Video of the Day: 2 year-old Trekkie Dances & Sings To Star Trek Theme

Star Trek just had its 44th anniversary, but apparently the show is still able to capture new viewers. Our video of the day is set to Adorable Alert with a 2 year old girl dancing and singing to the original theme for Star Trek. And if you have a Star Trek toddler, we have a link to the perfect outfit. 
 

 

2 year old Trekkie dances and sings to TOS theme

Cute.

But why is his TV showing the picture as a box in the middle of the screen?

Cute! Yeah my young kids are already Trekkies too.

3- Looks like its double-letterboxed.

That tends to happen a lot these days if you have a 3:4 SD TV and its hooked up to a converter. (I have that exact TV in my bedroom; its our old one before we switched to HD.) Its probably a 16:9 HD broadcast of a 3:4 program, which is letterboxed on the sides. And then the 16:9 broadcast is shown on a 3:4 TV which means its letterboxed (top and bottom) again.

Sometimes depending on your equipment, you may be able to “zoom” and get it to fill the screen, but it depends.

All of the aspect ratio switching is the most obnoxious part of the “modernization” of TV. We very frequently have to look at letterboxes, double-letterboxes (occasionally), and stretchy people. :-)

Soooo cute

My daughter is now 10, and my son 8, and, despite my greatest efforts (and thanks to them as well), my son is a SW fan. No care in the world for Trek.

But, my 10 year old daughter gets a gold star for saying “that sucks” to Spock and Uhura in the new film after lots of exposure and supposed indifference to the franchise. We barely watch it, but all those years in the swing, or whatever, as we watched as she grew, made an impression.

You have to love the universal power of Spock. Zack gets it too. But he messed up in the lift, for sure!

Yeah, you got that right. The stretchy people really get on my nerves. I just wish the industry would just pick ONE aspect ratio and stay with it.

So I’m not the only father that turned his kids into geeks while they were still in diapers. I think I have a similar piece of footage on my old 8mm videos. My daughter’s imaginary friend was Barry Allen because The Flash was on TV when she was about 2. Ran around with a little action figure everywhere she went.

“Daddy, Barry is mad at you.”

“Oh yeah, why’s that?

“Coz you wouldn’t give us any candy.”

“Ohhh….I see.”

#7 – They did. HD Programming is 16×9. Pre-HD programming is 4×3. TV programming retransferred to HD, such as the original STAR TREK will be 4×3 in a 16×9 frame (pillarboxed).

Programs on Blu-ray are all 16×9. The movies themselves can be 1.37 4×3 (pre-1954), 1.85, or 2.40.

Hi, I am the dad of this little beautiful little girl!

My wife and I were shocked to see that she’d gone viral after only a week! (I was wondering today why the view count had gone up so much today)

Thanks, trekmovie.com, for showing the world how much fun we have watching my little girl enjoy Star Trek!

@#3 – We have an AppleTV (not one of the new black ones – one of the “old” white/aluminum ones) We bought all three digitally-remastered seasons of Star Trek TOS a few months back from iTunes.
The upside: we now have one-click access to ALL of TOS Star Tek episodes…
The downside (since AppleTV only outputs video in wide-screen): We have to put up with the “border” all around the picture on our standard-def TV.

Thanks, everyone for the sweet comments about our little girl!

*(and, if you want – you can see a pic I made of my comic strip character dressed up like Spock – I called it “Amok Tim”) http://twitpic.com/2qm29f

I’m her proud gma! We actually heard her momma scolding her recently with, “You won’t get to watch Star Trek with Daddy this evening if you do that again!”…and, she sobbed!

That’s a cute video. It reminds me of the days when James was two and watched TOS with me. He would walk around the house, extend his hand, and say, “Nice to meet you, Spock”.

#10 – I work in video. No it will not. Even the upcoming 4k format is 16×9.

4×3 was a TV standard for over 60 years.

Adorable! While my sons have yet to see a Star Trek, I share in Jeremy, Mary and mother’s delight. This video will warm their hearts (and embarrass their daughter) for many years.

God bless,

@Basement Blogger: Bad Robot will do what It feel like based on the knowledge that producers and writer have, not know-it-all fanboys like you who don’t know it all.
