New Fan Video: Star Trek Torch

We are all looking forward to the new Star Trek movie headed our way in a couple of months. However  ‘Star Trek Torch,’ an amazing new video from our old pal Spockboy Paul, reminds us all of where it it all came from. Check out the video below, which Paul put a lot of effort into, to herald the passing of the torch. 

 

Star Trek Torch (make sure to click the ‘HQ’ button)

JJ Abrams, his ‘Supreme Court’, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and all of the new team are truly standing on the shoulder’s of giants. We may be counting down the days to the new movie, but we will never forget that the crew of that first…Enterprise.

 

Classic Spockboy
Old time readers of TrekMovie.com (from way back in 2006 and 2007) will remember Paul ‘Spockboy’ Sibbald for his many great humorous episode mashup videos. Check out Paul’s YouTube Channel for more great video edits.  Here are a couple of favorites:

Also don’t forget to check out the channel for Rick Kelvington, Paul’s frequent collaborator on many Trek and other parody videos.

Great Video… Took me back to when I was a little kid watching the show in reruns in the 80’s

Awesome stuff. Can’t believe how soon the movie will be here. And also that I’ll see it before the states will!

That TORCH video was awesome.

March 17, 2009 7:28 pm

I must admit that “Tomorrow Is Yesterday” gag reel was hilarious. Especailly when Kirk was like, “….what?” haha

I’ve been wondering where Spockboy’s been at. Great vid, sir! Great vid!

if you have been reading trekmovie.com for three years you imagined the first five months…this site went live August 2006

Star Trek the torch is great–I love how it shows so much of what made the original show great and contrasts it with the footage from the new film.
Truly great.

I had to admit my favorite of these is still this one, which covers the whole franchise for the 40th Anniversary:

That, for me is what Star Trek is all about…

Oh. Off by 5 months

2 years, 7 months

March 17, 2009 8:22 pm

Oh, jeez….that ‘Tomorrow Is Yesterday’ mashup looks like a family home movie made by my in-laws….I am NOT kidding….Spockboy, you are a god. ROTFLMAO :-)

Great video! I just love this torch analogy, it’s very fitting. Beautiful, indeed. Thank you.

21: I agree. Maybe it was the music, but that one made me cry when I saw it the first time. It deserves an award.

March 17, 2009 8:31 pm

I LOVED IT! That was totally awesome, and neatly sums up exactly how I feel about the “passing of the torch” on May 9th. Well done, Paul… well done!

The music on that Torch video was amazing… great job!

Paul is a maestro. His “Spockboy” videos posted on this site are legendary.. browse the archives and check ’em out!

Thanks Jeff for the 40th anniversary video. I hadn’t seen that until now. Brought a tear to my eye, I don’t mind saying.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Let’s just hope the torch isn’t extinguished by a flop.

Great name. For those of us who light candles for eight nights, it’s a good inside joke!

Great mash ups, too.

March 17, 2009 8:54 pm

This video brought tears to my eyes.

Bravo. Bravissimo!

Star Trek is truly for the ages, my friends.

For the uniform… for departed friends… for the future…

The torch is truly passed.

For the ages.

The southern video was cute, but it would have been better without the confederate flag on Spock’s work station. I know it was all in fun, but these days the confederate flag is regarded as being a symbol of hatred–whether that’s really what it stands for or not, doesn’t matter. There are very few people in the south these days who have anything to do with it, and so it seems that this mock-up suggested that “country folk” are just a bunch of dumb rednecks. Not cool.

That Torch video is freakin INCREDIBLE! And so beautifully made, with the film strip motif.

I especially love that final shot of the Enterprise flying away.

Fantastic video!!

God I love classic Trek.

You know, with the “City on the Edge of Forever” footage, Harlan Ellison is going to want a chunk of those Star Trek Torch profits added to his lawsuit…

(Couldn’t resist.)

As a filmmaker, I must say Star Trek Torch is maybe one of the best TREK related videos I’ve ever seen — probably amongst the 3 best. Visually inventive, cool but heartfelt. I’m posting it on my Facebook page.

And I love the A Piece of the Action video — if he hasn’t already, Spockboy should do the same, or something similarly energetic, each accompanied with an appropriate selection of pop/rock, for the 10 or 12 best TOS eps. Speaking purely selfishly and without considering the demands on his time, I think that would be great.

I loved going to the Creation cons in the early 90s when they hsowed fun “music videos” based on TOS, TNG and DS9 that were theme-based montages each cut to an appropriate pop/rock song.

Great job Spock Boy! I love the Star Track one the most though….that one is beyond awesome!

Way to go Paul! The montage of memories was tastefully and accurately done. Most cool . . .

Beautifully done. Definately got a lump in my throat, especially when McCoy was talking about the “billions of galaxies…and only one of each of us”.

This one and the “Inner Light” video are the best Trek tributes I’ve ever seen.

Nice video!

March 17, 2009 10:19 pm

Hey Spockboy, hadn’t seen that before. Nice work. Raising Arizona is my favorite Coen bros. movie. I guess I’m in the minority of people who just don’t see it with the Big Lebowski.

March 17, 2009 10:24 pm

And Wow! Your passing the Torch….amazing. Lotta work. It’s exhausting thinking about the man hours. Somebody’s got to use that. Good stuff.

43–Well, now there are TWO of each of them…haha…

30–Chroma, thanks. I have had that link for a while now. It is a great and mostly chronological overview, and my friends were married to the suite from The Inner Light–so it has a lot of extra meaning for me.

March 17, 2009 10:27 pm

Exactly, 42 (Carig). In each of us is a universe of perceptions, a literal storehouse of the riches existence has given each individual. The universe — god, the creator, what have you — has invested in each sentience a little copy of itself that is unique in all of creation.

Every life is a truly unique universe waiting to be discovered. Where else but in Trek are these things said?

pure awesomeness…great videos!!

March 17, 2009 10:29 pm

46 — three of them … and counting? :-)

March 17, 2009 10:39 pm

Watched and slowed down images dozens of times just now. Great stuff again.
