Video of the Day: Fan Sings Star Trek The Next Generation Theme Song August 16, 2010

by TrekMovie.com Staff , Filed under: Great Links,Viral Video/Mashup/Images , trackback

A Star Trek-themed video is going viral today featuring a Trek fan who decided to add lyrics to the theme for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Check out the TNG song below.
 

 

TNG Theme song

This opus comes from Professor Q (aka Qcotms on YouTube), and it is actually one of many songs he has created. Check out his songs for: Star Trek Voyager and Star Trek Deep Space Nine plus his songs for Syfy shows: Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and Eureka.  

TNG episodes song

The TNG theme song is fun, but the TNG episodes song by ‘metnalist’ is still the reigning king of TNG sons.

1. Phaser Guy - August 16, 2010

Painful.

2. Calb - August 16, 2010

I love star trek, and i love the fans but seriously i hope this guy chokes. No wonder star trek fans are ridiculed.

3. Larry - August 16, 2010

I want to hurt him

4. seo nogueira - August 16, 2010

ow… the shame!!! FACEPALM

5. I Grok Spock - August 16, 2010

I couldn’t agee more with Calb. What an embarassment, not just to Star Trek fans, but to the whole human race. That TNG Episodes video though is pure genius!!

6. Harry Seldom - August 16, 2010

No love (or is it hate) for Riker?

- Harry

7. jon1701 - August 16, 2010

I could only watch about 10 seconds.

Deary me. Deary deary me.

8. Barry Muntington - August 16, 2010

Really scraping the barrel with this one aren’t we?

Just awful.

9. Balok - August 16, 2010

Lighten up, was kind of entertaining, especially the NCC-1701 D, D, D , D at the end.

10. CmdrR - August 16, 2010

Couldn’t get past his first few bars of singing. Sorry.

11. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 16, 2010

Who ever taught him how to sing needs to be Shot. Or put in the Agoniser booth. Good Try but bad Delievery.

12. Boris - August 16, 2010

There is a fifth level of fandom beyond that which is known to man. It is the fan who would never wear a costume, who rarely goes to a convention, watches Star Trek critically along with countless other shows, yet still understands even the most minute detail of the fictional universe when presented with it. This is probably as good an opportunity as any to say that I’ve been fortunate enough to interact with many such fans over the last fifteen years, thanks in no small part to the internet.

13. Phaser Guy - August 16, 2010

Take that times 100 and you have a badly run Trek con.

14. Allen Williams - August 16, 2010

thats 2 mins i’ll never get back.

15. Chuck Watters - August 16, 2010

You gotta admit…..He’s got balls !

16. Allen Williams - August 16, 2010

the 2nd one is actually entertaining.

17. bill hiro - August 16, 2010

Was it Nigel Tufnel or David St. Hubbins who once suggested there is a very fine line between clever and stupid …?

18. Red Dead Ryan - August 16, 2010

Oh god….that was just terrible, absolutely terrible. It would have been funny if he had been drunk, but since he wasn’t, it was pathetic. He forgot about Riker for the first part of his “song”, then realized it near the end and tried to cram the commander’s name in. It was poorly thought out, and poorly executed.

Instead of the Playmates Enterprise D, he should have went with the AA/DS version. Yeah, I’m nitpicking, but since I just endured almost two minutes of auditory torture, I think I’m entitled!

19. Frederick - August 16, 2010

I just read a tweet where the guy killed himself after reading all your posts. You should all be ashamed!

Well, not really, but he probably feels like it now. Aren’t you all ashamed of yourselves?

(However, Roddenberry’s effort at adding lyrics to the original series theme music was much better.)

Don’t do it, man! Life is more than this!

20. BLFSisko - August 16, 2010

Hate to say this, but he looks and acts like a typical Star Trek fan (at least how the general public would describe a Star Trek Fan)

21. charlie - August 16, 2010

That was painful to listen to.

“Well, not really, but he probably feels like it now. Aren’t you all ashamed of yourselves?”

Why? He freely uploaded that video of himself to the internet. If I uploaded that video I would’ve expected a lot of negative comments…

22. Boris - August 16, 2010

19 – Isn’t he ashamed of furthering the stereotype that Star Trek fans must be costumed?

