This week we have a video-heavy great links, with reports on the Star Wars v Star Trek front (and the Kirk v Picard skirmish). Plus more Trek on Big Bang Theory, Trek submarines and Trek tricks with a Wiimote. Plus some Trek in politics that we missed, including Obama girl as an Orion. All that and more below.
Star Trek v Star Wars…again (and Kirk v Picard…again)
The war between the ‘Star’ franchises continues unabated. This week a new report from the front (created by DM Phoenix) has been tearing up the internets.
DM Phoenix also has a report from that other ongoing battle for supremacy: Kirk vs. Picard.

Yet even more political Trek
Last week we pointed to two Trek posts AOL’s Political Machine Blog, but apparently we missed a couple. These guys seem obsessed with Trek
The gang at CBS sitcom Big Bang Theory went Trek again, kicking off the episode "The Panty Piñata Polarization" with a game of Klingon Boggle.
Last week we brought you the creepy morphing of Kirk into Picard, this week the folks at CelebrityMorphing have done it again with their morph of the original and new Kirks.
Musician and designer Ken Moore has turned his Nintendo Wii into a Theremin and to show it off he plays the Trek TOS theme.
Video of the week: Aqua Trek
OK this video isn’t new, but it is new to us thanks to a tip sent in by Paul B. It shows off some fine work by the Yokosuka dock fan club and their aqua models from their 2007 meeting. Very impressive, and something every Trekkie with a pool should look into. More info on these aqua models at the Yokosuka site (primarily in Japanese).
