Star Wrek The Pirkinning or something like that

Has anyone else on here seen it? I got it on Netflix. When the show started I turned it off during all the fastfood on Earth bit since I was with my girlfriend. I figured I'd trudge through it later, sort of like a chore. The show got better after they built the space fleet and then attacked Babylon 5. I had no idea that it wasn't in English when I ordered it.

The film is just awesome!

It's the best Trek and B5 parody ever made!

It comes from the name of the main charcter James B. Pirk () and the Babylon 5 TV film "In The Beginning"!

I had no idea that it wasn't in English when I ordered it.
Did you buy it? It's supposed to be downloadable for free?

Here's a link for a free legal download of the movie:

They are not supposed to be selling it, otherwise they could have serious legal problems with Paramount and Warner.

Re: Star Wrek The Pirkinning or something like that

I love it. I have the original version and I just saw the newer copyright friendly version in Best Buy this weekend. It's $15.

When I got mine from Finland I also ordered the soundtrack. It's great.

I would suggest downloading the subtitle worksheet. It also gives some background information that enhances the movie.

I remember laughing hard at the Sheridan-like character launching into long, pretentious speeches at every opportunity . The effects were pretty good for what's basically a fan film, too, but over all the story and acting weren't really tight enough to fully hold my interest.

I meant that I "ordered" it on Netflix.

If it appeals to your warped sense of humor then it will appeal to mine as well - I'll give it a try!

Re: Star Wrek The Pirkinning or something like that

I tried to watch it a few years ago, but I got bored pretty fast. I had no idea it was partially a Babylon 5 parody...maybe the fact that I've never seen Babylon 5 was part of why I didn't get it. It was also weird seeing a foreign movie that was one of those parody comedies...most of the foreign movies I've seen have been dramas or at least really professional comedies, unlike this, which had a very low-fi 'fan film' quality to it. I do remember being amused by the running gag of the Captain having toilet paper stuck to his foot all the time.

Oh yeah, I think you will.

Here's the link for the annotated translations that show the ego of Pirk. http://starwreck.com/annotated_translation.pdf

Don't forget to check out the making of link at http://www.starwreck.com/. It's amazing they did this mostly one character at a time in a small area in his apartment.
