Star Trek Saves Christmas + Enterprise in Lights + Trekmas Music

A new viral video from Hollywoodleek called "Dtadr Trek Saves Christmas" (in the Holiday spirit forgive them for confusing Romulans and Klingons)

Here is a video of the 2012 East Peoria, Illinois Holiday Festival of Lights parade featuring the USS Peoria, a USS Enterprise in lights.

Musician Rick Moyer has given a number of classic Christmas tunes a Star Trek twist. For example "Here Comes Enterprise"

A Very Merry Christmas to All!

Merry Christmas from England! Hope Father Christmas brings you everything you wished for. I have a feeling he’ll be bringing us the best Trek film EVER in a few months time! (With help from Bob, Alex, JJ & co., thanks in advance for that, the present I’m most looking forward to!)

Bill Shatner from parallel universe or the master in Dr. Who!! ;)

Merry Christmas to this lovely site and his host:):)

and Anthony, More exclusives please!!

December 25, 2012 7:51 am

This must be the Evil Kirk from The Enemy Within bc he looks like Satan in that goatee! @_@!

December 25, 2012 7:53 am

Oh and Merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) to all. Peace on Earth. Please hold your children close, for recent times have been crazy scary, esp for the little ones.

December 25, 2012 8:52 am

Happy holidays, everyone!

And a special note of thanks to Anthony. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy this site. A heartfelt thanks to you and your wonderful staff for providing such a great way for Trek fans to connect, share, argue, and celebrate our love for Star Trek. Your efforts throughout the year are deeply, deeply appreciated!

Once again, Merry Christmas!
And I hope you all have a festive time with your families today.

December 25, 2012 9:34 am

Merry Christmas, everyone! I got the new TOS door chime and the 150th anniversary of the Federation book with display from my wonderful children.

Merry Christmas to all.

Woohoo! Trekmas is here!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

December 25, 2012 11:04 am

Still love me some Shatner!

On another note,…my sons have the disadvantage of, well,…being my sons. They’re into Six Million Dollar Man and Star Wars, among other things. They received the new Mego style Steve Austin dolls that Entertainment Earth has just put out. And some light sabers. There couldn’t have been two greater gifts or two happier boys.

Red Rider Bee Bee Gun, my eye.

Merry Christmas all!

My family has been the one I’ve forged over the years, since I don’t really know or have any connections with my flesh-and-blood family. But I think “family is what you make of it” isn’t such a negative message. I have wonderful memories with these unrelated folks I know. It almost reminds me of one of the themes in the upcoming Trek movie!

In any case, I wish you all the very best this holiday season, and I hope you have a grand time with all your family members and friends.

December 25, 2012 11:40 am

Love it!!! Merry Christmas to all. May the love of our Heavenly Father and His Son be with you today. :-)


P.S. Hehehehe Klingons must have stolen the Romulan ship and Scotty bringing the power to the Enterprise D… Funny

Whatever your spiritual beliefs, or lack thereof, I wish you all the best and may we all do our best, whatever that is, to help our struggling world get to a time of real peace.

I love it. Shatner — the ultimate cool dork.

Merry Christmas (or Happy Christmahanakwaanzika, or Happy Yule, or Happy Holidays, or Happy Tuesday) everyone!

I know I don’t post regularly, although I do lurk and read daily and have done so for years, but I just wanted to spread the holiday cheer today. I’m glad for this great website and all of the fun people who comment here. :)

Now for more eggnog!

Oh, I forgot Festivus! LOL

Peace in your hearts, love in your hands, and best wishes for all…

Lord knows we could use it. :)

December 25, 2012 12:56 pm

Dear Trek Nation,

Yes, we Trekkers can forgive the Star Trek saves Christmas video’s major mistakes. I mean Kirk, Spock and Scotty flying the Enterprise D? But I’m not sure the Klingons would forgive the producers for putting them in a Romulan Warbird. :-)


December 25, 2012 1:05 pm

Merry Christmas to you all. I added some more celeb tweets and images above. LeVar’s are very fun

December 25, 2012 1:16 pm

Merry Christmas! Thanks to one of my favorite Trek websites!