23. Losira - August 16, 2010

One should learn and be able to sing before he tried too. Well that’s all I can say. As Mike says …the Agony booth

24. Lore - August 16, 2010

Is this his audition for American Idol? Oh yeah, I agree with all of you. After listening to the Star Wars Celebration on Sirius all weekend, I must admit, Star Wars fans seem to have more fun. I think their the BLONDES (Blondes have more fun) of the SY FY Universe. It should be against the law for this guy to ever upload anything on YouTube again.

25. Pensive's Wetness - August 16, 2010

he has balls, you to admit (have YOU tried that?)

ok, that was stupid…

26. Nerdz - August 16, 2010

This guy needs a Darwin Award!

27. Chris Archer - August 16, 2010

I had to hit stop when he started singing, I tried but I just couldn’t take it. :(

28. SimonGodOfHairdos - August 16, 2010

Awful, just awful. Had to listen to MentalistX’s awesome song just to wipe it from my memory.

29. Red Dead Ryan - August 16, 2010

On the plus side, since he is wearing a red shirt, there’s a good chance that he won’t be around to post another video. :-)

30. Ethan Tudor w - August 16, 2010

Set phasers to kill, quick please!

31. mike - August 16, 2010

this guy needs a life

32. Kweeg - August 16, 2010

Tenacious D (Jack Black) sings the words written by Roddenberry for Star Trek (TOS)

33. Aragorn189 - August 16, 2010

I prefer this one to his any day.

http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/theme-lyrics/7952-themtrek

This rendtitionwas done by Doug Walker, aka The Nostalgia Critic, a few years back as part of his Theme Lyrics series. He also has done one for Voyager as well.

34. T_Mac - August 16, 2010

oh….my….god…i couldn’t finish, i just feel so bad for this person…

35. denny cranium - August 16, 2010

(shaking my head) and some people slam Shatner for his “Get a life” saturday night live gag.
This drivel is just fodder for it.
I don’t know if I would have posted it here Anthony.

36. John in Canada, eh? - August 16, 2010

that was brutal.
But the second one by Mentalist: brilliant. Always love listening to that one. Makes me want to re-watch the whole series again.

37. Dion1701 - August 16, 2010

I had to gouge my eyes out with a spoon!
Guys like this bring down the fan curve the rest of the world grades us on!

38. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 16, 2010

Ok. I seen it again. Now i am going to havt to put my self in the Agoniser Booth. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

39. Naver Drol - August 16, 2010

Project: Pimento shows us how it’s done…

40. JP Saylor - August 16, 2010

Oh Christ. That kinda stuff went out when I was a little kid. Although my dad and I did come up with lyrics to Voyager.

We’re in space, and we’re having space adven-tures
and now we’re lost,
we’re really lost
for sure.

Backwards and forwards and back-wards and forth
Forwards and backwards and forwards and backwards!

We’re in space, and I lost my favorite sweat-er
now I guess, I’ll get one that’s bet-ter

We’re in space and we’re lost…

lol

41. Rocket Scientist - August 16, 2010

I bet the guy knows he’s not the 2nd coming of Pavarotti. Or even Russell Watson for that matter. Just having a little fun. The charm is in the cheeze!

42. Spectre-7 - August 16, 2010

roflmfao the toy enterprise-d going by!!!

hahahaha.

This guy’s more of a charismatic goofball rather then a TOTAL looser, and probably manages to make hot chicks laugh… (but still not get anywhere near their pants though!)

43. Philip Dunlop - August 16, 2010

I prefer the Adam & Joe Show take on things:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3HL8XVMih8

They’re genuine Star Trek fans that liked to take pot-shots at genuine Star Trek fans… they also came up with this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-1OPCIwyWg (there’s some unsavoury language in this one).

44. A Man who Has Kissed a Woman - August 16, 2010

I can’t believe this guy. Why do you guys post Lame mess like this. Trek fans are ridiculed because of no life never kissed a girl in my life can tell the parsecs between home and the comic shop morons like this dude. He had nothing else better to do. He got tired of feeling up his Uhura doll. He is still waiting for Orion Slave Girl to give him Some. Nuts. Its as painful as watching middle aged people playing Klingon war games. Pathetic. Tell him to call James Cawley for a job in one of his lame trek productions.

45. A Man who Has Kissed a Woman - August 16, 2010

Do I see Tellarite Man boobs in his uniform. Tell him to hit the gym. Lame.

