Star Trek Trailer Spawns Parodies [UPDATE 3: even more Videos]

The new Star Trek trailer has been premiered, bootlegged, dubbed, subtitled, praised, pilloried, scrutinized, and analyzed. So it is too soon for it to be parodied? Apparently not —  as you will see below from a collection of fun and creative ‘fan edits’ 



New Trailer edits
What does the trailer remind you of? Is it a a return to a classic, a teen drama or a coming of age military movie from the 80s? Or maybe another franchise from another galaxy. And some may wonder A number YouTubers have ‘reinvisioned’ JJ Abrams new vision.

UPDATED: Top Trek embed fixed plus added two more (see ‘UPDATE’ notes)

Star Trek Smallville by Kelvington was awesome.

Ha! Pretty inventive!

I can’t get YouTube at work. DANGIT! Guess I’ll have to wait until I get home.

I’M CAPTAIN KIRK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

haha, great job GeneralGrin!

The Shatner Blog is priceless!

LOL @ “The latest Shatner Project vBlog”!

I actually like the Smallville version. I can absolutely see similarities in the personal conflicts within characters like Spock and Clark Kent.

Redux was pretty good! The syncing on the Annakin one is spot on!
I’m sure the atmosphere around Bill Shatner’s house these days is pretty close to the Shatner reaction one.

the new Scotty does kinda sound like Jar-Jar. Fascinating.

Yeah, definitely loved the Smallville redux…

The new Scotty is portrayed by someone who is brittish, he’s probably a whole lot closer to a Scottish accent than any American would have been.

All terrific stuff! The Smallville made me laugh big time!

Gotta love that Smallville

Beverly Hill 90210. Excelent

BOOBS in Star Trek…. I like that…

The Anakin and Smallville ones were great. Thank you.


Great! I almost died over that one

Shatner vBlog ftw. When the trailer audio stops as he smacks the display off its base, I LOL’ed.

God these Parodies are Just what I needed today, F’ing Brilliant, Cheers.

OH MY GOD!!!!! The Shatner project was INSANE!!! sooooo funny……

You have to just KNOW that “Bill” is looking at this and going “yes it’s true- I AM Captain Kirk!”

Loved the Anakin T. Kirk one- the similarities between this movie and “Sith” are amazing………………..yet “Sith” was a great movie so
Trek XI should be as well………….

Anyone do a James Dean version?

The singer in the TOS redux is too loud. ;-)

The Star Wars parody was absolutely hilarious. Well played, sir!

The one I’m calling “Enemy WIthin/Enemy Mine” was also very, very clever, even though I saw it coming. Still good.

Hats off to all!

Scott B. out.

God, these are hilarious.

FYI, the last one is just the 90210 one again, not Top Gun.

Great job, everyone! I am continually amazed at how creative this community can be!

Regarding the trailer and the volumes that have been written about continuity, canon, and “old vs. new,” I kept thinking as I watched it, “Wow. It doesn’t look the same as the Trek I’m used to–but it’s still rooted in the Trek I love.”

It reminded me of the adjustments I’ve made over the years: the TMP Enterprise, the Ent D and E, and pylons in Voyager that folded up like atrick car.

Though change ain’t easy, as they say, I’ll take new Trek (especially backed by real dollars from Paramount) over no Trek at all–even if it’s a little strange and unfamiliar.

LMFAO Jar Jar Binks really IS Scotty !!

the The latest Shatner Project vBlog is perfect.

I loved the Star Wars one. It was really funny and the dubbing was fantastic. Great Job!

I loved the latest Shatner Project sketch that was hilarious.

The other ones while fun showcase what I feel JJ Abrams is trying to turn Star Trek into.

These were fun

The trailer still confirms that JJ Abrams has screwed up Star Trek canon. It doesn’t matter anymore as the film is not canon.

Ok I have to say this are great I really like the Smallville one for some reason it worked so well with Star Trek. who knows one day Woners and Paramount may team up to do a crossover with Superman and Star Trek comic it happend before (X-men and Star Trek Marval)

sincerest form of flattery.



Captain Neill,

You are very mistaken. The movie is canon.

You guys can expect the best parodies to come out within the next couple of weeks. I know youtubers:)

Hey this was fantastic. I guess you can call it TrekVille staring Capt Kirk as Clark Kent. Ok thats so crazy and very funney. Love the paradies. Ok Keep them coming!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome clips!

The first one with the TOS music was my favourite!

Not a huge fan of the Star Wars one though. It was interesting I suppose but how about we not compare James T Kirk to Darth Vader?!

GeneralGrin- BRILLIANT! (And oh so obvious!) LMFAO!!!

sorry about code on top trek

On my iphone now…Will fix when I get back from jj abrams LA event

Have fun, Anthony!! I’m feeling very jealous of you right now!!

There is a way better Tp Gun Trek with the erlin and Loggins music

Dead on funny

I loved The latest Shatner Project vBlog !!! Kudos to ever thought that one up. Very Funny.

The latest Shatner Project vBlog (tvTrequer)
was the best by FAR



I was cracking up and smiling through all of them. The “Shatner Project” one is absolute, sheer genius.

Anikan gets my vote

That The Enemy Within clip never ceases to crack me up.

The Shatner vBlog was the best. “I’M KKKIRRRKKKK!”

In Top Trek, it is Spock in “Star Trek” Not Syler. Syler is in Heros. This is an insult to Trek.

HAHAHA … those put a smile on my face. What talent with so little footage to work with you’d think these guys were the professionals!

gommiL’s spot hit every beat of the original theme. Made me more excited perhaps than the actual trailer. I wish they’d incorporate the Shats original monologue somehow (even if it’s Nimoy delivering it a la Star Trek II)

The Uhura sequence in 90210 Trek was a riot. Not sure yet how I feel about them sexing up Trek. I still cringe when I think about how they treated T’pol.

And the Shatner Project … classic! Hits right at the heart of Shatner’s ego-complex.

Great work! Thanks for the laughs…

wow .. that 1st one was pretty good … !… r u sure that that will not become the unofficial fan’s favorite !

Hmm… didn’t laugh once at any of ’em. Was always under the impression that parodies are supposed to be funny. I’ve got a good sense of humor, but didn’t find anything funny at all in these.

The Shatner clip from “Enemy Within” was used to much funnier effect a year or so ago when he saw an article about the rumor about Matt Damon purported to play on his cabin view screen.

Brilliantly funny, and Anakin for the special “So True It Hurts” prize.

well, I thought they were a hoot.
