Fun new YouTube find, enjoy [note: contains some adult situations]
While we wait for this weekend’s showing of "A Piece of the Action" remastered one of our resident video mavens, SpockBoy, has made a gag reel. So pump it up and get your gangasta’ on! [BTW: Today is SpockBoy’s B-Day!]
Anthony is busy digging up the latest, so here are a couple of vids I made. First up is "Hairy Bones" based on a video of a girl named Jessica talking about a certain doctor.

On tonight’s episode of the Simpsons ("Homerazzi"), they gave Voyager a shoutout
It is Friday night and not much going on…yesterdays interviews have some getting into a tizzy….TrekMovie suggests relaxing and taking a chill pill
If you have been following our little extras throughout the weeks when news is slow, you’ll notice we have found video clips of various Trek parody/references in Family Guy. The show’s creator Seth MacFarlane is an admitted Trekie and even had two cameos as an extra officer on Enterprise. Once again community member Kelvington has nicely put all the video clips into one giant Trek funny reel. I love it!
"Amok Time" is probably one of the most parodied episodes of Star Trek…here are 3 examples…first up from Futurama
Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert decided to call up producer/director JJ Abrams and talk about some prayer day thing. But eventually the two got around to talking about Star Trek where Colbert mentioned reports the film will be a prequel to the original series and lobbied JJ for a role as Dr. McCoy. Watch the clip below.
We all know that "Doomsday" was the big one for CBS-Digital, and that Special Effects Supervisor Niel Wray went a bit grey getting it finished. Well the effects team thought they would play a little prank on Niel and try and convince him that eagle eyed TrekMovie.com readers spotted an error in the final product (in the trailer). To that end they recreated a fake version of TrekMovie.com with a faked trailer and some rewritten comments…
On G4 TV Doc Brown again travels back from the future to report on Trek news.
JJ Abrams has finally made it, he has now been portrayed on the StarTrek.com comic The Trek Life click to enlarge
Tonight’s Family Guy featured a great parody from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. (wmv)
lately there has been a lot of people maybe taking Trek a bit too serious, and some questions about hair. Perhaps this will help
Ahoy mateys, today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. If there is one thing that that Star Trek’s Orions, Ferengi, and Nausicaans has taught is…pirates are eternal. (note this may be in dispute according to the Church of the Flying Spagetti Monster) Even in the utopian Federation there are bound to be a still a few malcontents, and Mal Reynolds and Han Solo show us that everyone loves a bad boy. I for one would like to see a certain Harcourt Fenton Mudd appear in Star Trek XI. Ye hears that Abrams ye scaleywag!
One thing was clear from watching last night’s Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner, the classic series Star Trek still endures and is truely part of our social fabric. One really can’t imagine a roast of any other Trek actor…even Stewart. Shatner and Kirk are truely legendary. JJ Abrams is on the right track by bringing back Kirk and Spock. Speaking of Spock, the show started off with this taped bit with Shatner and Leonard Nimoy… (click ‘more’ for additional videos)
I am with Comic Book Guy when he says “of the four Star franchises: Wars, Trek, Gate and Search; Gate is easily my third favorite”. But Stargate has its moments, and in Simpsons-like fashion they celebrated their 200th episode with a very Treehouse Of Horror type set of stories and parodies…here is the Trek one The episode also parodied Team America, Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, and Farscape . One admirable quality of Stargate is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously (like that other show on SciFi Channel…Hey Ron I Kid I Kid…love BSG). vid thanks to rdascrapbook
William Shatner told "Extra" this weekend that ‘he’s ready to go’ if asked by JJ Abrams to be involved with Star Trek XI. Abrams may be looking for a new actor to play Kirk, but is rumored to have spoken to Shatner on at least one occasion. Shatner spent the rest of his evening being ‘roasted’ at a taping for Comedy Central. Lots of Trek at Shatner’s RoastIt seems that even though he is on a hit TV show and has a varied career, Shatner is still most known for his role as Captain Kirk. The Shat (see pic) was roasted in his captain’s chair from original series Star Trek. The show started off with a taped comedy video featuring Shatner trying to talk Leonard Nimoy into coming to the show…
Some Star Trek XI numbers 2…ranking of ‘TOS’ for preferred setting of STXI on new SciFi Wire poll (#1 ‘something new’) 2…ranking of ‘Matt Damon’ for the preferred new Kirk in a StarTrek.com poll (#1 ‘total unknown’) 5 (out of 5)… STXI’s level on Cinemablend ‘excite-o-meter’. 7…ranking of STXI on Cinescape top 10 movies in development Did someone mention Matt Damon? According to Moviehole, he has pulled out playing the title role in the Lance Armstrong biopic, to be replaced by Jake Gyllenhall. The reason given is ‘his busy schedule’. Matt will be filming Ocean’s Thirteen and The Bourne Ultimatum through the winter. Leaving his spring wide open…JJ Will Paramount bring back the Star Trek spoof Galaxy Quest at the same time its bringing back Trek itself? Tim Allen tells the SciFi Wire that a sequel idea has been presented to Dreamworks (now part of Paramount). Never give up, never surrender Tim.
The new Star Trek movie is still two years away but it has already has it’s very own ‘dancing baby’; in the form of a very angry Captain Kirk. Wherever people are talking about the new movie, invariably you will find a link to the ‘Shatner Is Kirk’ page at ytmnd.com (a community-based site where users upload various humorous animations and videos). Since its creation 3 weeks ago, the vid has been viewed over 65,000 times. You will often see links to the ‘Shatner Is Kirk’ page posted by those arguing against any actor (including Matt Damon) filling William Shatner’s space boots. Clearly it’s maker was sending a message that he joins in their ‘anti-recasting’ cause…or does he? The Trek XI Report talked to the man behind this internet hit, and he wants to “set the record straight”.
