Great Links: April Fools Day Edition

April Fools Day is as good a time as any to bring back The Great Links with a look at the few online Star Trek pranks today. And keeping with the funnies, we take a look at some recent Star Trek themed web comics and some funny new video mashups. So dive in below.


Trek Fools Day

As noted on our Twitter feed in our first article of the day, TrekMovie did not do a prank today (yes that planned Paramount Theme Park in Spain is real). And unlike last year, it was pretty quiet for Star Trek-themed pranks around the web. Here are links to a few

Note, if you saw any more Star Trek-themed gags, send in a tip!

Foolish Star Trek comics

In honor of April Fool’s Day, here is a collection of recent web comics with a Star Trek theme (click images to see full sizes).

Cracked: Best View On The Enterprise

Louder than Bombs: Teen Worf

VG Cats: Boldly Went

Shoe Box Blog: Stormtroopers and Red Shirts

Bigeyedeer: Spock’s Massage (not new, but been going around Twitter in last week)


Image of the Week: Mugatu Wookie?

This week brought a fairly foolish but fun Star Wars/Star Trek mashup image with Starfleet officer Han Solo and his Mugatu sidekick Chewbacca (via Phil Noto).

Videos of the Week: Growing Pains: TNG

For our foolish videos of the week here are a couple of new entries in the sub-genre of opening theme mashups. First up is Star Trek: The Next Generation mashed with the sitcom Growing Pains (via explevel2).

Our second theme mashup is all Shatner, with TJ Hooker opening mashed up with scenes from the TOS era movies to give you "TJ Hooker in the 23rd Century" (from ironhandz1).

Like the Star Wars/Star Trek mashup. How come we don’t see any of the Trek characters in the Star Wars universe…or have I not been paying attention?

Hmmm. Looks like someone is censoring on here. I wonder if Anthony censored the report from the Terran Empire.
Some funny things on here. Love Han Solo and Chewy with Star Trek Shirt and Phaser Rifle. Funny.

I’d like to see that Star Wars/Trek artwork on a t-shirt! Get that to TeeFury!

Captain Stiles: “I’m winning!!!”

Script s done!

“boborci – April 1, 2011 ”

April 1, 2011

nice one.

hey bob, any thought as to a KHAAN teaser at the end of this one?

Bob are you Serious or not?

Lol @ Bob

Please, boborci, no April Fools Day joke! Seriously? The script is done and it’s a little beauty? Have you been good to my captain, as in him having some mutual good loving? How’s the casting going for that beagle puppy?

Very exciting with no doubt lots of (nail biting) action, intrigue, fun, laughs and inevitably tinged with some sadness and grief as well. Such is the bitter/sweetness of life…

Bob….if this is an April fools joke you are in BIG trouble:-)

So you’re gonna let the loyal readers of trekmovie proof read it yeah?

9 — And it stars Erica Durrance, right??

that Star Wars thing is great…someone should do Trek in the style of Wars (i.e the SW film poster –

loving TJ in the 23rd Century as well…actually when i saw Trek 09 and Kirks big jump in the Narada reminded me of Hookers opening slo mo roof jump

i wonder if they still gonna make the TJ movie?

Hmm. Star Trek Phase 3 Staring T.J. Hooker as Capt Harriman.

16 – Wait, let me nudge Heather and see what she knows….

Mugatu Wookie !!!!!!!!!


Bob, what kind of creatures are in the Trek sequel ? Is there gonna be a Mugatu ? It better be kick ass like the lobster monster in trek 09′.

Too funny! :-)

Also, Han Solo would make a great character in the Trek universe as a civilian smuggler who helps out the Feds once in a while. Harrison Ford is a great actor. Even at his current age, he could make it work.

Han Solo Ford rocks.

Some have said that the white hairy beast singing “Friday” on “Late Night” with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon towards the end is a Mugatu.


C3p0 is now going to be playing the role of Data in the next Tng movie.

Worf will be played by Chebacca.

Just went to see “Source Code” and it reminds me a bit of “Quantum Leap”. At the end though credits it says Scott Bakula voice of Colter’s father. Colter talks to his father on the cell phone in the movie, but you never see his father in the movie.

Actors for the new Reboot Tng Movie Written by Bob Orci and Directed by Steven Speilburg.
Capt Picard will be played by James Caan.
William T Riker will be played by Christian Bale
Wesley Crusher will be played by Shia LaBeouf,
Geordi Laforge will be played by Jamie Fox.
Worf will be played by Michael Dorn.
Dr. Crusher will be played by Cathern Zeta Jones
Deanna Troi will be played by Charlieze Theron.
Data will be played by Owen Wilson.
Guinan will be played by Whoopie Goldburg.

LOL that is some f***ed up casting!

Bob Orci i hope your pulling ours legs

Not pulling our legs even

Bob. Did not buy that even for one Second. But good try.

#30 Yes, I have noted date and subject title. This clearly means that it is the Agoniser booth for Mr Orci until further notice. Finalisation of the script and and will be done from the booth. That’ll teachya…;)

15. “And it stars Erica Durance, right??”

Hey, if you’re going to cast a HORSE in the next movie………….

………then Shatner SHOULD be in it!

Uh, you know, with him being an equestrian and all…

9. boborci “Script’s done”

“…..and if my grandmother had wheels, she’d be a wagon!”

Edit again: “…script CAN and will done…” Just to reiterate….:)


Sorry, I don’t see the writers remaking “Generations”…..

#36 Anything is possible, given the subject of this thread. Yikes.
