Friday Night Movies: Alternative Trek Openings

Star Trek mash-ups on YouTube are ubiquitous and one sub-genre is alternative opening credit sequences (and a sub-sub-genre is credits made to mimic another show). In some cases it is a bit of fun, but in other cases they could be considered an improvement or at least a compelling possibility. So check out some of these ‘two great shows that taste great together’ mash-ups below.


There are many of these kinds of things, the ones below were picked as the best for each series.

TOS + The A Team (by ‘huckbone’)

TNG + Dallas (by ‘ FanboyFilms’)

DS9 + new Battlestar Galactica (by ‘dwlieu’)

VOY + Angel (by ‘ Bloempje721’)

ENT + Stargate Atlantis (by ‘koradan’)

Bonus: TNG + The Love Boat (by ‘huckbone’)
It was hard to choose the best TNG Alt. cred…so here was the very close 2nd.

Kelvington/Spockboy Klassics
Here are a couple of the gag reels from 2007 made by our friends Spock boy and Kelvington that fall into the sub-sub-genre of Alternative Openings
TOS + Mission Impossible (made for “Tholian Web”)

TOS + Space 1999 (for “Tomorrow is Yesterday”)

Hey, what is this I got robbed out of 1st place?? Hah! I am going back to bed. My comments and everything disappeared!! Oh well, so much for my 15 mins of fame…:) That A-Team intro was OK, but I think the Love Boat was genius besides the song always relaxed me..

GREATEST… FUNNIEST… SH*T… I’VE SEEN… ALL WEEK!!!

The A-Team and Love Boat versions had me in tears!!!!!!

I’ve never seen the A-team or Love Boat, but both the videos were still funny and enjoyable.

April 4, 2008 8:19 pm

WOW!!! I love the DS9/BSG one! Actually reminds of why I love both shows.

Those were great. Paramount is missing out on alot of good talent. I really like the Dallas themed intro

With some of the above creativity new Trek might still be on the air!

Still can’t beat the SNL “Love Boat: The Next Generation” with Chris Farley’s Frakes/Riker and Geordi as the Bartender. Outasight!

The actual SNL skit with Patrick Stewart was great.

Mr Data, set a course for LOVE!

Loved… Dallas opening, The Love Boat, and BSG. Now, of DS9 were really that interesting to watch.

BTW, where is the Growing Pains TNG opening? That was just too funny.

Excellent. Carl the Cylon approves.

I actually thought the Enterprise one was -vastly- superior to the existing credits.

Of course, what isn’t better than “Faith of the Heart.”

Wow… ENTERPRISE could have benefitted from the STARGATE ATLANTIS theme!

Love Boat wins

i think the dallas one is great…just wished the were images from tng episodes, not films or ds9/voy episodes. i think the images shown for the actors were great. the levar burton walking toward the camera one was similar to the show…dallas that is.

the a-team/star trek was awesome…but no mccoy?! still great stuff. same with the ds9/bsg…nice.

These were goofy as hell, but I still laughed at them.

The TOS one and ‘Love Boat’ were the best. ;D

I would love to have a copy of the SNL sketch of Love Boat the next generation. Because of that, I can’t look at Riker the same way ever again…lol.

The love boat one is great–love Charo!

The Love Boat and A-Team clips were definitely the best.

Loved the guest star roll for Love Boat: TNG.

The Space: 1969 was amazing — as #26 shows, it matches the original shot-for-shot.

I think the first post should always be declared “Gross” instead of “First”

That BSG theme could make anything devastatingly emotional.

Help me out with the A-Team one… at the end, the TOS Enterprise appears to blow up a Klingon cruiser. Was this from an actual TOS episode?

I have to admit, I was really impressed with how well the A-Team one was edited and executed. It was by far my favorite. Absolutely hysterical!

April 5, 2008 2:15 am

These are awesome!

No way, Spock should have been B. A. !! Scotty: Face, Chekov: Murdoc.

The Dallas one looks strangely like the actual credits to Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

April 5, 2008 3:58 am

The Space 1999 theme rocks!

It would be cool with a voyager – BSG theme

I have to say, I actually think DS9 and Enterprise would have benefited from their themes being a little bit more like those fan creations…those shows actually look pretty bad ass!

I like the A-Team-Intro.
But which episode is the first Sulu-Scene in the A-Team-Intro???

For some reason I always pictured Geordi to be the bar tender.

I just saw the Mission: Impossible one and it’s pretty darned good.

Of course, Leonard Nimoy was actually in Mission: Impossible, playing a member of the Impossible Mission Team, so it would have been interesting to see him as Spock AND his character, Paris!

i love how the ENT + Stargate Atlantis one , is actually better in my opinion then the normal ent intro ……..

Nice job all. What a great way to start my Saturday morning than to watch old TV shows with different sound track. Now I’ll try some Mod Squard, and mix in some Enterprise.

What ever happened to Spockboy and Kelvington’s funny ones before the remastered episiodes? They were “a hoot”…then suddenly they stopped doing them. What a bummer!

Loved ’em all! Very creative; kudos to all of you.

Hmm. It’s funny how much more interesting the later Treks look with better title sequences and decent music! DS9 in particular benefits!

This one is pretty good too:

The DS9 title remake is really good. Which leaves me to consider the possibility of Ron Moore concluding BG by having the fleet “jump” to Earth in the DS9 era…that would be almost beyond belief!

Trek Or Treat
April 5, 2008 11:19 am

LOVED these!

My fave was the Dallas intro. Get a load of the look on Tasha Yar’s face. Reminds me of a bitchy Sue-Ellen!

DS9/BSG was a close second. Very cool.