46. Phaser Guy - August 16, 2010

Anyone besides me getting tired of lame Trek Youtube videos?

47. Pan Always Bored Me - August 16, 2010

That’s sad. It’s also me as a kid even though I grew up on TOS and not Next Gen. I laugh at the guy while having a communicator and phaser replica within arms reach of my keyboard.

Basically, I’m the same guy without guts and a webcam.

Rock on brother!

48. Pan Always Bored Me - August 16, 2010

#45..
Give the guy a break. He’s just goofing around and keeping the spirit alive.

49. A Man Who Has Kissed A Lot of Women - August 16, 2010

#45, I know that you’re joking but I have to defend this guy. You reference Orion slave girls AND James Cawley and you’re busting on him? Please. You’re a geek just like us. Accept it. It’s okay. Have fun. Geeez!

50. Magic_Al - August 16, 2010

Since this guy added lyrics, does Jerry Goldsmith’s estate have to split the music royalties with him?

51. Philip Dunlop - August 16, 2010

50. Something tells me this guy isn’t going to make so much money…

…unless he appears on the Tonight Show.

52. David G. - August 16, 2010

He’s just negated every good act from “America’s Got Talent”.

For the past five seasons.

53. Simon - August 16, 2010

This is precisely why Trekkers get a bad rap.

54. Jordan from UGO - August 16, 2010

Why all the negativity?!?

I thought Star Trek fans were good natured people, not people who like to make fun of others.

This guy rules. (And his Deep Space Nine one is the best.)

55. Trekkie1975 - August 17, 2010

A slow news day in Trekdom I see.

56. Crispy - August 17, 2010

20.

Darn straight. Sad but very true.
.

57. Philip Dunlop - August 17, 2010

54: I guess good nature only goes so far. Unfortunately, the people who bash on Star Trek fans as spotty nerds who live in their mothers’ basements (or attic, in my case) are going to see this and have their stereotypes somewhat confirmed. All the work that Abrams did to bring ‘Trek back to the masses (I even saw a colleague of my friend on a seriously manly website, the address for which I wouldn’t even give out here for fear it’ll get me blocked, name Abrams’ movie as one of the “5 all-time greatest sci-fi movies”, from a self-confessed non-fan) is being undone when footage like this gets out on YouTube.

58. SciFiGuy - August 17, 2010

Painful, but I do appreciate the guy’s moxie….

59. Dom - August 17, 2010

What a wanker!

60. star trackie - August 17, 2010

why oh why must the Motion Picture theme be so terribly maligned..

61. Frederick - August 17, 2010

I don’t know if it’s so much that he has guts, as much as he just lacks shame.

62. Bryan - August 17, 2010

Guys like him are the reason I am sometimes embarrassed to be a Star Trek fan – because the minute you let on to people that you are a fan an image of that pops into their head.

ughhh.

63. C.S. Lewis - August 17, 2010

We should pray for this man and for ourselves, that we put away childish things.

Sincerely,
C.S. Lewis

64. bo - August 17, 2010

LOSER LOSER LOSER

65. et - August 17, 2010

I didn’t know Glenn Beck was a Trekkie.

66. TJ TREK - August 17, 2010

Through the hords of posts hear THis has probably already been said, and won’t probably get read but….

Star Trek Fans come in all stripes, all colors, etc. That is what makes Star Trek great. Think of it like America. If the the Black guy isn’t allowed to be part of America, then America is no longer America. the same with “Trekdom”. IF this guy isn’t allowed to be a part of the Star Trek Fandom, then Star Trek is no longer Star Trek. His song may make one want to go boil their head, and run their hands through lava, but….that’s what’s great about Star Trek.

You say “Boiling heads….that’s what makes Star Trek great?” no, but the fact that this guy can have a vehicle for this….uh….unique form of expression is awesome. Don’t crusify him as if there is some Star Trek idealism that fans should live up to. I guess that’s my point. If fans were expected to live up to some ideal, or conform to it, or whatever then Star Trek’s power would cease to exist (and we all know that Star Trek’s Mystery is only exceded by it’s power). And I, like, making any sense dudes.

Alright, I think I’ve toppled off my soap box and I’m waiting to see who is going to throw the first stone (just kidding).

