Re: Star Trek Parody.....

Kind of cute, a little funny, but the use of 'is' instead of 'are' for The Borg in the choruses was grating.

Thanks for the share, though.

Re: Star Trek Parody.....

Parodies tend to suck, in general - but of STAR TREK, they especially suck. Even something like GalaxyQuest, which all these TREKKIES revere is incredibly overrated. Alan Rickman & Sam Rockwell were good, Missi Pyle's always good, whatever she's in ... the rest of the cast, I could take them, or leave them. The movie, itself, was just OK. The only time I laugh is when Sigourney says, "Well F that!!!" when she's got to go through the chompers. It's the only line she says with any sincerity, in the whole movie. STAR TREK's got enough camp and cheese in it, that there's really no need in sending it up, really...

I read that GQ was a love letter to the fans of Star Trek...

A quarter of a century later, they're basing a television series off it, too ... TREKKIES are that patient.

Tim Allen is a huge Star Trek fan. For the record, I consider Galaxy Quest to be one of my favorite Trek films.

COOL! Captain Kirk's doppleganger, here, looks like he's an actor from the Film Noir days. I'd cast him as Dick Tracy, in a minute.

...not if you had seen him act, although it might make for a new parody...

His acting talent was all in his hair, kind of like Samson. When it was down to his shoulder blades, he was a passable actor. Once he cut it, yeeuucchhh.

Some have said that Star Trek did it themselves, with "Spock's Brain."

Actually, I like a lot of the parodies I've seen and read. But they've got to be clever parodies, and the jokes should be genuinely funny and not just gratuitous sex or bathroom "humor."
