Season Four, the final original season. Bender takes the world of daytime soaps by storm; most of the original Star Trek bridge crew guest star in episode 11; Bender has a sex change operation; the Professor invents a gateway to a parallel universe; Amy’s boyfriend gets pregnant; Leela finally discovers the truth about her parents; the whole planet stops for an emergency environmental intervention; the gang gets super powers; and Fry makes a deal with the Robot Devil — this episode includes a masterfully scored musical operetta. Guest stars include Sigourney Weaver, Nichelle Nichols, Dan Castellaneta, Vice President Al Gore, George Takei, Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Roseanne Barr, Mark Hamil and Walter Koenig. 18 episodes in all.