67. TJ TREK - August 17, 2010

oh and as to posting stuff like this, I think that while the song itself is kinda lame, but the post is great. This is a fan made site about fans revealing in the show with others. This guy is gloriously enjoying the show, no holds bard, who cares what people think. If to you that isn’t/shouldn’t be the point of this site, then you really do need to go boil your head, then come back…..

68. Lore - August 17, 2010

OHHHH!!!! I get it now. This is Lt. Barclay’s kid!

69. John Pearse - August 17, 2010

The Mentalist (or Menty to his friends) rocks. But not so sure about that TNG theme song, I’m afraid… :D

70. Lore - August 17, 2010

So, Was he born this way, or is this a lifestyle choice………????

71. weyoun_9 - August 17, 2010

Yeah…this in NO WAY rivals the overly-sexual yet detailed and clever “Star Trek” rap on http://www.thosearentmuskets.com. It’s dirty…but clever and they throw in a bunch of fan-only references. Not to be watched by kids or at work but kinda funny.

72. Phil McCupp - August 17, 2010

Just when I was begining to feel comfortable admitting that I’m a fan of Star Trek, along comes this guy…

73. Corinthian7 - August 17, 2010

So much for Star Trek bein cool again…. Fecking egyt!

74. Zebonka - August 17, 2010

Oh look, comments disabled.

75. Disinvited - August 18, 2010

#35.

Odd,it was never Shatner’s “gag”. It was conceived and written by Robert Smigel. Shatner, an actor by profession, merely agreed good-naturedly to perform the fictional Shatner caricature that Smigel had created. People on both sides of the issue praising and/or slamming Shatner for it are demonstrating the same classic disconnect of not being able to distinguish fiction from reality that Smigel’s skit satirizes.

76. TKirk - August 18, 2010

Just what we need, some guy like this making real Trekkies and Trekkers look like total losers…

77. SMizmack - August 18, 2010

What’s the matter, webmaster? Slow news day?

78. SMizmack - August 18, 2010

Sweet Jesus! Can’t make it past flying the Enterprise by. I did something similar to this.

When I was 14!

79. Starship Conductor - August 19, 2010

Ya, the first one was a little……….Goofy! But, if you haven’t watched the second video, please do it! That one is really pretty good! Watch and listen to the end!

80. Starship Conductor - August 19, 2010

.

81. Kill me now - August 19, 2010

Absolutely terrible. This guy just ruined Star Trek for me forever.

82. Lock onto him and beam him into space. - August 19, 2010

My comment is directed to the individual in the video, just so there’s no misunderstanding lol…

Sir, was that really necessary?

Star Trek was just becoming cool again, and you may damn well have ruined it for us. Thanks to you, anyone who talks to a Star Trek fan will now think of this video.

Stop. Just stop. You’re embarrassing us and yourself.

83. Taranaich - August 20, 2010

63.: I am frankly disgusted in your subversion of C.S. Lewis’ original intentions. The “childish things” Lewis spoke of was the desperate need to feel “mature” – which is itself a sign of immaturity. He was attacking people who criticized adults reading fairy-tales, and said that as adults, we should put away such “childish things” as the desire to appear so very grown up.

I’m really, really depressed reading the comments here. Star Trek has survived years of ridicule and marginalization by the general public. I don’t think *one* video is going to change its new popularity. Being embarassed for him and for Trek fandom in general? Fine. Finding the video painful to watch? Sure. But wishing death, humiliation or other cruel things on the guy, even in jest? Come now.

This isn’t what gives Star Trek fandom a bad name, it’s the petty, catty sniping that does.

84. Dom - August 24, 2010

83. Taranaich

Nope! Sniping’s what fans do to each other, distasteful as it is! Toss-pots like the idiot on the video put themselves on Youtube and tar everyone with his rancid brush!

Y’know, people can be all politically correct and say ‘Ooh, but there are all types of Star Trek fans, Dom, and you should be tolerant of them!’

Well tough! I like Star Trek (the original) because it’s smart, sexy, well-written by people who had lives before they were screenwriters and it asked a few pertinent questions amidst the humour, sexy women and fist fights.

It was great, frequently thought-provoking, entertainment. Try to explain that to casual viewers when that ****head is vomiting his trash where anyone on the planet, except possibly in China and North Korea, can see it.

Then again, if Kim Jong-il allowed the North Koreans to watch that Youtube video, they’d probably advocate exterminating all Americans on the spot!! ;)