December 25, 2012 1:20 pm

So, what’s new ? Have I missed much during the past couple of months ? Any news on the sequel yet ?

Kidding ;) Apart from checking out the trailers, I’ve deliberately been avoiding reading some of Trekmovie’s articles (and most of the discussions) because I’m trying to avoid spoilers. Having said that, Anthony Pascale’s recent coverage of “Star Trek Into Darkness” has been outstanding. It’s great that Trekmovie is well and truly back in action.

Bob Orci (if you’re reading this): From what I’ve allowed myself to learn about “Star Trek Into Darkness” so far, it looks like you’ve done a fantastic job. Exciting and intriguing stuff. Well done.

I’m also pleased to see DMDuncan is still posting really entertaining comments on Trekmovie. I always end up with a grin on my face when reading those.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.

December 25, 2012 1:25 pm

Feliz Navidad y Prospero 2013 :)

Poor Levar, he didn’t get the special limited edition PEZ that includes Picard as Locutus!

Happy Christmas, to all!

Happy Holidays, you guys!

Gotta say – Brent Spiner is hilarious. Someone should be looking to cast that guy in a clever comedy.

December 25, 2012 4:26 pm

“Set phasers to ‘love me.’.” ‘Community’ reference for the win! And Merry Chirstmas fellow Trekkies and Trekkers, especially the gang at!

December 25, 2012 4:43 pm

Just think- this time next year, we’ll be unwrapping the DVD with extra scenes, commentary, and other Star Trek Into Darkness goodies.

I wonder how many action figures we’ll see? :-)

I love the Zoe Saldana photo! She’s all smiles and so happy with her family. It’s just so heart-warming.

All the other photos are great, too. And Spiner’s always hilarious. Of course, to him I say, I wis

I haven’t seen the other content yet. Too busy with Christmas stuff. Including unwrapping and setting up and downloading activities relating to my new Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

Which I got as a gift.

I recently bought a BlackBerry PlayBook and I’m enjoying it. So now I hae two tablets. Still don’t have an iPad, original or fun-size. But I don’t feel I need it right now.

I hope everyone’s Christmas was everything they hoped for, whether or not gifts were involved. The important thing about Christmas, after all, isn’t gifts, it’s being with family and friends, whether in person or in spirit.

Although, presents certainly don’t hurt. ;-)

December 25, 2012 6:36 pm

Cool! Merry Christmas, Merry Trekmas, and Happy Holidays, everyone! All the best in 2013!

December 25, 2012 7:55 pm

Truly, the best of times…

KHAAAN the weasel
December 26, 2012 2:33 am

Merry Christmas, fellow Trekkers and a belated happy Hanukkah. If I didn’t know better I’d get the impression that the Shat was high as a kite… gotta love that crazy old fella.
And also: Is Brent Spiner a COMPULSIVE jokester?

December 26, 2012 12:06 pm

Had a great trek christmas. Got a 1/350 (3 footer) model of the original Enterprise with the Light Set (which is an amazing lightset. Should look like the Master Replica model when finished and for a 1/4 of the price), and Star Trek: Catan. Cool board game.

Merry Christmas to all

Hey guys!

I’m Samuel Lewis I wrote, co-directed, and starred in Star Trek Saves Christmas. I just wanted to say thank you for posting our video,and also in the spirit of the holiday being so forgiving on my major star trek errors! I will never confuse Klingon for Romulan ships again! I’m seriously kicking myself looking at it. Next time i will do more research to do you guys proud! You guys truly rock for being so understanding! Star Trek really does have the best fans. Happy Holidays Everyone!

December 30, 2012 5:41 am

Just watched the Shat’s clip … he’s odd and funny!
