Dr. Christopher S. Kovacs - Endocrinologist  
     
     

Dr. Kovacs was the medical consultant on the script for a movie parody of Star Trek: The Next Generation, entitled "Sev Trek: Pus in Boots." This 45 minute animated movie was produced in Australia under the direction of John Cook, and animated by Andrew Simpson. It was released in May 2002 in video cassette (NTSC and PAL) formats. A DVD of the movie, containing a 50 minute extended version of the movie and additional extras, was released commercially in August 2004.

In the movie, hostile aliens that take the form of pimples or zits invade the starship Enterforaprize, and the crew of Captain Jet-lag Pinchard, Cmdr Willing Piker, Cmdr Beta the android, Cmdr Barf the Kling-off, Dr. Heavily Cruncher et al face a tough but hilarious battle to save the mission and the ship. Dr. Kovacs utilized his knowledge of medicine and Star Trek to help John Cook to flesh out the alien zits and provide suitable dialogue for Dr. Cruncher, and he also suggested a number of sight gags and jokes that were used in the movie. He is also responsible for the creation of "xenotretinoin particles", a crucial bit of medical technobabble that the Enterforaprize crew need to eradicate the alien acneiform invasion.
